Great idea for a book. Imagine The Screwtape Letters combined with Michael Behe's Darwin's Black Box. It's witty, interesting, and even informative. This book has a permanent home on my bookshelf.

My husband and I read this when it was originally released. It's the only book I've read of James Scott Bell's yet because of it I remember his name.
