Evolution/Creation Resource List

  1. Behe, Michael, J., Darwin's Black Box, The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution, The Free Press, 1996. Behe is Associate Professor of Biochemistry at Lehigh University. Suitable for the scientist or non-scientist, this book will challenge the staunchest evolutionist. See Behe's web page at Michael Behe.
  2. Denton, Michael, Evolution: A Theory in Crisis, Adler & Adler, 1986. Denton, a physician and molecular biologist, provides a stinging intellectual attack on evolution. This book is one of the classics on the topic.
  3. Gish, Duane T., Ph.D., Creation Scientists Answer Their Critics, Institute for Creation Research, 1993. This book was written primarily for the scientific community. Their newsletter is a good way to keep current on this topic (phone: 619-448-0900). Web site: www.icr.org.
  4. Ham, Kenneth A., The Lie: Evolution, Master Books, 1997. While most of the other books on this list are written from a strictly scientific point of view, this book is written from the point of view of the biblical book of Genesis. Web site: www.AnswersInGenesis.org.
  5. Johnson, Phillip E., Darwin on Trial, InterVarsity Press, 1993. Johnson is a graduate of Harvard and the University of Chicago, and is a professor of law at the University of California at Berkeley. This book is a landmark book. It is a lesson in logic that has rocked the evolutionary establishment. See Johnson's web page www.origins.org.
  6. Johnson, Phillip E., Defeating Darwinism by Opening Minds, InterVarsity Press, 1997. Johnson, in this book, is concerned with the question of how to determine truth, whether it be in science, religion, or other endeavors.
  7. Johnson, Phillip, Reason in the Balance, The Case Against NATURALISM in Science, Law & Education, InterVarsity Press, 1995. In this book, Johnson discusses the startling implications for society resulting from the predominant view of origins.
  8. Kennedy, D. James, Why I Believe, Word Publishing, 1980. Kennedy is a Christian theologian who uses reason and evidence to defend Christianity. This book is an excellent summary of several essential doctrines of the Christian faith.
  9. Lubenow, Marvin L., Bones of Contention, A Creationist Assessment of Human Fossils, Baker Book House, 1992. Considered the most complete and accurate critique of the fossils of the so-called ape-men, this book demolishes the myth of human evolution. Since evolution is often thought of in terms of "ape-men," this book is a good place to begin reading.
  10. Moore, David T., Five Lies of the Century, Tyndale House Publishers, 1995. This is a highly recommended book. It covers evolution, but much more as well to challenge one's pre-conceived politically correct notions. The hypothesis given about the prehistoric earth and the biblical flood is fascinating (Chapter 11). It is well suited for readers of any background.
  11. Moreland, J. P., editor, The Creation Hypothesis, Scientific Evidence for an Intelligent Designer, InterVarsity Press, 1994. This book is a collection of essays, largely concerned with the philosophy of science. While beyond the interest of most readers, it is included on this list for those scientists and members of academia who want to begin to explore concepts that can be expected to dominate philosophical thought in the 21st century.
  12. Morris, John D., Ph.D., The Young Earth, Creation-Life Publishers, Inc., Master Books Division, 1994. Geologist Morris uses a popularized format for this interesting topic.
  13. "Mount St. Helens, Explosive Evidence for Catastrophe," Institute for Creation Research, P.O. Box 2667, El Cajon, CA 92021. This is a wonderful video, suitable for classrooms, church groups, or anyone interested in creation. Other videos are available from the Institute.
  14. Parker, Gary, Creation Facts of Life, Master Books, 1994. Parker has a doctorate in biology, with a cognate in geology (paleontology). A former evolutionist, Parker spent three years re-examining the evidence before giving up his "deep-seated belief in evolution" and concluded, like thousands of other scientists in recent times, that the biblical framework is the more logical inference from our scientific observations. Excellent for high school classes.
  15. Spetner, Lee, Not By Chance! Shattering the Modern Theory of Evolution, The Judaica Press, Inc., 1997. A Jewish physicist, Dr. Spetner's book uses primarily probability science and concepts in microbiology to demonstrate that the neo-Darwinian theory cannot be true.
