A good summation of this book come from one of the authors, my faith was totally changed. I then believed that Gods word was true from the very beginning (Ps. 119:160) (p. 65). Up-to-date, erudite, intriguing, strongly witnessing for the Lord, this journal of life treks into the truth provides much food for thought for all readers, whether creationists, evolutionists, or those unsure of their stance. Written straight from the heart, without frills and furbelows, with full reliance on actuality, it leaves indelible marks in readers thoughts. Persuaded by the Evidence will find an interested audience in high schools and colleges and will make an excellent reference for church workers and individual readers. With its 2 5 page cameos, this book of spiritual adventures fits well into spare moment reading. Donna Eggett, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
