Product Description

Intelligent Design (ID) is a far-reaching model for origins that is often misunderstood by those on both sides of the issue - evolutionists and creationists alike. This compact guide breaks down the core beliefs of ID, contrasts them with those of evolutionary science and makes it all understandable and interesting. Written by William Dembski, a world-renowned expert on ID, and Sean McDowell, this book is for non-technical readers whose understanding may have been confused by educational bias and one-sided arguments and attacks. The authors explain the central theories of ID and show why scientific evidence increasingly conflicts with evolutionary theories. They also point out how both evolution and ID have radical implications for our culture . . . and what readers can do about it.

Publisher's Description

This compact guide lays out the basics of Intelligent Design, popularly known as ID. William Dembski, the dean of the intelligent-design movement, and Sean McDowell especially target readers whose understanding may have been confused by educational bias and one-sided arguments and attacks.

Commonsense and no-nonsense, with pointed examples, the authors explain

  • the central theories of ID, showing why the presence of information and meaningful complexity require the involvement of intelligence
  • why ID adheres to the scientific method and is a valid field of scientific inquiry
  • why scientific evidence increasingly conflicts with evolutionary theories
  • how both evolutionary theory and ID have religious/philosophical underpinnings, and why this causes so much controversy
  • how both systems of thought have radical implications for our culture--and what readers can do about it

Clarifying crucial issues, this key resource gives nonspecialists a solid grasp of one of today's foundational religious-scientific-cultural concepts.

    This my first book on this topic and I enjoyed reading it. The arguments, while not comprehensive, were very clear and easy to comprehend. The book as a whole has plenty of useful information regarding this topic and how to react to common objections made by skeptics. This has been a great resource and has raised my interest level in Intelligent Design. Overall, a good read.
