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.

A very well-done, well-researched book that does indeed expose evolution for the empty theory it is. Several of my favorite quotes from the book that address the fruits of Darwinism:

In 1861 Marx wrote to Engels that “Darwin’s book is very important and serves me as a basis in natural selection for the class struggle in history…” Thus was born the concept that all men are not created equal…in fact, they’re not even created. The concept of love for ones fellow man could now be rejected as being of no validity, to be replaced by the concept that hate and revenge were the new “laws and privileges” of the day. “Superior” races could now pit themselves against “inferior” races with a clear conscience, knowing that they were but enforcing the natural law of “survival of the fittest.”

This is exactly what Marxist ideology has spawned in the last 100-plus years, leading to the deaths of some 150 million people. Hitler and others over the years have murdered millions of victims, not with the misguided intentions of saving their souls or punishing their sins, but because they were competitors for food and obstacles to “evolutionary progress.”

As to the effect his unprovable and untenable theory had on his own life, this quote says it all:

Darwin could neither live with God, nor could he escape him. He knew, in the very depths of his soul, that evolution didn’t, and never could explain the existence of life in all its forms. This internal battle raged throughout his life and it not only cost him his physical health, but to some degree, his mental health. Darwin was dealing with a much deeper and fundamental feeling – guilt. In essence, his inability to either accept divine creation or to escape it caused his own reasoning processes to become strained. As Dr. Clark and Dr. Bales observed, “Reason led Darwin to God, so Darwin killed reason. He trusted his mind when reasoning about evolution, but not about God.”

I absolutely LOVED this book. At first glace, I was not interested in this book at all. I started reading it at work and fell in love with its intriguing facts about religion. The first 5 pages or so were a little dry to me, because of its sarcastic tones (which I did not catch on to at the time) were infuriating me, telling me that religious happenings were false. After getting past the disclaimers about Christianity/God/ the beginning of time, this book inspired me in numerous ways! I love how it supported the idea of Christianity and the power of God and his creation of the world. I would recommend this to ANYONE who believes, even the slightest, in God. I have told all my neighbors and my atheist friend to read this book. It makes me want to tell everyone about how great this book is and the power of religion. I am a 21 year-old female who isn't fond of reading. If I loved this book and read the whole thing in a few weeks, I believe ANYONE will feel the same way!! I am getting inspired all over again from writing this post. Therefore, I might just have to read it again!

The book is excellent, the scientific evidence presented exposes why Darwinian Evolution is antiscientific and antirational or as Dr. Michael Denton in his book "Evolution: a Theory in Crissis" refers to the chemical evolution scenario as "an affront to reason".
I bought mine sixteen years ago, but I got this other in order to send it as a gift to a family member.

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.
