Worthy textbook Mar 24, 2007
From Darwin To Design is ideally written for the college student to be able to easily grasp the issues of Biblical Christianity and evolution, both common points and contrasting points. I am so impressed with this work that I have chosen it to be one of two textbooks in my Biblical Creation class at Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO.
An Amazing, Fascinating Book Sep 2, 2006
This is an amazing, fascinating book, starting with the telling of Cagan's conversion from the ignorance (for this is what he shows such to be)of aimless atheism to fruitful faith in Christ and Christianity. The authors have been friends of the reviewer for years, but I never knew the details of Christopher Cagan 's conversion background (nor the accidental change of the Jewish family name from Kagan to Cagan) until I read this volume. The title could easily be "from atheistic evolution to faith in God, " for that is the story it really tells. Can science satisfy? Of course and this book proves it. In fact, as we read we mused, "No wonder the suicide rates - especially among young people - are at an all-time high!" The hopelessness and meaningless of life "according to the atheistic science" taught in our public schools is obvious. In any creation evolution controversy our own thoughts have always returned to the observation of David: "...I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well " (Psalm 139:14). The authors quote molecular biologist Michael Denton, writing from a secular viewpoint, as saying about a single cell:"...one cell resembles a huge automated factory, larger than a city, carrying out hundreds of different functions, "yet its complexity "is impossible to understand in terms of simple molecular motion and random or semi-random combinations." The amount of information it contains "is simply staggering, which points to an intelligent Designer. "The authors ask which is more difficult to believe: "...that the universe exists as it is because of an almighty and intelligent God who designed it, or that the universe with all its mathematical completion and faultlessness, and with all of its basic numbers perfectly set up on favor of life, came into being all by itself, with no cause or meaning or reason - not at the beginning, not now, and not ever? To deny God in this way, and accept a universe with no ultimate purpose, actually is much more difficult and less reasonable than to affirm God as the Creator and Designer of it. The authors also explain why many of the world's most brilliant minds were not so smart after all! And they also point to the hopelessness,humanly speaking, of this world system. But Cagan and Hymers don't just cry "the sky is falling," they offer the solution from the living, eternal Word of God and its key personality, the Lord Jesus Christ. This is a good book, one you will not only enjoy, but profit immensely from spiritually. From Darwin to Design is scholarly, well documented, and indexed. Dr. D. James Kennedy wrote the Foreword and Dr. Henry M. Morris penned preface.

Review of "From Darwin to Design" by Dr. John S. Waldrip
At the beginning of From Darwin to Design, the author says,
"My father was Jewish, but we did not go to synagogue. I didn't believe in the existence of God...I laughed at the Christians who tried to `witness' to me. I thought their religion was fanatical, strange, and dangerous."
Dr. C. L. Cagan had earned a bachelor's degree (summa cum laude), a master's degree and a Ph.D. in mathematics at UCLA. He had written guides in math and chemistry that were sold to students at UCLA for twenty years. But, as an atheist, he was "very unhappy and empty inside." Thus begins Dr. Cagan's fascinating account of his journey from atheism to faith in Christ. As a pastor, I give a copy of Dr. Cagan's book to every questioning student who visits our church. It is the best defense of biblical Christianity I have ever read. And I am not alone when I say that. Dr. Tim LaHaye calls Dr. Cagan's book,
"Most interesting and informative" - Dr. Tim LaHaye, best-selling author of the Left Behind series.
The late Dr. Henry M. Morris called it,
"A delight to read" - Dr. Henry M. Morris, founder of the Institute for Creation Research.
And Dr. D. James Kennedy said,
"A word of warning to those who may pick up this book by chance: you most likely will not be able to put it down." - Dr. D. James Kennedy, best-selling author and chancellor of Knox Theological Seminary.
Cagan's book is 169 pages long. The back jacket of the book says that he presents "absolute proof...there is a God!" His book has been endorsed by Dr. Bob Jones III, Dr. H. L. Wilmington of Liberty University and Dr. Clarence Sexton of Crown College, as well as Dr. Tim LaHaye, Dr. Henry M. Morris, Dr. D. James Kennedy, Dr. Neal Weaver of Louisiana Baptist University and Dr. Robert L. Sumner, editor of The Biblical Evangelist. Dr. Sumner said,
"This is a good book, one that you will not only enjoy, but profit immensely from spiritually. It bears our enthusiastic recommendation."
The back jacket of the book also says,
"Dr. Cagan presents surprising information that will convince you of the awesomeness of God. He makes Himself evident down to, and including, the minutest part of science and math. You will see the creative universe as never before! And find:
* Answers to the debate between science and evolution. * What to tell your children when they ask about science in school. * How nature and science both point to God. * Answers for those who think religion is outdated.
Here is what to tell people when they ask about the beginning of the world. Cagan reveals his findings, which will introduce you to the Master Creator as he met Him - through the precise beauty of science."
From Darwin to Design gives "the journey of a mathematics professor from atheism to faith." It is one of the best defenses of Christianity I have ever read and, as Dr. Henry M. Morris wrote shortly before he died,
"The entire book is easy and pleasant reading. One who is not scientifically minded will not be turned off..."
I strongly recommend From Darwin to Design by Dr. C. L. Cagan.
