books


I don’t want to make it a practice to review things I haven’t seen, but these books look really good. Answers in Genesis has a series of Pocket Guides and right now, they are on sale (saving you almost $10 if you buy all 5 of them).

The description says that these are meant to be concise and powerful and that they are illustrated. There are 5 topics:

  • The Global Flood
  • Noah’s Ark
  • Social Issues
  • Charles Darwin
  • The Bible

Each has 96 pages and is softcover. I took a peek at the table of contents of the one on the Flood and there are several authors, and many sub-topics, so though there are less than 100 pages, it seems like the book is packed with information.

In our increasingly busy society, this is one way Christians can quickly keep informed on the main points they need to know about these important issues. I’d love to read comments from anyone who has seen or who owns these.

I just heard the fascinating story of Dr. Carl Werner. Someone challenged him to prove evolution, when he was in college. He thought about it for a long time, trying to devise an experiment that could give evidence as to the truth of the theory of evolution. He finally figured out a way to perform such an experiment, and he and his wife traveled around the world interviewing scientists and visiting archeological dig sites. Somewhere along the way, Dr. Werner changed his mind; he started out believing that evolution was true and ended up believing in creation.

He has written two books on the subject and also has a DVD available.

On the page at New Leaf Press where you can find out about his book, you can also download 3 audio files where he talks about the project in more depth. Click on the “podcasts” buttons (though they’re really not podcasts in the sense that it’s not a regularly recurring episodic type of show, just three recordings you can download).

Ouch. That would be a painful choice. There are so many good books about creation science. The books I own on the subject cover a couple of feet of bookshelf space, at least. But I want to tell you about the book that first started my interest in the subject.

It was originally called The Answers Book, when I first got it many years ago. The new version is called The New Answers Book and it’s supposed to be the most popular book on the subject. They now have a second volume with answers to even more questions. But the first one is the classic. It answers 27 common questions people have about creation science. Questions like Where did Cain get his wife? What really happened to the dinosaurs? Doesn’t carbon-14 dating prove the earth is old? and Couldn’t God have used evolution? You can read it online if you can’t wait to find out the answers to some of these questions.

I think it’s important that all Christians know these answers so they are prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks.
