Review: Chronicles of Dinosauria

Millions of years ago. . . is the start of most of the books, television shows, movies and other resources available that discuss dinosaurs.  Many people just accept this as fact and don't even question it.  Dinosaurs are the most used animal to promote evolutionary thinking and the earth being millions of years old.  But, a lot of evidence exists to prove that the Biblical account of Creation is true, the earth is only thousands not millions of years old, and dinosaurs and man co-existed on the earth.  I was very excited to have an opportunity to review Chronicles of Dinosauria, The History &; Mystery of Dinosaurs and Man  from Master Books.  

Quick Overview, "Every legend is said to include some grain of truth, and for years co-author Dave Woetzel has sought to separate fact from fiction as he explores mysteries related to dinosaurs, mankind's history, and the biblical time-line. Teaming with artist and designer Richard Dobbs, the two have created a visual archive of expeditions and intriguing clues to explore, all of which highlight the connection to the authority and reliability of Scripture."

Chronicles of Dinosauria was written by Dave Woetzel and illustrated by Richard Dobbs.  It is a hardcover book that is 86 pages long.  The book is divided into 8 Chapters:

The Creation and the Dinosaurs
The Flood and the Dinosaurs
Fossil Evidence of Dinosaurs and Man
Historical Evidence of Dinosaurs and Man
Artistic Evidence of Dinosaurs and Man
Cryptozoology Evidence of Dinosaurs and Man 
Biblical Evidence of Dinosaurs and Man
Apologetics and Conclusion

You can purchase Chronicles of Dinosauria from Christianbook.com, Amazon.com, BN.com or nlpg.com.  Prices will vary.  At the time of this posting the Christianbook.com price is $12.99.

I would highly recommend Chronicles of Dinosauria for adults and children of all ages!  Those who already believe in Creationism will find some of the facts and information interesting (I know I did!)  Homeschoolers can use this book as a teaching tool for their children.  People who are not sure what to believe on the Creation/Evolution debate would enjoy reading through it.  Even those with an open mind who believe evolutionary theories may find it an interesting read.  Adults and older children can read and enjoy it on their own, while younger children can enjoy the illustrations and photographs while an adult summarizes the readings for them.  The illustrations are simply stunning!  The book is full of fascinating factual evidence and beautiful photographs of artifacts , artwork,  and fossils.  I learned many things I never knew before reading this book.  The facts and evidence are presented in an interesting way.  The author has done a very thorough job with his research and evidence and has personally visited each of the locations multiple times that are spoken about in the chapter on Cryptozoology.  I found the chapter on Artistic Evidence of Dinosaurs and Man very interesting because I have never seen anything like it before.  Most of all, Chronicles of Dinosauria doesn't contradict what the Bible tells us in the book of Genesis.  It honors the authority of Scripture while showing us evidence of man's interaction with dinosaurs.

I love that there are some sources out there that can be used with Creationist teaching, especially with Dinosaurs as the topic!

What Really Happened to the Dinosaurs is another good one, but more for younger children.
