James Ussher and the History of Bible Chronology

Description: Paul Taylor, the Director of the Mount St. Helens Creation Center, speaks on Ussher and his legacy. Ussher‘s famous Annals of the World still has a major impact on creation studies today. However, it is fashionable for modern Christians – even some creationists – to join evolutionists in disparaging Ussher‘s legacy. This biographical talk explains Ussher’s intellectual and theological background, and shows the depth of his research and ideas – sufficient depth that we should still accept much of his findings today.

SpeakerPaul Taylor was born and grew up near Manchester in the North of England. He studied piano at Chetham’s School of Music, but read Chemistry at the University of Nottingham. Paul taught Chemistry, Physics and Science in government (“public”) schools in England and Wales for 18 years, eventually becoming a Head of Science, with a Masters in Science Education and Management from the University of Cardiff.

Paul was saved at the age of 15. He came across creationist literature in his late teens, and quickly became involved in speaking and writing on the subject of creation and evolution, Genesis and apologetics. Since 2005, he has been a full-time creation speaker, having worked for Answers in Genesis (UK/Europe) and Creation Today. He and his wife are the Directors of the Mount St Helens Creation Center. Paul is married to Geri, and they have five children between them.
