In my Note from the Editor in the March issue of Reason & Revelation, I announced the publication of our newest book for children, Dinosaurs Unleashed. It now gives me a great deal of pleasure to be able to announce our newest book for adults, The Truth About Human Origins.
For the past year and a half, Dr. Brad Harrub (the Director of Scientific Information at Apologetics Press) and I have been working on a book that we believe has the potential to have a tremendous impact in the discussion of creation/evolution issues.
The Truth About Human Origins is our first-ever hardback book for adults. When you see it, we think you will be duly impressedwith both the professional appearance and the content.
The book has an attractive maroon pressboard cover with the title imprinted in gold. It also has a sewn spine, and a dustjacket that, in addition to being in full color, is beautifully embossed.
But as impressive as the appearance of the book is, we believe that the content of the volumes 500+ pages will impress you even more. In its ten chapters are in-depth discussions of what even evolutionists candidly admit are the most problematic areas of every naturalistic theory of origins. Included in the book are chapters on:
- The Record of the Rocks (the alleged
fossil evidence of human evolution)
- Molecular Evidence of Human Origins
- The Problem of Gender & Reproduction
- The Problem of Language
- The Problem of the Brain
- The Evolution of Consciousness
- The Problem of Skin Color & Blood Types
The buzz about the book had started making the rounds in the creationist community, even before the book arrived on our doorstep, due to the fact that we had extracted material from several chapters and submitted it for publication in peer-reviewed journals operated by various creationist organizations. [In fact, in the latest issue (volume 18, number 1, 2004) of TJ (the technical journal most respected by creationists worldwide), we had not one, but two articles published on the topics of Evolutionary Theories on Gender and Sexual Reproduction and The Origin of Gender and Sexual Reproduction. Other articles are due to be published shortly.]
As soon as we received the book from our printer, we immediately sent review copies to numerous creationist organizations around the world). Plus, we sent out a barrage of e-mails to every creationist (or creationist organization) for which we could locate an address, alerting them to the books availability.
From the responses we are receiving, I believe it is fair to say that there is no other book on the market written by creationists that can match The Truth About Human Origins in scope of content or breadth of research. It tackles topics that are the admitted Achilles heel of evolutionary theory, and that undoubtedly represent the most difficult hurdles to overcome in all materialistic theories of origins. Several professors already have requested review copies for possible use in their university classrooms.
But please, do not take my word for all of this. Order a copy of the book and see for yourself if it isnt the most comprehensive discussion of these types of issuesfrom a creationist point of viewthat youve ever seen. The book contains an extensive bibliography, plus exhaustive subject and name indexes. And, in keeping with our policy of making all of our materials available at as low a cost as possible, the 500-page book is only $17.95 ($3.05 shipping). Call us toll free at 800/234-8558 to order a copy.
