Are human beings a mere product of the cosmos with no future in eternity? Or are we infinitely more valuable than any other creatures on earth? Can we put a price tag on human life? How should we treat marginal members of society: those whiling away empty days in nursing homes, the terminally ill, the unborn child?
Norman Geisler believes that many of us have become confused about these vital issues. In Knowing the Truth about Creation, he delves into the biblical, philosophical, and scientific case for the Christian view of creation. The result is a fascinating look at creation and the Creator.
Dr. Elton Trueblood was right when he said, 'If God is the God of the altar only and not the God of the laboratory also, he is not worthy of our worship.' Norman Geisler proclaims the Lord of the altar and of the laboratory. This book is a great blend of the biblical, philosophical, and practical approaches so needed in our scientific age.
—D. James Kennedy, author of Why I Believe
A competent, up-to-date discussion of creation . . . interesting, clearly written, and faithful to Scripture. I recommend it without reservation.
—Ronald Nash, Professor of Philosophy, Western Kentucky University
A sophisticated, balanced treatment of a subject fundamental to the Christian faith but which many Christians prefer to avoid.
—James Hitchcock, author of What is Secular Humanism?
