First published as a series of articles in 1976, then in magazine format, this work has been completely revised and updated with new diagrams incorporating current information. Always intended to be understandable to the general reader, this book covers the reasons why a conservative young-earth biblical view of the creation of our world fits the evidence. It would be easily read by teenage children but has enough information to satisfy an enquiring adult.
Fossil evidence is examined, along with genetics and the age of the earth. There is an emphasis on the historical reasons for how Darwinian evolution has come to be so widely accepted despite much contrary evidence. The book includes a useful biography which also lists helpful websites.
