It is a rarely discussed fact of history that the premise of Darwinian evolution has been deeply rooted in the worst racist ideology since its inception. Read a thorough account of the effects of evolution on the history of the United States and discrimination based on ethnicity, including slavery and the Civil rights movement. One Race One Blood goes one step farther to show the global harvest of death and tragedy that still finds its roots in Darwin's destructive writings.
The tragic legacy of Darwins controversial speculations on evolution has led to terrible consequences taken to the deadliest extremes. One Race One Blood reveals the origins of these horrors, as well as the proof revealed in Scripture that God created only one race.
You will discover:
- Nazi Germany used evolutionary concepts to justify the extermination of "unfit" people groups such as Jews, Gypsies, and Slavs
- The origins of people groups, the genetics of skin color, and what the Bible says about "interracial" marriage
- Eye-opening discussion on racism and its roots in the hearts and minds of millions still today.
Within these compelling pages, Dr. A. Charles Ware, president of Crossroads Bible College, and Ken Ham, president of Answers in Genesis examine the historical roots of racism that have permeated evolutionary thought, and the Bible's response to this disturbing issue. This is a crucial and timely study that profoundly addresses the Christian worldview regarding "race" from a compassionate and uniquely compelling perspective.
Ken Ham is the president/CEO and founder of Answers in Genesis - U.S. and the highly acclaimed Creation Museum. Ken Ham is one of the most in-demand Christian speakers in North America. Ken's emphasis is on the relevance and authority of the book of Genesis and how compromise on Genesis has opened a dangerous door regarding how the culture and church view biblical authority. His Australian accent, keen sense of humor, captivating stories, and exceptional PowerPoint illustrations have made him one of North America's most effective Christian communicators.
Dr. Ware is president of Crossroads Bible College in Indianapolis, Indiana and the author of several books. He is also chairman of the Association for Biblical Higher Educations Ethnic Diversity Committee and speaks at churches, Christian schools, colleges, seminaries, mission conferences, camps, prisons, and civic functions in the United States and abroad. In addition, Dr. Ware is a consultant on racial reconciliation and leadership to various organizations and companies (including Wal-Mart), and his ministry is well received by audiences of all races.
Dr. Ware has written, co-written, and edited several books. His most recent book, Darwins Plantation, is co-authored by Answers in Genesis founder and president Ken Ham. In February 2009, Moody Radios Prime Time America and CBNs The 700 Club aired interviews with Dr. Ware about the book and the college.
Dr. Ware and his wife, Sharon, have been married for 36 years and have six children.
Inkwell Reviews4 Stars Out Of 5Review from inkwellreviews.comFebruary 15, 2017Inkwell ReviewsQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As you know I dont usually review non-fiction books, but I couldnt help it here. One Race One Blood is chock-full of important information, yet simply put and easy to understand.
As I read this book, I could tell that Ken Ham and A. Charles Ware did their researching and knew what they were talking about. If you read this book, then you can bet that it is all biblical truth. I would encourage all Christians to read this book. Racism is very prominent in our society and we must know what the Bible says about it. Also, this isnt just about racism between blacks and whites, rather all discrimination, where it comes from and what we should do about it.
Even though this book is short, at some points I did feel as if they could have either had more information or made the book shorter. This is the only problem I had with this book and honestly, its not that bad. This book has helped me see more through a biblical lends and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Both authors: Ken Ham and Charles Ware did a good job at presenting their arguments against the "so called" Theory of Evolution. First they cover the subject in general and then they cover some of the dangerous implications including racism. Ken Ham writes, "Perhaps the most infamous abuse of evolution to justify racism was Adolf Hitler's Nazi regime, which promoted a master race and sought to exterminate the so-called inferior races." (p.30) The authors were straightforward and honest to admit that the Theory of Evolution mindset is not the soul cause of racism, but did stress that it's mindset is one of the major causes.
I was sucked into the book from the very first page when Ken Ham told the story of an a African pygmy by the name of Ota Benga who was brought to the United States in 1904 by an African explorer who had bought him at a slave market. Ota's wife and children had been slaughtered and their bodies mutilated in a campaign of terror by the Belgian government. Ota was 4'11' and weighed 103 pounds and people literally treated him as an animal. They foolishly thought he was the lost link and did all kinds of inhumane things to him including caging him up with an ape! People would stare into his cage and throw things at him trying to evoke a response.
