Defeating Darwinism by Opening Minds ($50), by Phillip Johnson

As this book's title indicates, understanding evolution is mainly a matter of opening minds, of freeing people to think about it as they would other important subjects. All it really takes is precise definitions and good thinking habits. The skills you'll develop in learning to understanding evolution will come in handy for a lot of other things too. Actually, you'll find out that they are the same skills that scientists like Carl Sagan have advocated all along. It's just that we are going to apply those skills to evolution, a subject that has for too long been protected from critical thinking by law and academic custom. -- the author

Edited by Ken Ham and co-written by ten leading apologetics speakers and authors, a few of the dozens of supposed contradictions include:

  • God warned Adam not to eat the forbidden fruit or he would die. But when Adam disobeyed and ate, he lived a full life.

Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions Volume 2 ($50), by Edited by Tim Chaffey, Ken Ham, and Bodie Hodge

Too often people focus on what seems to be contradictions or errors in the Bible, using them to create doubt in the minds of believers or act as stumbling blocks in trying to present the Gospel.

It is important to resolve these issues to reassure people that the Bible is inerrant. Discover over 40 powerful explanations proving the Bible is still accurate and without error for questions such as:

  • What is God's name in the Old Testament?
  • Is the earth immovably set on pillars or hanging on nothing?
  • Is all Scripture inspired by God, or is some of it the opinion of the writers of Scripture?
  • After His resurrection, did Jesus first appear to the eleven disciples on a mountain in Galilee or in Jerusalem behind closed doors?

Explosive and insightful Biblical evidence disproves the toughest of critics while bringing to light the indestructible power of God's Word. Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions Volume 2 accepts the critics' challenge, taking on some of the most difficult issues, helping to strengthen the faith of those who love God.

Excellent for both adults and teens.

Ken Ham once again takes the lead in pointing out the looming precipice that thousands of church leaders are rushing toward; a denial of the full authority and accuracy of the Bible from its very first verse.

He warned that compromise in Genesis would undermine Scriptural authority in the culture and erode confidence in the infallibility of God’s Word. Today, Christians increasingly doubt the Bible’s reliability. So then do those who are considering placing their faith in Jesus, the Creator.
