|Tornado in a Junkyard The Relentless Myth of Darwinism
By James Perloff
This work by James Perloff attacks the myth of Darwinism from several angles. With evidence, or rather lack thereof, from the fossil record, Perloff demonstrates that there is no fossil support for evolution, as known by Darwin himself. Other arguments include why mutations cannot serve as the building block of evolution, why chance could not create even one of thousands of essential proteins for life, why radiometric dating techniques are not indisputable methods, and more. This work will serve as a resource for those interested in apologetics, and particularly creation versus evolution.

|How Do We Know the Bible Is True? Volume 1
By Edited by Ken Ham & Bodie Hodge
Have you ever been asked a question that makes you doubt your Christian faith? Something that makes you consider whether or not the Bible is true? Today there are untold voices calling for our attention, and so many of these mock or belittle our faith. From coworkers, those in the media, and even some Christians, the tone has become one of reproach, disparaging the character of God and undermining the authority of the Bible. Here is a book to help bring clarity in a world filled with increasingly vague notions of truth!
By Joe Coffey
Street-level apologetics for everyday Christians. Because faith in Jesus makes sense. And you don’t need an advanced degree to understand why. This book was written for two reasons. First, too many people think believing in Christianity means blind faith, against all evidence, the way a child believes in Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy. Nothing could be further from the truth. Second, every few years a new book intended to undermine Christianity becomes a best seller and shakes the faith of many.
Yet the arguments in these books are rarely compelling. Jesus likened faith in God to a house built on a foundation. If built on sand, storms of doubt will tear the house apart. But if we build on a solid foundation, we will stand. In these pages, Joe Coffey inspects our foundation – so we can know why we believe, and so we can speak of our faith to others with greater confidence and clarity. The conclusion? The Christian faith is built on a tremendous amount of credible evidence. You don’t need to be a scientist, an historian, an archeologist, or a philosopher to understand why belief in Jesus makes perfect sense.
Think of the last time an unbeliever asked you a seemingly unanswerable question as a way of supporting their unbelief. Did you feel thwarted in your attempt to “give an account for the hope that is in you”? Smooth Stones answers six of the toughest of these questions:
1. How do you know God exists?
Joe Coffey writes in a style that is clear, winsome, and compelling. Smooth Stones will equip you with answers to some of the toughest apologetics questions a Christian can face. There is plenty of evidence to support the claims of Christianity. Smooth Stones puts much of that evidence at your fingertips and offers practical guidelines for how to unpack it in ways that are “gentle and reverent.”
|The Will of God: Answering the Hard Questions
By James C. Howell
How are we to know “the will of God?” In this honest discussion, veteran pastor and theologian James C. Howell considers a number of issues relating to God’s will, how it is known, how it is done, and how we respond when bad things happen and we feel God is absent or has turned away from us. In this sensitive presentation, Howell explores these questions and provides ways of recognizing the true things to which we can hold in the midst of hard times.
Howell proceeds simply and practically to consider personal understandings of God, God’s will for our lives, and ways in which God’s will is lived. He reflects on what to do and believe when bad things happen, “why they happen, and the quest for God in the midst of it all, recognizing that God’s will is for good. Howell provides pastoral and theological help for the issues we face in life, showing us what we can do and how to “believe even more deeply in God, even as we grieve losses, resist evil, and muster hope.”
Questions for discussion accompany each chapter.

|Hollywood Worldviews: Watching Films with Wisdom & Discernment
By Brian Godawa
According to Brian Godawa in Hollywood Worldviews, there are two extreme positions to avoid in viewing movies: the cultural anorexic, who avoids all movies; and the cultural glutton, who almost always watches movies with little or no discernment or thought about the content. The problem with the first is related to one’s ability to redemptively interact with their culture. The problem with the second is the fact that movies are always based on a worldview, and they usually are produced to promote that worldview.
Thus, especially for Christians, but also for all who are concerned about American culture at the beginning of the twenty-first century, this book offers a wonderful antidote to both extremes–become a discerning viewer, who understands both what worldview is being presented and how it is being presented. The goal of this book, according to Godawa, is to help us to appreciate art (movies) better by understanding how they are formed and what they wish to say.
Godawa is a strong Christian, but he is also an accomplished screenwriter. He takes us on a fascinating tour of storytelling, worldviews and spirituality in the movies, and offers informative reviews of several contemporary movies. He includes an appendix on sex, violence and profanity, looking at how the Bible deals with all three to see how movies should deal with them. His passion for truth, especially truth as seen through movies, permeates this entire book.
Ultimately, Godawa hopes to enable us to see how movies can subtly affect us, causing us to change our ideas or even life because of what we see in them. For all the good that can be found in movies (and Godawa is quick to point out where that good is), Godawa knows that much of the contemporary movie culture is an infection of our faith, and will slowly turn us from the truth of God as revealed in His word. Thus, he aims to educate us in critical movie watching, so that we can cull from movies that which is good, and reject that which is less than good or even that which is evil.
|Can I Trust the Bible?
By Darrell L. Bock
Darrell Bock writes about the Bible in this Critical Questions Booklet: “After all, it was written over two millennia ago. Its roots go back to a different time and place. Does the Bible really reflect what that world was like, much less what my world is like? It is natural to ask the question if the Bible is really trustworthy…That question is what we shall consider in this booklet.” This booklet could serve as an excellent introduction to the Bible. Bock deals with such questions as: Who wrote the Bible and why should I believe them? How was the Bible put together? Can I believe that the miracles in the Bible actually happened? 64 pages.
