Darwinian theories of the universe, although mostly rejected by evangelical Christians, have still found their way into creation theology. Evolutionist creation has watered down much of the Bible's teaching in order to reconcile with popular tenets of science. The whole controversy, it seems, gravitates around the age of the universe.

Dr. Kurt Wise uses solid biblical teachings and scientific confirmation to explain why a young universe creation is correct. Beginning with God and His Word as the standard, Wise demonstrates how the biblical witness teaches that the age of the universe is not as old as Darwinian theory would contend. He also shows how all issues raised by evolutionists can be answered not only by the Bible, but also by scientific data and research, nailing shut macroevolution's coffin.

“Genesis does have many of the characteristics common in Hebrew historical narrative.” (Page 44)

“There is nothing that God does that is not a consequence of His nature. The way things came to be, the order in which things came to be, the form things assumed at their origin, the pattern things assumed at their origin, and the timing of their origin—all these were consequences of Who God is.” (Page 6)

Praise for the Print Edition

I love the Word of God. . . Yet when I read what Kurt Wise has written, I love it even more. . . I am amazed at this brilliant man’s ability to speak to my heart and mind in such a perspicuous way!. . . this book causes its reader to stand in awe of God and assures him he can truly take God at His Word from Genesis 1:1 on—without apology or embarrassment in the face of those who believe otherwise.

—Kay Arthur, Author, Co-CEO, Precept Ministries International

    With there was more of this on Faith and Life, I see Biologos trying to sneak on here. It's hard to find content like this.

    I purchased this book for an undergraduate level class. I absolutely loved this book. The Logos platform offers so many tools to aid in study, as well. I recommend reading this book even if you aren't taking a class. Keep in mind that Wise presents a Young Earth Creationist argument while presuming that the reader is already a believer. If you find yourself demanding "empirical evidence" for creationism or intelligent design over evolutionism, then try "Signature in the Cell" by Stephen Miller.
