The following are recommended books, including short descriptions of each book. These books are recommended because they make the science understandable. They discuss scientific topics that can be very complex, in a way that is understandable for most people. And science shows, when looked at without bias, that evolution never happened and is, in fact, impossible.
- CONTESTED BONES - Christopher Rupe ans Dr. John Stanford - A thorough investigation, from primary sources, of the fossil evidence for human evolution. (369 pages)
- DINOSAUR CHALLENGES AND MYSTERIES - Michael J. Oard - How the Genesis flood makes sense of dinosaur evidence, including tracks, nests, eggs and scavenged bones. (174 pages)
The following books, while excellent on the topic of evolution, are written by scientists who do not necessarily fully believe the Bible. For example, they may not believe in a young earth and six day creation. Michael Behe, for example, believes the earth is billions of years old. Within his field of expertise, biochemistry, he is an expert. He follows the evidence wherever it leads and finds that it is obvious evolution is impossible. However, as is common in the scientific community, he relies on the "experts" in other fields, such as geology, who say the earth is billions of years old.
This is common (although not universal). Those who work in the field of biology, for example, see that evolution... based on their field of expertise... is impossible. So they assume the proof of evolution (including an old earth) can be found in other fields. Geologists see the evidence that supports a recent global flood, but since they "know" evolution is true based on what "experts" in other fields say, they assume there could not have been a global flood. And so it goes around in circles, with few willing to follow the evidence wherever it leads. The scientists who wrote the books listed below (and there are others) have followed the evidence in their field of expertise, seeking truth, and found the only possible conclusion supported by the evidence in their field, is that evolution is impossible.
- DARWIN DEVOLVES - Dr. Michael J. Behe - The truth of molecular biology shows evolution is impossible. (342 pages)
- DARWIN'S DOUBT - Stephen C. Meyer - The evidence that Darwin could not explain. (498 pages)
- THEISTIC EVOLUTION - Multiple Authors - A scientific, philosophical, and theological critique. (1005 pages)
- UNDENIABLE - Douglas Axe - Microbiology proves life is designed and evolution is impossible. (298 pages)
THE GOOD NEWS
Before you get the good news, you need to know the bad news. It's about you. God says:
All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. - Romans 3:23
Sin means disobeying God, aka breaking God's law. God is perfect and perfection is required to enter heaven. It's a standard none of us can achieve. We all fall short. For example, compare yourself with just one of the Ten Commandments. Have you ever told a lie?
All liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. - Revelation 21:8. Or what about:
Have you ever taken something that does not belong to you, no matter how small? Have you ever looked at another person with lust? In Matthew 5 Jesus said:
Everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.' Have you done that?
You have broken God's laws. You have sinned. There must be justice, and that means eternity in hell, the lake of fire, the second death. Unless...
Unless there was someone willing to pay that penalty on your behalf. Someone who will take on themselves the consequences you deserve. And there is. There is one person who can and will do that. That person is Jesus Christ. If you trust this is true (believe), and repent (turn away from disobeying God), Jesus' death is applied to your account and you are freed from the penalty of sin to be with God forever.
