Disputed Issues (Contending for Christian Faith in Today’s Academic Setting)


DisputedIssuesDisputed Issues (Contending for Christian Faith in Today’s Academic Setting)
, Stephen T. Davis, Baylor University Press

This is an outstanding apologetic by Dr. Stephen Davis, Pitzer professor of Philosophy at Claremont McKenna College. He engages with many of the critical arguments made against Christianity at the academic level, in our day. He understands what those in the academic world are thinking, and ably refutes their arguments. Sixteen chapters contend with various lines of criticism against the Bible including: Should We Believe The Jesus Seminar?; Have the Infidels Refuted the Resurrection?; Should Evangelicals Be Pluralists?; Is “Survival of Death” Coherent? “Disputed Issues should be required reading for all thoughtful students, philosophers, theologians, and seminarians who are interested in exploring the cogency of Christian faith in light of contemporary criticism”.~ Charles Taliaferro, Professor Of Philosophy, St. Olaf College.

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.

Reason in the Balance: The Case Against Naturalism in Science, Law & Education

Reason in the Balance: The Case Against Naturalism in Science, Law & Education Phillip E. Johnson (InterVarsity)

Johnson documents how naturalism is the pervasive philosophy of education, law, government, and the media. The result is that the Christian worldview is put at an unfair disadvantage. The remedy is a clear awareness of the problem and a willingness to constructively and courteously articulate the biblical worldview in the public square. ISBN 0-8308-1929-0 Soft Cover245 pages

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.

IS COLLEGE WORTH IT?

college





William J Bennett is a former Secretary of Education in the Reagan Administration This book presents a comprehensive survey of the college/university scene in the United States.

Dr. Bennett feels strongly that it is erroneous to propose that everyone should get a college degree. He points out that training is offered or should be offered in perhaps as many as forty businesses, technical instrumental operations, health service specialties, and construction skills—where many will find a career that will produce a lifetime net income higher than that of many college graduates (especially so when the cost of paying off student loans is subtracted).

He states that of the 35,000 colleges and universities in the United States, only 1,500 are worth the money! He gives substantial information on the best schools, opportunities for scholarships, and alternate college level programs that are focused on job preparation. It has valuable information on colleges with a Christian worldview.

From The Washington Times Review of the book: “ College has simply become too expensive. What killed it is explained by the ‘Bennett Hypothesis’: College tuition will rise as long as the amount of money available through federal student aid continues to increase with little or no accountability’. We have created a subprime higher-education bubble and Mr. Bennett and Mr. Wilezol aim to let some of the air out of it”.

When approximately 50% of unemployed Americans* have attended college or are college graduates, the answer to “Is College Worth It?” might be found in Dr. Bennett’s book.
