Creation Facts of Life – Book Review

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Books and movies we like, Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

Dr. Gary Parker is one of my favorite creation authors and speakers, and I was much blessed to take several classes from him years ago at the Institute for Creation Research.  I always enjoyed his enthusiasm and his wonderful teaching style – taking complicated topics and explaining them in understandable terms – weaving together intricate details to create a fascinating “big picture” tapestry.  His unique blend of knowledge, logic, humor, humility, and “down-home” approach...

Book Review: Darwin’s Plantation

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Books and movies we like, Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

Was Darwin a racist?  Even though he was an abolitionist, most seem to agree that by today’s standards, he certainly held racist views.  You be the judge: The Origin of Species is subtitled The Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life. A summary of some of Darwin’s points from The Descent of Man include: Humans are divided into sub-species (known as the races) Blacks and Aborigines are sub-species between Apes and Caucasians Inferior races will be driven to...

Lessons from Babel

Posted on May 20, 2013 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

I have been reading Bodie Hodge’s new book, Tower of Babel: The Cultural History of Our Ancestors. The information Hodge presents is not only fascinating and enlightening, but it also got me thinking about what we can learn for our own lives and times from this long-ago event. First of all, we need to understand that the event described in Genesis 11 is historically true and accurate. Like the rest of Scripture, it is inspired by God and included in the Biblical record for...

Wager the Wild Land

Posted on Mar 2, 2012 in Books and movies we like, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

Years ago, I met Dave Harper, who would eventually become an AOI Board member. A few hours after meeting, we joined Dave and his wife Barb in a restaurant. After I offered a prayer for our lunch (which I didn’t realize until later had shaken him to the core), he riveted his attention on me and asked how I, as a geologist and a Christian, reconciled the teachings of Genesis with evolution. Dave had become a Christian a short while before, but was almost afraid to open...

New Book: God and Stephen Hawking: Whose Design Is It Anyway?

Posted on Sep 1, 2011 in Books and movies we like, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

Dr. John Lennox, a professor of mathematics from the University of Oxford, just released a short 96 page book which challenges Stephen Hawking and his book, The Grand Design. Hawking, the very popular and “prestigious” atheist scientist, claims that the laws of physics themselves brought the Universe into being, rather than God. Lennox’s book is titled God and Stephen Hawking: Whose Design Is It Anyway? A review of this book gave the following quotes from page 32: “What all...

This Biblically based book by Dr. Jonathan Henry is a great introduction to the universe that will capture the attention of any budding astronomer.  Every page has color pictures with text to beautifully illustrate your journey through the universe. Henry uses a logical progression starting with what is astronomy and the overwhelming immensity of the universe.  Before the galactic tour begins, he has two very interesting chapters: “Why did God Create the Heavenly Bodies?” ...

Parents! Students! You Must Read This Book!

Posted on Nov 20, 2005 in Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

“I Thought I was well prepared for college. I had attended a solid college prep high school and was a good student. I was well grounded in a Christian world view and knowledgeable about a host of other world views. I’d sunk my teeth into the basics of orthodox Christianity, the Christian classics, compassionate conservatism, and was good to go.  Turns out, I was wrong.” This book is essential battle gear!  Fish Out of Water, Surviving and Thriving as a...

How Blind is the Watchmaker? – Book Review

Posted on Apr 20, 2004 in Books and movies we like, Think & Believe Newsletter | 0 comments

When I started reading How Blind Is the Watchmaker, by Neil Broom, I was strangely reminded of a cartoon.  Although I can’t remember the source, it illustrates the all-too-frequent practice of modern science.  Words like “meaning,” and “purpose,” are covered up because they go against the prevailing notions of materialism – that we exist in a vast, meaningless, cosmic machine that is driven completely by chance. Ironically, to fabricate their story, scientists can’t escape...
