Overview

The fierce debate between proponents of creationism and evolutionism addresses the most fundamental questions of existence: What is life and how did life arise? What makes us human? Do we exist by chance, or do we fulfill a divine purpose? The authors of the Day One Creation and Science Collection contribute well-reasoned and thoughtful perspectives to the debate, drawing from their expertise in the fields of philosophy, science, and medicine. They allow antagonists to speak for themselves, yet offer reasoned counter-arguments in easy-to-understand language.

This collection re-examines the evidence and reasserts biblical and rational truth. The authors engage evolutionary thought, and offer possible ways in which science and faith can interact. They argue that evolution is incompatible with Scripture, that the theory of evolution assumes the falsity of Christian faith and doctrine, and that naturalism itself is scientifically incorrect. They contrast evolutionary theory—which, they say, diminishes scriptural authority and limits divine intentionality—with a theory of Design, by reexamining not only the book of Genesis, but also scientific evidence. All of creation has its origins in God, and the meaning of life is derived from divine purpose.

This collection includes discussion questions and study guides, along with helpful diagrams and illustrations to enhance your study and engage your mind. Complex scientific theory and difficult philosophy are clearly presented in easy-to-understand language, making these books ideal for teachers and students, for anyone seeking to determine the relationship between science and faith, and for individuals wrestling with the fundamental questions of existence.

On Giant's Shoulders: Studies in Christian Apologetics

  • Author: Edgar Powell
  • Publisher: Day One Publications
  • Publication Date: 1999
  • Pages: 280

Are Christians mindless enthusiasts who need religion as a form of security in an uncertain life? Far from it! It takes courage and conviction to stand up for what you believe is right. This book examines basic questions, and provides honest answers. It encourages you to go deeper into questions that you may have taken for granted.

The topics covered in this book show how God’s Word is reliable and relevant to our daily needs and problems. Today, people have questions about God and his existence. In this information age, the Christian answer is one of the most intellectually satisfying solutions. The Bible’s message is simple, but profound, and deals with the mystery of life itself. You will find references to resources and materials that will strengthen your faith and keep you up-to-date.

A splendid overview of contemporary apologetic challenges.

The Origin of Man: The Image of an Ape or the Image of God?

  • Author: Stuart Burgess
  • Publisher: Day One Publications
  • Publication Date: 2004
  • Pages: 192

Have humans descended from apes, or was man specially created? Do humans have unique characteristics and abilities that set them apart from all the animals? The answers to these crucial questions determine whether man is just an animal or a special spiritual being. This book shows that there is overwhelming evidence that man has a Creator. The book contains many diagrams and includes explanations of:

  • Similarities between humans and apes,
  • Unique characteristics and abilities of humans,
  • Unique beauty of humans,
  • Archaeological and fossil evidence,
  • The importance and relevance of the origins debate.
How God made man, by what process, we do not know. We do know it was not by chance. This tour de force instills reverence and great admiration for God’s creation. It is a thought-provoking and powerfully argued book.

Design and Origin of Birds

  • Author: Philip Snow
  • Publisher: Day One Publications
  • Publication Date: 2006
  • Pages: 240

Birds are among the world's most beautiful and beloved creations, so it is unsurprising that they have been so widely studied. This book closely examines their aerial lifestyle and unique, warm-blooded design—often so different from the cold-blooded dinosaurs that they are claimed to have evolved from. They often precede dinosaurs in the fossil record, and their miraculous genetics, as ours, speaks of special Creation—not random, chance chemical soups and endless genetic mistakes. They have been carved and painted since earliest times on rocks and temples, and they are associated with pyramids and religions, art and literature, sport and farming, war and peace, and even heaven and hell.

Philip Snow has produced a unique book which expertly describes and illustrates the design, life and beauty of birds.

—Stuart Burgess, Professor of Design and Nature, Bristol University

Philip Snow is a wildlife and landscape painter, illustrator, and writer. His work appears in many publications and galleries, and he has illustrated or contributed work to over sixty books and many magazines, prints, cards, calendars, reserve guides, and decorated maps.

Truth, Lies and Science Education

  • Author: Paul Taylor
  • Publisher: Day One Publications
  • Publication Date: 2007
  • Pages: 160

Most people are totally unaware of what actually goes on in the teaching environment in the classroom. Parents and grandparents talk with their children and grandchildren about what they are taught, but the children are unable to explain the philosophical ideologies behind the teaching. In this carefully researched book, Paul Taylor powerfully and devastatingly brings to light the underlying thinking that is the basis for so much of what is taught in modern schools.

