The subject of our origins has been one of the most hotly debated issues for centuries. Today, things are no different. However, the theory of evolution has now become so accepted in our society that it is being taught as fact in our schools and some Christians believe that evolution is God's process of creation. In this book David Tyler seeks to redress this situation, by showing how far evolution is at odds with both biblical revelation and scientific fact. The author's concern is to lay down the right foundations, starting with what God himself has revealed. He shows how, when we look at the facts, far from being at odds with science, the biblical account of creation is in complete harmony with it. The book communicates the Christian faith in a straightforward and readable way, and also contains questions for further study or discussion, making it ideal for group Bible studies.
The origins issue is pervasive in the media. It is affecting the way people perceive Christianity: a major factor supporting unbelief. The argument is that Christians do need to take this issue seriously. The prime focus is theistic evolution: Did God create using the evolutionary process? What does biblically-based science look like? What does it mean to develop a Christian worldview?
