Defeating Darwinism by Opening Minds, IVP, Philip Johnson

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.

7 MEN: AND THE SECRET OF THEIR GREATNESS

7Men

7 MEN: AND THE SECRET OF THEIR GREATNESS by Eric Metaxas

The author has done us a great favor in giving a very fascinating and encouraging account of seven courageous men in short story form. He notes that each of them made hard choices and sacrifices to achieve a greater good. We can admire them, and we can learn from them. In seven chapters he tells us about George Washington, William Wilberforce, Eric Liddell (Chariots of Fire), Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jackie Robinson, Pope John Paul II, and Charles W. Colson. All were Christians. The experiences of each of these men are remarkable. The chapter on George Washington, alone, is worth the price of the book.

Here’s another recommendation and perspective on the book:
“What is true manhood? And what makes a man in our 21st century? These are vital questions that my friend Eric Metaxas helps us wrestle with in this great new book. In looking back to seven outstanding men of history, Eric helps us understand the essential elements of manhood in any age. This is a superb work- and I highly recommend it”. -The Hon. Gregory W. Slayton, author of the national bestseller, “Be a Better Dad Today”.

THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS

The Screwtape Letters  C . S. Lewis (Baker Harper/SF)

This book remains one of the best (imaginary) accounts of our personal individual struggles with evil, and of the designs of the enemy upon every person. Part of the genius of Lewis is that he deals with a subject that can be overbearing with a light touch. The Screwtape Letters aid the reader in better understand one’s self in the struggle to love and obey God.

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.

MERE CHRISTIANITY, C. S. Lewis

MERE CHRISTIANITY, C. S. Lewis (Harper Collins)

Lewis wrote more than a score of books, but if a person were to read only one, then Mere Christianity should be the book. Dr. Lewis states his purpose in the Preface, “Ever since I became a Christian, I have thought that best, perhaps the only, service I could do for my unbelieving neighbours was to explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times.” This classic book is surely one of the best ever to encourage belief in Christ.