Students spend more time with their teachers/professors than they do with their parents in learning to understand what life is all about. As a result, their formalized education has a great impact on their worldview. Truth, Lies and Science Education is a valiant attempt to tackle this issue head on to engage the education system and parents in understanding the realities of what is being taught to children and how they are being conformed to a secular way of thinking about every aspect of reality.

—Ken Ham, president of Answers in Genesis, USA

Paul Taylor spent seventeen years teaching science, and gained a masters degree in science education at Cardiff University. He became a Christian in his late teens. His first book, Just Six Days, arranged contemporary creationist thinking into biblical order as a commentary of Genesis 1–11. Paul joined Answers in Genesis (UK/Europe) in August 2005 as a writer and speaker. He is a regular contributor to the Answers in Genesis website and Answers Magazine and is busy writing numerous articles, many of which are published in various Christian magazines. Paul is also an engaging speaker, and has made several television and radio appearances, debating leading evolutionists. A single parent, Paul looks after his three teenage children, Gemma, Adam and Jack, and his elderly mother.

An Interview with C.H. Spurgeon: C. H. Spurgeon on Creation and Evolution

  • Author: David Harding
  • Publisher: Day One Publications
  • Publication Date: 2006
  • Pages: 128

C. H. Spurgeon, who is known to be theologically robust about the verbal inspiration, infallibility, perspicuity, and preservation of the text of the Bible, made many forthright statements about Darwinism, and his sermons and writings are liberally sprinkled with references to the subject. In this virtual interview, David Harding takes us through his general thoughts on the matter, on science and the Bible, and then his more specific attitudes to science. This volume contains both advice to young people and comments for preachers. What of those who disagree? He had a few words for them too! The appendix explores Spurgeon's attitude to his own fallibility and is relevant in view of his opinions and judgments about when the world was made.

A masterpiece of writing.

—Professor Andy McIntosh, University of Leeds

A lucid, forceful, definitive, biblical answer to the theory of evolution in Spurgeon's own words... invaluable for both its historic significance and its timeless insight.

—Phil Johnson, Grace to You

Six-Day Creation: Does it Matter What You Believe?

  • Author: Robert Gurney
  • Publisher: Day One Publications
  • Publication Date: 2007
  • Pages: 64

Ever since long-age geology and the theory of evolution became established in the nineteenth century, Christians have been divided over how to respond to the secular view of origins. Among evangelicals, there are two main positions. One is to accept the secular view in whole or in part, and to reinterpret the Bible to harmonize it with that view. The other is to reject the secular view, believing it to be incompatible with the Bible and contrary to the evidence. Are both these positions equally valid, or is one right and the other wrong? And does it really matter? This booklet examines some of the biblical, scientific and historical issues, and helps readers understand the debate and to make an informed choice.

The author has provided a valuable introduction to the matters of greatest importance in this crucial debate, upon which, I believe, hinges the very survival of a Christian witness in many once-Christian nations. Heartily recommended.

—Don Batten, senior writer, researcher, and lecturer, Creation Ministries International, Brisbane, Australia

Robert Gurney was born in Burma to missionary parents. After qualifying in medicine at Bristol University, he worked in a hospital in Nazareth, Israel, as a medical missionary in Tanzania and Kenya, and as a general practitioner in Devon before his retirement.

Genesis for Today: The Relevance of the Creation/Evolution Debate to Today's Society

  • Author: Andy McIntosh
  • Publisher: Day One Publications
  • Publication Date: 2006
  • Pages: 2006

Professor McIntosh is a scientist who sees no contradiction between science and the events of creation in the book of Genesis. He believes that all Christian doctrine, directly or indirectly, has its basis in the literal events of the first eleven chapters of the Bible, and that these foundations of the faith have been undermined in the church by the fallible theories of evolution.

This book argues for the complete accuracy of Genesis and the Bible. All fundamental Christian doctrine is found in Genesis 1–11. It provides key support in the creation/evolution debate and is written in such a way that non-scientists can understand it easily. The burden of Professor McIntosh is that creation is no periphery issue. True revival of Christianity in the decadent West today will never be known unless we get back to believing God’s Word from the very beginning.

I appreciate Andy McIntosh’s obvious love for the Bible and his conviction that God’s Word will always triumph over every falsehood. He shows in simple language why many of the evolutionists’ claims are demonstrably false. In the process, he allows the Word of God to speak plainly for itself. For those who have eyes to see, here is ample proof that God’s revealed truth is as trustworthy as ever—and infinitely more certain than every human speculation.

John MacArthur, Pastor-Teacher, Grace Community Church, California

Andy McIntosh is professor of thermodynamics and combustion theory at the University of Leeds. He has had a career spanning thirty years of conducting scientific research in mathematics, combustion, and aeronautics both in academic and government establishments.
