Five years ago, in my September 1999 “Note From the Editor,” I announced the first three volumes in what was at the time our brand new “Scripture and Science” book series. One month later, in the October issue of Reason &Revelation, I announced four additional volumes. Since that time, we have added three more, making a grand total thus far of ten different books.
From its very inception, the series has been one of our most popular offerings. The books deal with a wide range of subjects (such as the inspiration of the Bible, God’s existence, the scientific evidence supporting Creation, the age of the Earth, the various causes of unbelief, the global Flood of Noah, the Christian and medical ethics, etc.). They cover their topics quite thoroughly, and also are well documented. Yet each one is easy to read, and is affordable (averaging around $4.95). As such, the books make admirable additions to personal libraries, as well as great gifts for others.
Whenever we issue a new book in the series, we intentionally order a small press run. That way, when our stock is depleted, it provides us with an opportunity to revise (and often completely rewrite!) the book, thereby keeping each volume current and up to date. Several books in the series have gone through two, three, or even four printings/revisions/rewrites. As a result, they have remained among our best-selling books.
In this month’s “Note from the Editor,” I am pleased to announce the new editions of the two most popular books in the series—The Case for the Existence of God and The Scientific Case for Creation. These are not mere revisions; both books have been completely rewritten from start to finish. During the rewriting process, I incorporated entirely new sections, along with the latest, most up-to-date material available on the subject matter being discussed.
I believe you will find the new editions to be vast improvements over their predecessors. For example, the old edition of The Case for the Existence of God was 80 pages long; the new edition is 200 pages in length. It is divided into five chapters that cover, among other things, the cosmological argument (cause and effect), the teleological argument (design), the anthropological argument (morality), and so on.
The Scientific Case for Creation (which already had gone through three previous revisions) also is completely new. The old (2002) edition was 200 pages long; the 2004 edition is 280 pages, and includes all new material in a number of different areas (including the material on the Big Bang that first appeared in the May, June, and July 2003 issues of R&R). It also contains updated material on the design of the genetic code, cellular construction and function, etc. [The Scientific Case for Creation contains the information I present in the Friday evening lecture of my weekend seminar, “Science & Nature: Two Votes for God,” plus a great deal of additional material, including quotations from a number of prominent evolutionists who openly admit the sad state of evolutionary theory, and its inability to answer even the most fundamental questions relating to how life began, what makes life change, etc.]
Although the number of pages in each of these books has increased significantly, the price has not. The cost for each of these new volumes is only $5.95 (just $1 more than the shorter editions of several years earlier). I think when you see them, and digest their contents, you’ll agree that they definitely are worth the price. Call us toll free at 800/234-8558 to order with a credit card. Or, order by mail by sending a personal check (+$2.00 shipping). You also might want to inquire about the other 8 books in the set, all of which are currently available.
