Reviews - What do customers think about Creation and Evolution 101: A Guide to Science and the Bible in Plain Language (Christianity 101®)?
Creation Science 101 is what it is Jun 26, 2009
I found this book to be interesting and informative. I really think the author's directed this toward a younger reader. There are several attempts at humor that I found to be a bit distracting along with serious study. I do applaud them for laying out the creation argument in a step by step easy to understand format. It is a good starting place for those who want to understand how science and the Bible, if not in concert, are not at odds in the evidence of beginning of all that is. I recommend it to anyone who wants to start down a path with an open mind about God and the Big Bang therory.
Illuminating and Instructive Jun 5, 2008
I have read virtually all of the 101 series by Bickel and Jantz and they are excellent. Not only are they very informative for the novice and unenlightened but they are chock full of references for other great books by brilliant authors. The reading is elementary and entirely provocative with amusing analogies tossed into the mix to add a little levity to a serious subject. I would recommend the entire series to anyone; even agnostics and darwinists. They too can use a breath of fresh air. Can't explain or don't understand the "Big Bang"? Read this issue, Creation and Evolution, and view the heavens with greater respect than ever before. Ralph Jinks (my real name)
Lies and pseudoscience Nov 16, 2007
This book is full of pseudoscience in the form of biblical 'creation science'. Its just Christian fundamentalist propaganda.
Perfect Intro to Creation & Evolution Apr 16, 2007
Accessible and informative, a great place for anyone to start in the debate. Solid biblical and scientific scholarship.
