Product Description

The year 2009 will mark the 150th anniversary of the publication of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species. Alongside that event, there will be many "Darwin Day" celebrations planned to acknowledge his 200th birthday. Add to these the virulent attacks of the 'New Atheists', led by Richard Dawkins, and Bible-believing Christians will be left increasingly challenged with the theory of evolution as the only model to explain the origins and age of the universe.
In More Than a Theory, Hugh Ross, founder and president of Reasons To Believe (a 'progressive creationist' Christian ministry), offers discerning readers a comprehensive, testable creation model to consider as an alternative. This resource will educate readers with a direct response to the recent and well-publicized challenges from aggressive atheists. In doing so, it also reminds the scientific community of what constitutes good science. Furthermore, it will supply Christians with scientific information to defend their convictions that the God of the Bible is the Creator. Complete with several appendices that put common documents and stories to the same test, More Than a Theory is an unapologetic work of apologetics that will stir much discussion in both the scientific and religious realms.

    I had a hard time understanding most of the scientific data and arguments but it all is interesting. I made this purchase more out of curiousity than anything. I can't see how the earth was even remotely habitable 10,000 years ago much less 1 million years ago. I enjoyed the book, it's full of scriptural references, but I had a hard time digesting the implication of billions of years.

    Hugh Ross certainly establishes very creditable documentation on a God created universe and especially the uniqueness of planet earth. What would be of great help would be an easily understood bullet point list that the average Christian could use when confronted with an agnostic/atheist. In sales lingo, we call this an elevator pitch. I gave this a NO recommendation simply because I didn't understand about a third of the book and don't have time to research the issues.

    I completely agree with the thorough review presented by Richard Deem. I highly recommend this book. What struck me is the difference of the RTB model to the Intelligent Design Movement (IDM). Proposing a top down approach through research to prove or disprove a theory seems much more likely to succeed against other theories than the bottom up approach of getting school boards to include theories of science that oppose evolution as practiced by IDM. This book explains that process and is a must read if one is interested in the Intelligent Design Movement.

    In the fifth book of his testable creation series, Hugh Ross (Reasons To Believe, RTB) examines the entire sweep of creation as a basis for a testable biblical creation model. If you are interested in getting started with the RTB creation model, this is the book with which to begin your reading.The book begins with an excellent introduction into the topics of intelligent design, creationism, and how scientific models are developed. Dr. Ross points out that most creationists are unwilling to provide a comprehensive model for creation. Intelligent Design theorists cannot provide a testable model, since they are unwilling to tie their theories to any particular creation account. In contrast, the RTB testable creation model takes an interdisciplinary approach to the formation of a creation model, integrating the simple sciences (mathematics, astronomy, and physics) in addition to the more complex sciences, such as biology and anthropology, into their model.The heart of the book is a presentation of RTB's model for the creation of galaxies, stars, and planets, life's beginning and extraterrestrial homes, life's history, advanced life, and the origin and history of humanity. Each chapter includes the biblical basis for the RTB model, along with the relevant scientific data. Chapter 16 compares and contrasts predictions made by major origins models. Chapter 17 compares the scores of naturalism, young earth creationism, theistic evolution and the RTB creation models on the basis of published data since 2006. These results show that the RTB model's predictions performed much better than any of the other three model's predictions for the simple sciences, complex sciences, and social sciences.The RTB model makes predictions about future scientific discoveries, and challenges proponents of other models to make their own predictions about what their models expect to find in future scientific studies. The book is highly recommended.
