Biblically-Based Books and Guides!

Grand Canyon, a Different View created an international controversy in 2004 when a move was made to ban it from the National Park’s bookstores.  (See book controversy for more information.)

It was sold in the park bookstores for 10 years, and although it was the only book sold in the park that presents a Biblical alternative for the formation of the Grand Canyon, it was removed in 2014.
