In 1982 What Is Creation Science? (WCS) by Henry M. Morris & Gary E. Parker
appeared. It endeavored to explain a very generalized scientific creation
world view to a lay audience. Parker, a biologist, wrote the first part
dealing with the life sciences and Morris, a hydraulics engineer, scribed
the section on the physical sciences. This book presented the case for
creation without reference to Biblical arguments and citations. The
Institute for Creation Research (ICR), at that time, was promoting its
two model approach which compared and contrasted the evidence for the
creation and evolution models to origins. WCS and the earlier more technical
Scientific Creationism (general edition) (1974) were published years before
the rise of the Intelligent Design (ID) movement. ICR's two model approach
and ID both strove to decouple Biblical bias from their creation/design
arguments. WCS is filled with quotes of evolutionists who themselves point
out the weaknesses of their own theory. These quotations and resulting
discussions were made to show the merits of the creation model from a
strictly scientific perspective and to allow for a wider readership by
secular audiences. While much in the earlier volume is similar to Paul
Gardner's The New Creationism (TNC) there is a significant difference in emphasis.

TNC is specifically geared to the Christian market and includes many Biblical
references as it sets forth the Biblical view of origins emphasizing the Creation,
the Fall, the Flood and post-Flood eras. TNC is written in a lay friendly manner
and while confrontation with evolutionary theory is inevitable it is de-emphasized
in favor of establishing a Biblical creationary overview.

This is an excellent book as far as giving a positive argument on behalf of young earth creationism rather than against Darwinian evolution. I would have liked it to be more detailed and technical, but that would have been less readable for the general public. I would have also preferred more secular sources as far as the references go because there are many secular studies that support some of his conclusions. Otherwise, it was readable and concise and is a nice introduction to the different young earth models. Many of these models are still in somewhat of an infancy stage because of a lack funds as the vast majority of government money goes towards evolutionary research, but there is good research going on by creationists and this book references some of it.
Evolutionists will criticize it for purely philosophical reasons. For a book that exposes the fatal flaws in the evolutionary axiom I would recommend starting with Dr. Jonathan Sarfati's "Refuting Evolution" which would be a good companion with this book for giving a good overview of the creationist side to this debate.

I found this book very usefull and I am ordering more to give to my friends.

It covers the main topics of biblical creationism, in a simple but rigourous manner both theologically and scientifically.

We find topics such as the building of a creationist cosmology (v.g. white hole cosmology), evidences for a young Earth, DNA as coded information, the fossil record, the geological column, catastrophic plate tectonics, homologies, recapitulation, Ice Age, human evolution, ancient civilizations, etc.

While discussing the evolutionary model, the author shows that the biblical account of Creation, the fall, the Flood, Babel and post-flood dispersion can make perfect sense of current scientific observations, be used as the foundation of model-building and provide critical insights to evaluate current models.

I find the book very interesting to someone who is familiar with biblical creationism and wants to have a summary of its main points, as wll as to someone who is not familiar with it but wants to develop understanding of its main arguments.

In the end, it is clear that since science cannot provide a natural process that is able to create matter and energy out of nothing, nor life out of non-living chemicals, the only possible scientific conclusion (as far as evidence is concerned) is that matter, energy and life had a supernatural cause.

The Bible is relevant because it tells us all about God, in a way that is relevant for us to understand the past, the present and the future...
