James Connor discovers an alien spacecraft buried along with the remains of early human ancestors, which sets in motion a crisis of human beliefs. The conflict between religion and science -- a timeless debate -- fuels the story, as humans explore the greatest questions of time: who are we, where did we come from, and what is mankind's role in the universe? Connor's actions make him an unsuspecting pawn in an Evolution involving our earliest ancestors, ancient aliens, and the future of us all. [close]

Biology professor Andy Waite is finally beginning to pick up the pieces years after a drunk driver killed his wife. Between finishing his research and taking care of his young daughters, he has reasons to get through the day, and most days he does without falling apart. That is, until a young female student enters his life and turns it upside down. Melissa Potter is a passionate evangelist hoping to write the definitive paper about Creationism. She makes Andy’s Darwinian certainty—and his grief—a personal challenge. As she chips away at his fervent atheism, he begins to fully realize the emptiness that he’s been living with for too long.
But when Andy’s relationship with Melissa becomes romantic, the boundaries he’s worked so hard to maintain— personally and professionally—blur. And soon it’s unclear what kind of deliverance he needs.
The Explanation for Everything explores humankind’s insatiable search for meaning, the risks and rewards of faith, and the salvation that love can offer us all. [close]

Science and Religion: Reconciling the Conflicts is a result of more than 40 years of spare-time study on the subject. Truth is truth--from whatever source, however sorting it out from the huge quantity of material bombarding us daily is a formidable task.
This book takes a rather literal approach to the Bible, discusses some of the weaknesses in conflicting scientific theory, and shares summary information about other scientific theories which are more consistent with a literal reading of the scriptures. [close]
