Creation and Evolution: Why it matters what you believe

Colin GarnerSKU: CE0996 ISBN: 9781846250996



This booklet seeks to help awaken the church to accept the biblical account in Genesis, not out of sentiment, or by becoming unscientific, but because it is scientific and does explain the world as we see it in an entirely consistent way. It shows that only biblical creation makes any sense of Original Sin, Death, The Fall, and the Atoning Sacrifice of Jesus. As you will find out, it profoundly affects the way we can reach out to people in our evangelism. Why is the creation/evolution issue so important? And hasn't science disproved the biblical creation account anyway? The world's evolutionary view permeates virtually all society and secular science, and many people, even Christians, hold an evolutionary view almost by default. They reject the biblical creation account in Genesis as fact. In this booklet Colin Garner demonstrates that, as well as being inconsistent with biblical truth, evolutionary theory has serious fundamental scientific weaknesses. He highlights the reasons why Genesis, the first book of the Bible, is of such foundational importance to life today, in the hope that it will encourage us all to base our beliefs, our evangelism and our hopes on the whole Bible, including its vital foundational teaching on creation.

"a good read"

As I read through I found there was a good natural flow in looking at the whole issue & the implications of the Creation/Evolution debate. The author starts with the Bible, always the best place to start. He highlights that if we dismiss the first part of Genesis, the trustworthiness of the whole of the Bible is under question so what do we believe & what effect does that have on those we are evangelising to? The book starts from a scientific viewpoint & gives an overview on both evolution & creationism in the context of being theories. It also highlights that there is a clear body of science to support creation; it raises flaws in the evolutionary perspective from a scientific viewpoint, an area that is missed or skirted around by some Christian writers. A point that can be missed, but is raised in this booklet, is to look at the impact that an evolutionary perspective has on the way society views moral issues. A good read that gives an overview of the area and a great deal of useful information; there is a list of further reading to increase your knowledge. I would fully recommmend it to read & keep.
