Many people in the Church today have the idea that "young-earth" creationism is a fairly recent invention, popularized by fundamentalist Christians in the mid-20th century. . . Scholar Terry Mortenson has done fascinating original research on this subject in England, and documents that several leading, pre-Darwin scholars and scientists, known as "scriptural geologists" did not believe in long ages for the earth. Mortenson sheds light on the following:

• Before Darwin, what did the Church believe about the age of the earth?
• Why did it believe this way?
• What was the controversy that rocked the Church in 19th-century England?
• Who were the "scriptural geologists"?
• What influences did the Church contend with even before Darwin’s book?
• What is the stance of the Church today?
