This book focuses on Hugh Ross and his theory of "Progressive Creationism". Sarfati does a great job showing that the Bible does not allow for millions of years between days of creation. He does this with clarity and a great amount of scientific data. A very interesting read.

"Refuting Compromise" (Updated and Expanded) by Jonathan Sarfati is a comprehensive refutation of Hugh Ross' so-called 'progressive' creationist beliefs.

While I am certain this book is an excellent resource for some, I must admit that a majority of it was well over my head. I suspect that its intended audience was not the average layperson, but fellow scientists with lofty degrees.

I was very disapointed in the tone of this book, which was sometimes sarcastic and demeaning. It did provide a fair overview of young-earth creationist perspectives and the hermeneutics were well thought-out. Scientific explanations were weak (overuse of jargon and self-citing and a lack of acknowledgement of competing theories) and at leat one typo (4cm does not equal 12 inches) which made me second-guess all the other numerical calculations. On several points, this book seemed to be written to ...more

Dr Jonathan D. Sarfati is a renowned creationist, physical chemist, spectroscopist, and chess master. He is most famous for taking an uncompromising stance on the origins of the universe, the earth, and life, and defending Scripture in a straightforward manner against any attempt to "reconcile" it with "scientific data" that contradict it.
