Knowing where we came from is extremely important. If natural processes made mankind over billions of purposeless years, then our lives mean nothing, and our ideas about reality are mere chemical interactions occurring inside our brain cells.
But if God made mankind supernaturally, then each day of our lives is packed with meaning. Our Creator set each of us on the stage of an unfolding history to play our parts according to His excellent and loving purposes. And if God made humans recently, like the Bible clearly indicates, then Scripture is error-free, worthy of our complete trust, and authored by a Creator whose Word settles the matter - whatever that matter might be.
Why should we study God's creation? In short, it's because that investigation will help answer some of our most significant questions about life, the world, its origin, its purpose, and ultimately why we are here.
"ICR's Guide to Creation Basics is elegantly produced and powerfully presented. The favorite dogmas of evolutionary theory are boldly examined and dismantled with clear logic and simple facts-starting with the obvious truth that God's handiwork is clearly visible everywhere .... This book sets forth a generous sampling of that evidence, making a vivid and compelling case for the biblical account of creation. This is an invaluable resource for students, teachers, or anyone confused by authoritative sounding skeptics." John MacArthur

Creation or evolution? This debate is one of the most vital issues of our time. It is extremely important for all people to know the truth about origins. The Christian especially needs to know the truth of the Genesis account of creation. After all, if the Bible is false on its very first page, then how can any rational person have confidence in what follows it?
Fortunately, you don't need a doctorate in science to understand the basic lines of scientific evidence that surround the creation-evolution controversy. Nor do you need a theological degree to understand the basic theology and moral implications of creation. Written and reviewed by experts, Creation Basics & Beyond offers a thorough, yet understandable, introduction to the basic questions involved in the creation-evolution debate.
Organized in short, readable chapters, this book demonstrates that not only does the scientific evidence not support evolution, it strongly confirms the biblical account of creation. Creation Basics & Beyond clearly shows that the Bible really is what it claims to be — the inspired Word of the living God.
