Product Description

This 25th-anniversary edition of Ken Ham's The Lie has been revised and expanded to add modern examples and bring the book up to the moment, while keeping the basic arguments of biblical truth just as strong as they were before. Warning readers that compromising Genesis has led to an irrelevant gospel-- and why it remains critically important for all Gospel messages--The Lie will give you an understanding of how and why creationism impacts your worldview and the worldview of those you're trying to reach. Linking an overall decline in conservative values to an old-earth, evolutionary model, The Lie follows a presuppositional apologetics model that casts evolution as "a religion that enables people to writing their own rules.the so-called scientific justification in today's world for people to continue in this rebellion against God."

Three new appendices details the argument of evolution v. God's word, explain the shift to evolution as a symptom of the "disease" of millions of years, and addition information on "compromise positions." 236 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

In 1987 Ken Ham wrote what would become a prophetic warning to the Church about the destructive effects of compromise with evolutionary ideas, and how this compromise undermines Scriptural authority and erodes Christian confidence in the infallibility of God's Word. Today we have Christians not only confused when it comes to Genesis and age of the earth, but even the reality of Hell, Adam as a real person, and Christ's own words about creation, marriage and more are being debated in the pulpits across the world. In this special revised and updated edition, Ken Ham again takes the lead in pointing out the looming precipice the Church is rushing towards, how evolution and/or millions of years, is driving away young people of the faith, and the biblical solution that can change it

    Although I am not from the USA I enjoyed this book which discusses some problems which are in the USA now.

    What I like about the book is the strong apologetic in it. That we should stand firm on our Biblical foundation and never step on any other ground than the Biblical foundation.

    <i>The Lie</i> by Ken Ham is a book with the subtitle on the cover: THE LIE: Evolution/Millions of Years. Now, I'm not going to review the entire creation vs evolution debate. I personally believe in Biblical truth and creationism, so my theology is similar to this book's author. I WILL say that the book has good information in it for someone wanting to learn more about creationism and Biblical truth, as well as lots of supports and examples about creationism. Unfortunately I did find this book to be rather dry -- and I felt like I was reading through a series of essays, rather than one flowing thought. I had to make myself read it--but I'm not sure the author was looking for readability so much as for getting out his information. So -- it'd be worth it for you to read, but maybe not an easy/enjoyable read.

    The content isn't just limited to the origins debate, but also touches on different topics which are affected by what you believe as origins/truth. Topics such as people groups, marriage, morality, etc.

    I'd recommend this book because of the subject matter, though it is a bit tiresome to read through in entirety. Maybe just reading a chapter a week or every few days would've been easier. It's a book we'll probably keep and use again in the future.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review. I was not required to write a positive review.

    Ken Ham wrote The Lie to help Christians understand the Creation/Evolution issue. With evolution being the only option taught in most schools, Christian students are finding it difficult to reconcile their education with their faith. The majority of those students dismiss the Biblical account of creation as false, thereby undermining the very first book of the Bible, and its subsequent authority in their lives. Is it any wonder that by the time they graduate from college, most have walked away from their faith and Christian upbringing completely?

    The Lie takes a very comprehensive look at the Creation vs. Evolution discussion, argument-by-argument. Ken Ham points out the fallacies in the evolution arguments and helps validate the Biblical account of creation with both logic and science. This is not an easy book to read. While his explanations are expressed well and are not difficult to understand, it is still a heavy topic. It is written at an adult level -- for upper-level high school students, college students, and adults. This isn't something you can just hand to a junior high student or most high school students. Even if you have older students reading it, expect to be available for many in-depth conversations as they process the information. As a busy Mom, I've found it difficult to find time to read this book with the concentration it requires. It's been a slow process of reading it in bits of pieces in quiet moments. Of course, being pregnant doesn't help me focus on the book.

    With all that said, I do believe this is a very important book for every Christian to read. With all the cultural attacks on the Bible and its teachings, Christians should carefully consider this particular issue and its effects on their view of the Bible's reliability and authority.

