Product Description

More than a simple logic textbook or a list of arguments to use against creationists, Discerning Truth hones in on the use of logic in apologetics. Short chapters focus on common evolutionary fallacies, including reification, equivocation, begging the question, question-begging epithet, bifurcation, a faulty appeal to authority, and more. A section of real-life examples (with answers) allows you to practice spotting these logical fallacies. 135 pages, softcover.

Presented to us by a Doctor of Astrophysics, Discerning Truth does exactly what its subtitle says: it lays bare to the glare of truth the often deliberate miscalculations found in evolutionary arguments against creationism. Defending the creationist position through the systematic use of reason, Lisle discusses the various fallacious arguments used by evolutionists to discount creationism. You’ll remember several of the types of arguments from tertiary English or Philosophy, reification, bifurcation, ad hominem, and the strawman fallacy; with a sprinkling of more everyday ones such as begging the question and equivocation.

For all this, reading this book is not daunting. Definitions are clearly stated. Difficult truths are put into easy-to-cope-with language. Very pointed cartoons illustrate important issues. Examples of how to state creation arguments refuting the declarations of evolutionists are clearly laid out in language laymen can readily use. The last two chapters are devoted to actual evolutionist arguments, how they are fallacious, and the creationist answers. An appendix of alternate names for each fallacy plus a glossary round out a full package of information usable by the creationist.

Dr. Lisle's qualifications for writing Discerning Truth are impressive. He is a research scientist, works with the Answer in Genesis Ministries, is the planetarium director at the Creation Museum, and has written extensively in both secular and Christian literature about the science of creation. Discerning Truth is valuable in several arenas, such as: personal information and affirmation; ammunition against and protection from evolutionists; and, providing information a teacher can present to students to help them stand successfully against evolutionist onslaughts. – Donna Eggett, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
