DefeatingDarwinismDefeating Darwinism by Opening Minds, IVP, Philip Johnson

We have a fine catalogue of books dealing with the misleading assumptions and affirmations by the Darwinists. This is an issue that can be studied in considerable depth. If you want a single book that sums up the issue concisely and clearly- this is the book. We recommend all of Philip Johnson’s books and many others- but you will find a clear and understandable argument regarding the errors of Darwinism in this book.

WILLIAM EWART GLADSTONE, David W. Bebbington, Eerdmans Publishing Co.

William-Ewart-GladstoneWILLIAM EWART GLADSTONE, David W. Bebbington, Eerdmans Publishing Co.

This is a terrific life story about an aristocratic man in Great Britain in the 1800’s.  His participation on Parliament, in the Church, and in the society of his day had profound effects.  He is an outstanding example of a Christian applying his Christian beliefs at the highest levels of government.  He served in Parliament for more than sixty years and as Prime Minister for four different periods during the reign of Queen Victoria.

From the book:  “Gladstone was a highly gifted man with a striking appearance.  In his earlier years he was slim, erect, and had tousled black hair.  In his old age, observers were most impressed by the majestic forehead and the piercing eye that made opponents quail.  His mind was sharp, his memory excellent, and from an early age he was trained in precise reasoning.  He worked formidably hard, applying himself to paperwork for long hours at a time.  As Prime Minister in the 1880’s, when he had the help of only four secretaries, he composed some twenty thousand letters a year.  He was also an effective speaker.”

The Wedge of Truth

The Wedge of Truth, Phillip E. Johnson (InterVarsity Press)

The Wedge of Truth, by Professor Johnson, builds on his previous books, especially Darwin on Trial, Defeating Darwinism, and Reason in the Balance. It is not a rehash of previous works. It reviews the case against naturalistic Evolution in a fresh manner. Johnson especially emphasizes the problem of information content. The human, animal, and plant genomes carry enormous information. Natural selection and mutations neither create nor add to that information content. So what is the source of that content if it is not from a transcendent designer? The book deals incisively with the epistemological difficulties of the scientific establishment, who begin with materialistic assumptions and, then, appeal to those assumptions as if they were proof. Dallas Willard states in the Forward, “They cannot afford to be wrong about the godlessness of reality, for now our whole system of education is based on that assumption, just as some while ago it was based on the assumption of God.” Chapter 3 is titled, “The Kansas Controversy” and analyzes the furor that erupted when the School Board of Kansas decided to broaden the discussion on evolution.

This book is for those who want to keep current on the argument from design vs. that of a mindless, purposeless naturalism; for those who are concerned about the epistemological basis of contemporary scientific philosophy; and for those who are concerned about the impact of a rigid materialistic philosophy on children and high school and college students. As usual, Johnson writes in an appealing and clear manner.

DARWIN’S BLACK BOX

Darwin’s Black Box Michael J. Behe (The Free Press )

There have been a number of serious challenges to the popularized theory of evolution, but Michael Behe, Associate Professor of Biochemistry at Lehigh University, has raised one of the most formidable. Microbiology is a relatively new field. Darwin and his successors (until the last two decades) knew nothing of the inner construction of the molecule. They simply assumed that molecules would cooperate in the grand scheme of development from non-life to life; from simple to complex; and from a few organisms to great numbers (hence the black box). He demonstrates the principle of irreducible complexity of the molecule. Every molecule is a complex mechanism that will only function holistically. The idea of an incomplete molecule waiting around for a needed component is an absurdity. This crucial book is in its 16th printing.

Rev_cover_newflattned_08

Dr. Foster H. Shannon

Click on the image above to see excerpts from an interview with Dr. Shannon talking about the book of Revelation in his book “The Scroll With Seven Seals”.

The Introduction and Background sections lay the groundwork for a careful, informed reading of the book. In an explanation of the contents of Revelation many of the problems that the reader will encounter are clarified to lead to enjoyable reading and easier understanding. The process that led to the contents of the book was inductive study; not imposing pre-conceived concepts on Revelation, but taking care at every turn to present the message contained in the book as clearly as possible. As a result, it presents a fresh perspective on Revelation. Many of the warnings of Revelation are seen, not in a fatalistic sense, but as presenting the hope of redemption to those who will heed its message. Revelation begins in the first century with the early church, proceeds through history until the return of Christ, and warns of cataclysmic events prior to that return.
It is essentially a book of hope for Christians that their Savior will be with them in whatever trials and difficulties are ahead, and that an absolutely glorious future awaits them in Christ’s coming kingdom. It is a book of hope for the unbelieving, in that it warns of the consequences of persisting in unbelief and consistently affirms God’s invitation to believe in him and drink of the waters that he generously offers.