    This book was provided to me free, in exchange for an honest review. No other compensation was given.

    25 years later, this book still rings true and is even more important to read today as evolution and millions of years is taught as "fact". Over the last several decades, schools and society in general have been steering people to look within themselves for some type of enlightenment. Accepting that there truly is a God who is Creator of all means accepting individual responsibility for our sinful lives. It would mean acknowledging that God really did set beneficial rules in the beginning. Our choice to not obey and follow His guidelines means eternal separation from the most High Lord of all life. Ken Ham brings lies we are told to light and stresses the additional concerns we should have over Christians buying into these lies.

    While I didn't read the original The Lie book, it seems that one of the most important additions to this book is found in addressing Christians who are compromising the Truth; those trying to make evolution fit into the Scriptures. There is no possible way for evolution and Biblical Creation to mesh. The most pointed fact is found on the 6th day of creation, when God created man in His own image (not in the image of an ape or pond scum). There was no death before sin, thus no death before Adam disobeyed God. Trying to fit millions of years into 6 days just doesn't work because there was no sin/death before Adam and Eve's devastating choice. In addition, God ended each day commenting that His creation was "good", culminating in it was "very good." God would never call sin or any of it's horrific after-affects good; thus there was no sin/no death/no millions of years.

    Differentiating between OBSERVABLE science and HISTORICAL science is something that is left severely understated (or missing completely) in many circles (Christian and secular). How many times have I heard or read the argument that someone is "all about science" so to them that is the end-all to the Creation vs evolution debate! Just being able to give someone the definition of what observable and historical science mean is a huge first step to understanding how "science" itself is defined and how it relates to the past. I love that this is explained and expanded on in this book. It's something we need to not only know for ourselves but is of utmost importance to teach this differentiation to our children so they understand and will know how to defend the Bible/Biblical Creation against attacks to God's truths.

    One quote that stood out is, "The public has genuinely been misled into thinking that evolution is only scientific and belief in God is only religious." (pg 72/73) Ken Ham explains this in much more detail than I could. Even secular museums displaying fossils, plants, and animal specimens are merely displaying evidences that they are interpreting based on "evolutionary beliefs"; a hypothesis of what could have happened. The same fossils, plants, and animal specimens could be on display in a Creation museum with interpretations based on the Biblical details of Creation, the sinful fall of mankind and and resulting corruption of everything in this world, the worldwide flood of Noah's day (with resulting upheavals/carving-out of the global surface and laying down of massive amounts of rocks layers/fossil-creation), etc. Interpretation is all relative to the glasses you are looking through. No one is here now to tell us all about the beginning of creation/time itself, but God was there and as Creator He has left us with THE record of the history of the world.

    This is an excellent book to begin with or to read in addition to other Biblical-creation based books. Expand your knowledge on the subject and don't be the one to shrug your shoulders or walk away the next time someone throws the "well, I just believe in science" card on the table. Evolution and millions of years isn't observable, testable science. It's a theory that has no proof; just many voices that try to fit pieces together in an effort to push the one true God they don't want to acknowledge out of the picture. If you look at the same 'evidences' through the light of what God tells us happened in the last 6,000 years, there is ample proof (using the same 'evidences') that what God said happened did happen.

    Psalm 11:3 "If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?" Our battle today isn't just evolution/millions of years versus Creation. The Christians who are trying to fit evolution into the Bible are ultimately destroying the foundations of God's Word. His Word is infallible. What He says is truth and when you mess with God's Word you are causing people to question that anything in the Bible is true. Don't be the one to corrupt His Word with lies or you could be the one to lead others on a wide path away from the God who created and loves them.

WHEN YOU HAVE THE CORRECT STARTING POINT, CREATION ABOUT 6,050 YEARS AGO AND A GLOBAL FLOOD CIRCA 4,100 YEARS AGO EVERYTHING MAKES SENSE.
