John Whitcomb: July 5, 2016

On Tuesday of this coming week, July 5, our speaker on this broadcast, Dr. John Whitcomb, will be in Williamstown, Kentucky, to cut the ribbon to the Ark Encounter—Answers in Genesis’ life-size reconstruction of Noah’s Ark.

Dr. Whitcomb is the co-author, with Dr. Henry Morris, of “The Genesis Flood,” the groundbreaking book published in 1961 that has been credited as launching the modern Biblical creationism movement.

Recently, Dr. Whitcomb spoke about “The Genesis Flood” to a gathering of Christian leaders assembled at the Colonial Hills Baptist Church in Indianapolis for the 96th annual meeting of the Fundamental Baptist Fellowship International. We want to thank both of these organizations for allowing us to bring you this audio here on “Encounter God’s Truth.”

Join with host Wayne Shepherd in listening to this historic, holiday edition of “Encounter God’s Truth.” Every week Whitcomb Ministries seeks to reinforce the concept that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end!
