Straight Answers to Tough Questions

This is a small 46 page booklet that provides helpful answers to twenty categories of questions.  The answer range from addressing the age of the earth to the arguments against theistic evolution.  It is concise, readable, and understandable, while still presenting accessible information. It is not a technical read, though science is certainly used.  Most all references are to other biblical creation material.  It maintains a literal six day creation only thousands of years agoLearn More

The Genesis Flood

One of the great classics of biblical creationism argued from a credible scientific analysis while still adhering to and upholding a normal literal interpretation of Genesis.  It is well researched, well written, and carefully documented.  It is considered a scholarly work that does present some fairly technical information at times.  Its analysis of the biblical account of the Flood as it relates to geologic formations and evidences apparent today are still compelling.  Its treatment ofLearn More

Case for a Creator

In his typical style, Lee Stroble presents persuasive arguments in favor of an intelligent designer as the responsible agent behind the material universe by way of a compilation of several well articulated interviews.  The volume does touch on presuppositional considerations while effectively utilizing empirical evidences availed in modern science.  The strength of the book is found in Stroble’s lawyer style examination of evidence and the credentials of the interviewees.  Several arguments and strong counter-rebuttals toLearn More

The Biblical Basis for Modern Science

A well written book that integrates science and faith in a literal understanding of Scripture.  Scholarly in its treatment of science when scientific evaluations or principles are expounded, however, the focus of this work is not merely scientific in nature.  In its 429 pages of content, it leverages a credible aptitude of scientific understanding and experience more for the purpose of biblically-based devotion to the triune God than for instruction or disputation.  It contains helpfulLearn More

Scientific Creationism

A very controversial work that must be evaluated in light of its publication date.  There is a timeless quality about this volume, however, there are several examples and quotations that have since been deprecated.  Some evolutionists have ridiculed certain generalizations made in the book and have castigated Morris’ efforts as mere pseudoscience.  These criticisms lack any objective substance and simply fail to demonstrate their claims.  One potential source of contention is that the book suggestsLearn More

Science and the Bible

This is an outstanding little volume that concisely dispels much of the alleged contention between modern science and the Bible.  With only 128 pages of core material, it is a light read that argues effectively, presenting complex scientific concepts in an easy to understand distilled fashion.  Many basic and general questions are addressed within a selected variety of scientific disciplines.  One chapter is dedicated to the biblical account of the Flood, another to ancient history,Learn More

Evolution and the Modern Christian

A very light read that briefly touches on a variety of arguments against evolution and uniformitarian assumptions from both a scientific and biblical perspective.  The majority of scientific emphasis is placed on the discipline of geology and how that relates to other disciplines such as paleontology, archeology, and even physics.  This small 68 page resource is limited in both its breadth and depth, however, may be helpful as an introductory consideration to the biblical frameworkLearn More

Biblical Catastrophism and Geology

This is a small 22 page pamphlet that specifically addresses the study of geology.  It opens with a discussion about uniformitarian assumptions and the argument for catastrophism over uniformitarianism.  It quickly moves into the understanding of catastrophism from a biblical framework and concludes with a consideration of implications.  This is not a technical booklet, yet may be helpful as a very concise and accessible read regarding the significance of biblical catastrophism. Morris, Henry.  Biblical CatastrophismLearn More

The Battle for the Beginning

Essentially a commentary dedicated to Genesis chapter 1, along with two complementary chapters on Genesis 2:1-3 and 3:1-24 respectively.  MacArthur does a fine job of specifically addressing various “alternative views” to the normal literal interpretation of Genesis 1.  Though not a scientific volume, it does include several references to scientific considerations and arguments that challenge the theory of evolution and uniformitarianism.  This volume presents a very readable, yet carefully studied exegesis of the most foundationalLearn More

Why Won’t They Listen?

This book specifically addresses the impact that the teaching of evolution has had on society.  It is intended to serve as an equipping tool for evangelism and not necessarily a resource for cosmological or biblical study.  It is clearly based upon a normal literal interpretation of Scripture while occasionally appealing to pertinent scientific considerations that align with a literal understanding of the Bible.  Though mostly evidential in nature, it does appeal to a presuppositional approachLearn More
