More About Tim Chaffey & Jason Lisle
Tim Chaffey is a writer and editor with Answers in Genesis. He has spent five years as a pastor and associate pastor, in which he taught youth ministry, adult Sunday School, and a weekly theology class in addition to regular preaching duties. He has also taught high school Bible and science classes for six years. Tim earned a Th.M. in Church History and Theology from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary in May 2011, after successfully defending his thesis on "The Sons of God and the Nephilim" (available on Kindle). In 2008, he earned a Master of Divinity degree (summa cum laude) specializing in Apologetics and Theology.
Tim also holds a Master of Arts and a Bachelor of Science in Biblical and Theological Studies. He is the founder and director of Midwest Apologetics, a ministry dedicated to defending the word of God from the beginning to the end. Tim specializes in the creation v. evolution controversy (and the corresponding age of the earth battle). He is especially interested in the theological nature of the debate. This interest led to the publishing of his first book, Old-Earth Creationism on Trial: The Verdict Is In (co-authored with Jason Lisle, Ph.D. in Astrophysics).
Tim is also a cancer survivor. He was diagnosed with Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia in July 2006. He has been in full remission since September 2006.

Most recently he served as co-editor of the new Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions Volume 2 with Ken Ham and Bodie Hodge.

Best book on Biblical Creationism Jul 9, 2008
I read the draft for Tim Chaffey's portion of the book about two years ago. Even then I thought it was the best book on creationism from a Biblical perspective that I have ever read. This is KEY: Tim puts Old Earth Creationism on trial from a Biblical perspective. (Dr. Lisle adds the scientific portion of the argument.) You do not need to be a theologian or a scientist to understand and benefit greatly from this book.
It is shocking to me how old earth creationists (OEC) hold to an inerrant, infallible, verbally inspired Bible, but then get all wishy-washy when dealing with the creation accounts in Genesis. Tim graciously and effectively demonstrates the weakness of the OEC interpretation.
If you are a young earth creationist, you will applaud this book. If you are an OEC, I think an honest reading will surprise you. Either way, your confidence in the reliability of Scripture will be strengthened. (Disclaimer: I am a personal friend of Tim Chaffey and have appreciated his ministry through Midwest Apologetics.)
