Item description for Search for the Truth: Changing the World with the Evidence for Creation by Bruce Malone...
Overview Search for the Truth is the fascinating account of what happens when short, well-written articles on the scientific evidence for creation are placed in public newspapers. Over 80 provocative and logical one-page articles, on all aspects of science and creation, are included in this book. In addition, permission is given to re-use and reprint the materials in local newspapers and newsletters. The book is extensively illustrated with world class editorial cartoons and includes many examples of the response to be expected when the evidence for creation is presented. In addition, the book reveals the interconnection between subjects as diverse as the existence of absolute truth, the Christian foundation of America, and the inherent value of human life.
Publishers Description Search for the Truth is a compilation of one page evidences supporting Biblical creation. Originally written for a public newspaper, each page covers a different aspect of the evidence for creation. The articles have been used in over a dozen newspapers since the original publication and always create a firestorm of controversy as those wishing to explain everything by only natural causes attempt to discredit the straightforward evidence for creation. The book is broken into six major sections - the evidence for creation from biological sciences, geological sciences, physics, followed by discussions of the effect creation has on subjects as diverse as absolute truth, education, and the value of life. Each page also features a pull quote, relevant illustration or provocative editorial carton by Wayne Stayskal or Chuck Asay. Both major newspaper editorial cartoonists are strong Christians who granted permission for use of their illustrations for this book. Between the individual sections the book weaves the story of how the book came about and describes the controversy created by the public exposure of the evidence for creation. Permission is granted for use of any material within the book for use by others for non-profit uses. The book was originally published in 2001 but was extensively updated and re-written in 2006 with over 20% new material added. Each book comes with permission to use any of the material for non-profit educational uses.

Impacting with Truth Aug 13, 2005
This book by definition: An aiming arrow that pierces through the evolutionary smog by presenting truth--straight up with interesting and informative articles. Search for the Truth contains about 80 articles pertinent to the ongoing debate regarding our origins--topics in biochemistry, biology, geology, anthropology, palentology, physics and the relevance of creation. It's all there--with an "ology" for everyone.
Mr. Malone's style of writing simply presents poignant facts designed to get the reader to literally "search for the truth". He has housed his extensive research under one cover for the purpose of other people reprinting the articles in their own community newspapers. The articles are one-pagers with an appropriate illustration, and his footnotes qualify his resources.
Because the origins issue took a front seat in our community, a core group was formed with the resolve to make a difference. We presented Search for the Truth articles every week for six months in our local newspaper. Our job was made easy with ready-to-go articles from Search. The result? The reward of impacting our community with truth that tips the balance toward creation. But you can decide that for yourself once you peruse its pages.
A common response I get after sharing the book is "Where can I get one?" Start with a copy for yourself . . . and then get copies into the hands of your friends. You, too, can make a difference by heralding the truth in your community.
Excellent treatment of mistaken premise May 3, 2004
Bruce Malone has assembled a helpful, highly readable book. I say "assembled" because the book is a compilation of newspaper articles. I say "helpful" because the book's audience will be helped by these ways to make creationism seem credible to many wonderful people of all ages as explanations of life's origins. The related problem is that the assumptions and methods of thinking are not convincing to mature people well informed by today's standards. Personally, I wish that creationism were valid because (a) I was raised to believe it, and (b) it projects a sense of benevolent purpose and meaning onto life.
The problem, however, is that just as life in all its forms isn't clearly understandable without evolution, evolution isn't clearly understandable with creationism or "intelligent design" as proffered explanations because evolution, whether we like it or not, has proceeded and proceeds in an unguided way. In short, the "evidence for creation" is not convincing to the most competent scientists.
The associated problem is that we as humans have not yet developed a readily accessible means of educating children at large, and managing social groups at large, without some form of creationist model that provides the sense of direction, meaning and purpose that most people emotionally crave. And, in the meantime, books such as this need to be written in order to shore up the needed educational efforts, which should in no way be disparaged.
Great summary book for the EVIDENCE of creation vs evolution Aug 26, 2002
This is a wonderful book with many summaries of the evidence and the misuse of evidence concerning the debate of creation and evolution. I have been an electrical engineer for almost 20 years and was taught and believed that we are all here as a result of some cosmic roll of the dice. Since that time I have read several good books like "Darwin's Black Box", "Darwin on Trial" and "Genesis and the Big Bang". I have also heard other science oriented persons give lectures on why evolution has actually been proven false by the very evidence that is being used to promote it. I found this book, "Search for the Truth" to be a wonderful summary of this information. Its overview style, with short one page understandable articles, makes it a great place to start in understanding the world around us. It also provides enough information to get anyone who is technically inclined and really wants to find the truth pointed in the right direction. I highly recommend this book!
a strong overview Jul 22, 2002
I was delighted to read this excellent book. It is aimed at the popular market, providing a strong overview of many aspects of the creation/evolution debate.
You will notice that when proponents of evolution confront creationism, all they can do is offer insults. Even socalled clever scientists like Richard Dawkins do this. In writing for the ordinary layman, Malone provides argument after sound argument for his case.
As a former Head of Science in a British state school, I thoroughly recommend this work.
Search for the Truth Apr 15, 2002
Excellent book for those searching for truth. I've read it twice and found it very well written and very thorough. I agree with one reader that the author Mr. Malone has put to words that which I have always held in my heart...to be the truths of God's Word. I highly recommend religious and non religious people to read it. It's very thought provoking and enlightening. It will encourage you and give you pause to ponder profound truths that may change your life.
