The Geology Book

The Geology Book

by Dr. John D. Morris

Whether jutting skyward, or languishing in the murky depths of the deep, rocks and sediments hold our little planet together. Dr John Morris takes the reader on a tour of the Earth’s crust, pointing out both the natural beauty and the scientific evidences for creation. Well illustrated, this book presents an accurate view of Earth’s natural history.


These lessons are geared for middle-school students. Each lesson contains a series of questions to answer that pertain to the reading assignment. There is a section of each lesson for advanced students.

It is important that teachers prepare themselves by reading the stated pages prior to having the student read the assignment. If a child is not able to read yet, parents may wish to read the text to the student.
