Defeating 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 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 LettersC . 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.
Especially for ages 14 – 18. Primarily in comic book style with some narrative interspersed. Makes the case for Intelligent design in an appealing and fair manner. Features a friendly conversation on evolution between two proffessors (Linda and Dr. Teller). A most significant book for young people.
Darwin’s Black BoxMichael 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.

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.
This is surely one of Charles Colson’s best! By telling the stories of people that he knows (including himself) he touches our lives and encourages us. In thirty chapters he depicts our spiritual struggles, failures, difficulties and triumphs. He powerfully illustrates that the good life derives from God, and that true happiness is found only in Jesus Christ.394 pages. Hard Cover, Retail Price $24.99
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.
TRANSFORMING CHURCH By Kevin G. Ford, David C. Cook
This book is brimming with expert analyses of commitments and cultures that will help churches brake free from the log jams that hinder them—to attain new life, joyful ministry, and increasing effectiveness. Not only are the principles of transformation enunciated, but the stories of several churches that have moved from stagnation to vibrancy are told. One key to positive change is to gain an understanding of the “code” of the church. Usually that code has grown over many years and become well rooted. If not understood, it will make the church seem inflexible and fixed on the past. Once understood, it provides a foundation for reevaluation, spiritual renewal, and growth. Once a church has a clear compelling mission and picture of the future, it can develop focused strategies to begin moving toward the vision.
