Item description for The Genesis of Germs: The Origin of Diseases & the Coming Plagues by Alan L. Gillen...

Overview
It seems that a new and more terrible disease is touted on the news almost daily. The spread of these scary diseases from avian flu to SARS to AIDS is a cause for concern and leads to questions, such as: Where did all these germs come from, and how do they fit into a biblical world view? What kind of function did these microbes have before the Fall? Does antibiotic resistance in bacteria prove evolution? How can something so small have such a huge, deadly impact on the world around us?

Reviews - What do customers think about The Genesis of Germs?

Informative and Empirical  Dec 5, 2008
"The Genesis of Germs" is a very informative book that kept me absorbed till the end. The book has been written as a textbook which is targeted mainly at the high school age, but adults of all ages will find it quite enlightening on all aspects of germs and bacteria.

This book discusses every aspect of germs, bacteria, viruses and pathogens. The structure, function and reproduction of all micro-organisms are discussed so the reader gets a very good idea about how the microscopic world operates. From the lifecycle of diseases such as HIV/AIDS and Malaria to the function of bacteria in the global ecosystem, "The Genesis of Germs" is an all encompassing book.
The book was written for a creationist audience in mind, so people of a different `persuasion' will find some aspects a little unusual. The main theme is aimed at showing the reader that harmful germs and bacteria weren't part of Gods original creation, but they have degenerated from helpful organisms into parasitic organisms that can only survive by harming the host.
Some chapters include; Beneficial Bacteria, Bacteria in a Fallen World, Fungi, the Immune System, the Origin of Disease: a Creation Perspective.

This is a highly informative book that will please adults of any age that have a desire to learn about the microbial world.

Four Stars
 
Interesting book  May 25, 2008
This is a very interesting book for those who have a scientific leaning. Another example of Gods creation and the curse which he placed on the earth after sin. Of course we all eagerly await the times to come when the lion shall lie down with the lamb.
