Comment: This book has already been well loved by someone else and that love shows. It MIGHT have highlighting, underlining, be missing a dust jacket, or SLIGHT water damage, but over-all itâ?TMs still a good book at a great price! (if it is supposed to contain a CD or access code, that may be missing)

This book is not academic but quite popular, this may be why it consists for a great part of cutting and pasting citations. This is acceptable in the first part of the book, where they show much evidence for persecution in the American society of those who do not believe in "evolution". They succeed here also in showing the tenets and cultural impacts of the religion of evolution, (although I would rather recommend Johnson's Reason in the Balance.) The trouble begins with the part on the empirical evidence for evolution, which is not impressive (I would rather recommend Denton's Evolution, or Johnson's Darwin.) And the authors miss the major argument (failing to show the incompatibility of evolution with some of the most basic truths such as consciousness, morality, free will, beauty, rationality, as O'Hear does in his Beyond Evolution.) And the parts on the Big Bang or on geology ("flood geology") are catastrophic. I doubt the authors understand much about this issues. I would rather recommend other books (in the direction of Intelligent Design), but this present book may satisfy Young Earth Creationists.
I value much the apologetic efforts and courage of the authors, as their site and TV show, but I hope they will become more critical of Young Earth Creationism, it does more evil to Christianity by discreting it, in my opinion.

I came looking for evidence to support Creationism and left empty handed. The authors continuously miss quote or take quotes out of context. Most of their sources are secondary and while there are notes referencing the sources there is no bibliography or index. The book is void of evidence, even in the sections titled "Creation Evidence". It is apparent that the authors either did not read Darwin or misunderstood what they did read. They cosistantly mischaracterize his studies and writings, and they assign him intentions and thoughts which he explicitlly denies in his writings. All in all, the book is a disappointment. I would suggest you save your money.

Format: Paperback
In recent years more and more scientists in many specialties have spoken out against naturalism or vertical evolution [also known as macroevolution]. Geneticists, mathematicians, cosmologists, astronomers, philosophers, physicists, and even some in the areas of biology, anthropology, and other fields have voiced doubts as to whether naturalistic Darwinian evolution has any real evidence or merit. Unfortunately the public [and media] really misses the main issue, which is NOT the Bible versus science, but whether purely natural processes are responsible for all that we see, both living and non-living. It is not a 6-day creation religious belief versus the "facts" of science but the FACTS of SCIENCE which show incredible design and coding versus a happenstance event--or actually quadrillions of random events, all happening as if by design, to create a complex living creature that can reproduce itself....

I came looking for evidence to support Creationism and left empty handed. The authors continuously miss quote others in their poorly reasoned diatribe. Most of the quotes are from secondary sources and while there are notes referencing the sources there is no bibliography. The book is void of evidence, even in the sectionstitled "Creation Evidence" It is apparent that the authors have not read Darwin of if they did read him they did not understand what they read. They assign him intentions which he explicitly denies in his writings. All in all, the book is a great disappointment, lacking in evidence and filled with poorly reasoned attacks on evolution. I would suggest you save your money, even a good creationist will be disappointed by this book.

Format: Paperback
This book can be a good introduction for those who are relatively new to being exposed to the fallacies of the evolutionary theory. The book can be broken down into two basic sections. The first section shows the obvious bias of evolutionists against creationists. With some of the statements the evolutionary community accepts, one has to wonder how they can call any creationist "close minded". This is perhaps the best section to read for those who have no idea that the evolutionists are militant in their beliefs. The second section deals with the specifics of how evolution cannot only be improbable, but impossible. This gives some hard "ammo" for creationists to debate evolutionists. The largest problem with the second section, is the authors seem to grapple with how deep they will dicuss the issues. As the book at times seems more like a C.S. Lewis book, it will at this point lose the everyday person who is reading this book as an overview of evolution. Nevertheless, I would recommend the book, simply because of the wealth of knowledge it contains. Many authors and scientists are quoted in detail throughout the book. This gives us an excellent sample of many of our most educated minds. But I couldn't help but feel at times that about 30 pages should have been chopped off the book. This would steamline the book a little more, and the reader would probably not become "bogged down" with certain sections.
