God uses ordinary men and women to change the world. In this inspiring biography of a 20th century hero of the faith, you will gain an outstanding mentor for your Christian life. Good and Faithful Servant is the story of Dr. John Whitcomb, a veteran of World War 2, who embarked on a relentless pursuit of biblical and scientific truth.

Even though Whitcomb was steeped in evolutionary philosophies while at Princeton, he became a revered theologian who preached the literal biblical account of Creation. What seemed like a long-lost battle over origins and evolution was overturned as this man walked humbly, yet boldly with God.

“People will look back on this time in history, and just as we think about greats like Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Wesley, George Whitfield, and others, they will talk about Dr. Whitcomb.” — Ken Ham

Dr. Whitcomb is widely known as the co-author of The Genesis Flood which was used by God to ignite the modern creationism movement. This biography tells of his personal heartache, his influences, and his enduring faith in action. Written by his son, this book is filled with accurate accounts and many personal stories and photographs.

Families, clergy, and scholars alike will find life-changing wisdom in the life story of this good and faithful servant who sought to defend the accuracy of God’s Word in the face of widely accepted, though ultimately flawed, science.
