Contributed Review: By Mark
Have you ever been asked any of the following questions?
- Did God really take six days to create the heavens and the earth?
- Where did Cain get his wife?
- How did the animals fit on Noah’s Ark?
- What happened to the dinosaurs?
The Answers Book could be the resource you are looking for. It is published by the Answers in Genesis (AIG) organisation, which promotes and publishes scientific research and evidence, which conforms to Scripture (particularly the book of Genesis).
The book is laid out in the form of twenty chapters dealing with twenty common questions that AIG speakers have been asked over a period of twenty-five years.
Each chapter is written in a plain and readable style with good, clear illustrations. It is aimed at the general reader with unnecessary technical words and arguments avoided for increased clarity. As well as aiding communication with the non-Christian, the Answers Book can be used as a general educational resource for teenage students or anyone else who has a general interest in true science.
Scripture is quoted regularly throughout the book, which is encouraging. To quote from the book:
“Scientific models come and go, ‘but the word of the Lord endures forever’ (1 Peter 1:25).”
Mark’s review is of the orginal version of this book.
The cover shown and link is to the newer revised edition.
