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.

Format: Paperback
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.

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
I normally don't read books (or watch movies, for that matter) that have litle promise. When I went to the Christian bookstore to look at the available material on the subject of Creationism (vs. Evolutionism), I encountered a variety of possibilities, including those books writen by Behe and Johnson. However, I determined that they were too involved for my non-scientific mind to comprehend.
Then, when I saw Leap of Faith, I thought this would be more my style, as it is more apologetic and less scientific. However, I must say that I was disappointed in Leap of Faith. I kept waiting for it to deliver what I thought it would, but the authors really seemed to concentrate on showing the bias Evolutionists have toward Creationists. The vast majority of what I read was not very new. The clip and paste technique of the many quotes became very tedious, and I found myself doing more skimming than close reading.
In addition, I found several grammar/structure errors that made this book appear rushed. The note preceding the "Notes" on page 351 said there was a temporary loss of the author's library, making some citations incomplete. This concerned me. Would it not have been better to have taken the time to find these lost items or else dump the quotes/information in question? I thought so. Maybe these are little things, but I wondered how closely the authors/editors fine-tuned this book. (It's amazing to me, though, to read on the back cover how Mr. Weldon has authored/coauthored more than 75 books! Perhaps this explains the lack of detail.)
The authors also gave little room for disagreement. While I hold to a young earth and no possibility of Theistic Evolution as they do, I wish they would have been a little more fair in explaining the other views on creation.

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....
