The content is interesting and does a better job than I expected when it comes to understanding both sides of the argument. The one drawback is that the author was my professor and speaks in a horrible monotone. As a result, I heard his voice as I read this book. *shivers* This book is unapologetically Creationist, but not blindly and ignorantly Creationist like many origin-of-life books by Christian authors.
I had to read this for a college class and found it interesting. I thought I would be bored reading this but actually enjoyed it. There were some passages that I became bogged down in simply because I'm not a science major or have a Doctorate in it so it isn't always written to "the masses". With that said, it did open my eyes to a lot I didn't understand and I did grasp most of the principles presented. Overall, it was a great read.
This book is a builds a great case for the scientific defense of a young earth creationist view! It reminds us that creation is a historical science and not an empirical one. As a result anyone who views evidence will start with certain assumptions and build a case from available evidence. If the assumptions are wrong the evidence is misinterpreted.