What proponents of Darwinism won't tell you about Darwin is that in the last page of his book, "The Descent of Man," Darwin expressed the opinion that he would rather be descended from a monkey than from a "Savage." In describing those with darker skin, he often used words like "savage," "low," and "degraded" to describe American Indians, pygmies, and almost every ethnic group whose physical appearance and culture differed from his own. Ken Ham writes, "Although racism did not begin with Darwinism, Darwin did more than any person to popularize it." (p.22)
Ken Ham writes, "Once people abandon the authority of God's Word, there is no foundation for morality and justice in the world. When God's truth is rejected, human reason alone is used to justify evil of every sort (Racism, Euthanasia, Abortion)." (p.32)
I also like the way Charles Ware reveals some of the struggles of being in a "interracial marriage." According to War, there is only ONE race in the Human Species and many different variations. He proposes that we do away with using the term "race" when discussing the different people groups in the world because every human being in the world is classified as Homo Sapien. Scientist today agree that there is really only on biological race of humans. Geneticists have found that if you were to take any two people from anywhere in the world, the basic genetic differences between these two people would typically be about 0.2 percent, even if they came from the same people group. "Racial" characteristics account for only about 6 percent of this 0.2 percent variation. That means that the "racial" genetic variation between human beings of different "race" is a mere 0.012 percent. (p.112)
I feel I was not adequately equipped to counter the "Theory of Evolution" in seminary. Now (after reading "One Race, One Blood") I feel well equipped to talk against evolution with its dangerous implications. The book was well documented with references. I was also surprised at how EASY the book was to read.

Ken Ham and Dr. A. Charles Ware truly grasped the vision God gave them for writing this book and did so quite effectively.
One Race One Blood: A Biblical Answer to Racism takes a new look at a tired, yet still highly controversial subject.
Do you know the subtitle of Charles Darwin's book, The Origin of the Species?
"What does that have to do with racism?" you ask.
The full title of Darwin's classic 1859 book is The Origin of the Species: The Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.
Does that answer your question?
Still not sold?
How about Ham's quote about one of Darwin's next books, The Descent of Man?
"In The Descent of Man, Darwin popularized the idea of different races of people---lower races, higher races, primitive races, advanced races, and so on. What did that do? As the late Steven J. Gould from Harvard University said, 'Biological arguments for racism may have been common before 1850 but they increased by orders of magnitude following the acceptance of evolutionary theory.'"
Now are you getting the idea?
Ham and Ware tag-team a tough, but important subject throughout the eight chapters of this necessary read. They show us how we are all truly of one blood, Adam's blood, and are therefore one race. We have many diverse people groups in our world, but truly are all of the human race. Our culture and thinking has been ingrained and polluted by the ways of man, but ultimately what God has to say is the bottom line.
Ham and Ware guide us through discovering and confirming what God's Word has to say about our origin and our race. Not only do they scientifically prove to us how much we truly, foundationally, genetically have in common, they also point out some specific, basic, Biblical truths on the matter.
Here are a few points they make:
* We're all created by God. (Genesis 2:7)
* We're all in God's image. (Genesis 1:26)
* We're all one family. (Acts 17:26)
* We're all loved by God. (John 3:16)
And as Ham says, "The answers we are looking for exist. The truths that we seek to anchor our souls have not changed. The compass that we need to chart our way in the future is still intact. God's truth has always been and always will be."
Dr. Ware reminds us that "Heaven will be a diverse community. Citizens of heaven will include representatives from different ethnic, gender, cultural, economic, educational, social, geographic, and national backgrounds. Heaven will be a diverse but peaceful society with loving relationships created through Christ. Grace to forgive through the Cross and transformation through the truth reunites and heals those whose relationships were broken by sin. (Ephesians 2:14-22) The Cross reminds us that such unity did not come easily or cheaply....People who will intentionally cross the boundaries of racial solidarity and reunite the family of God are needed today."
According to Ham, "If you truly want to see your life reflect the life of Christ, ten you must begin to allow Christ to love others through you, particularly those who are different from you, just as He did."
"But old ideas dies hard. New ideas require new thinking and often require a conscious choice to change our beliefs and our actions. This is certainly the truth when it comes to issues of racism," states Ham.
And finally, I leave you to consider one more thing pointed out in this intriguing, challenging book:
"What you now know much make its way to your heart; for while racism can be combated with fact, it essentially is an issue of the heart. It's one thing to know the history of 'humankind' as it is revealed in Scripture and is now supported by science. But it's quite another thing to look out on the sea of humanity in our world and feel from the depths of your soul that we are brothers and sisters---that we are one race---that we are "one blood."
I don't think I need to add any more to the wise words of these men. Nothing, that is, except to say that you truly need to read this from cover-to-cover to get the full depth of what they reveal to us in this priceless piece of work.
Whether you are still on the fence about this issue, or even are clearly on one side or the other---this book raises necessary discussions and presents factual, scientific, scriptural evidence to make the point that we truly are---One Race One Blood.
What about you?
Do you find this hard for your heart and mind to grasp?
Honestly, do you?
