"Genesis is foundational to all of Scripture, and so we must vigorously defend it as seriously as any other part of the Bible. Dr Sarfati has done an excellent job of critically analyzing and refuting the all-too-common compromise on Genesis by Christians today. As a leading proponent of the day-age theory and progressive creation, the astronomer Dr Hugh Ross is a major player in compromise. This book clearly demonstrates the serious biblical and scientific problems in the teachings of Hugh Ross. Refuting Compromise is a 'must read' for all Christians..." --Dr Danny Faulkner, (Full) Professor of Astronomy/Physics, University of South Carolina - Lancaster

Sarfati's book is written with the mind of a scientist, to appeal to the scientific curiosity in all of us, and at the same time it is written from the heart of a child, which appeals to childlike faith, which still remains in us all, to one degree or another. This is a rare combination in scientific books, or in Christian Bible studies, which I find fascinating, compelling and spiritually edifying. I don't want ever to lose that child heart of wonder and awe that first came upon me when I entered the Kingdom of God and Christ by the regeneration and new birth from The Spirit of Holiness, for if I do, I am spiritually dead.
A child of God who hears Genesis being read for the first time will believe its simplicity, unless he or she has been pre conditioned to reject it. There are many churches that teach the simple creation story in Sunday School, and then renege on the whole thing in the pulpit. Even Bible colleges and seminaries put more stock in conventional scientific theories than in the straightforward and authoritative view of the Bible.
"Who cares", say many detractors and skeptics, "about how old the universe is, or even if evolutionary theory or creationism is correct?" The child of Him Whose name is "The Truth" cares. I know that I care, and I care very deeply, because the whole world is being bombarded daily with attacks on the authority and veracity of the word of God, and I take those attacks personally. Satan is attacking my Father, my Older Savior Hero Brother and my Holy Advocate and Friend before the world and mocking them: Mt 9:24 He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.
Mr 5:40 And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying.
Lu 8:53 And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead.
"They laughed at Him".
Who are these fools, to laugh at their God and Creator?
I have read and heard their laughing mockery; haven't you?
Yet I tremble before His infinite wisdom, power and holiness, even every word that proceeds from His mouth.
Ps 119:120 My flesh trembleth for fear of thee; and I am afraid of thy judgments.
Isa 66:2 For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.
De 8:3 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.
Mt 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
One word of His mouth is more valuable than all the wealth this world can offer. That is the spirit in which Jonathan Sarfati's book is written, and he heroically defends the word of God, according to the gifts and knowledge God has given him. For that, he is to be commended and congratulated. There are far too few defending the faith once delivered to the holy ones.
