Wayne Shepherd welcomes us to a very special edition of “Encounter God’s Truth”—a weekly outreach of Whitcomb Ministries.

The week ahead includes the final day of October and the first day of November. Thus, we take time to consider the significance of “Two Fall Holidays.” These are Reformation Day, which is October 31, and Thanksgiving, which we will celebrate together all throughout the month of November.

The Reformation involved the rediscovery of Biblical truth that had been all but forgotten—beginning with a new emphasis on the gospel. Dr. Whitcomb compares this to the rediscovery of creation truth in the modern Biblical creation movement. His comments come from the 50th anniversary of the groundbreaking creationist book, “The Genesis Flood.” 

We also consider Thanksgiving—focusing on the account of Jesus healing 10 lepers.

We hope that this program will be a real encouragement to you and will remind you that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end—as reflected through these “Two Fall Holidays.”

John Whitcomb

Dr. Whitcomb was born on June 22, 1924, in Washington, DC, to Col. & Mrs. John C. Whitcomb Sr. His early years (age 3 - 6 years) were spent in China. During high school he attended McCallie School in Chattanooga, TN. He spent one year at Princeton University before being drafted into the United States Army, where he served in Europe from 1944 until 1946. After the war he returned to Princeton and earned a degree in history. While at Princeton in February 1943, he came to know the Lord under the guidance of Dr. Donald B. Fullerton and the Princeton Evangelical Fellowship. Dr. Whitcomb entered Grace Theological Seminary as a student in 1948 where he earned a MDiv in 1951, ThM in 1953 and ThD in 1957. He joined the faculty at Grace Theological Seminary where he served as Professor of Theology and Old Testament, Director of Postgraduate Studies, and other positions from 1951 to 1990. 
Dr. Whitcomb is internationally known as an author and teacher. He is best known for his role as co-author with Henry Morris, PhD, of The Genesis Flood, published in 1961. The Genesis Flood is considered one of the most influential books of the 20th Century, and marks the beginning of the modern creation movement. In addition to The Genesis Flood, Dr. Whitcomb has published a number of books on science and the Bible, commentaries, and other works highlighted on his web site.
