The Ultimate Proof of Creation

From the Answers in Genesis website (and from the book), "There is a defense for creation that is powerful, conclusive, and has no true rebuttal. As such, it is an irrefutable argument—an 'ultimate proof' of the Christian worldview. This book by astrophysicist/apologist Dr. Jason Lisle is a completely new 21st century guide to defending the Christian faith, emphasizing the Genesis account of creation. Engaging an unbeliever, even a staunch atheist, is not difficult when you use the proven techniques described here. The Ultimate Proof is applied to real-life experiences in answering real-life questions. You’ll learn how to move beyond simple circular arguments, spot logical fallacies, get to the real heart of the issue, and rationally resolve the origins debate. Discover The Ultimate Proof of Creation!

I just finished reading this book. I admit to being skeptical about the arrogant-sounding title, but Dr. Lisle does a very nice job showing that apart from the truth of the Bible, nothing makes sense. In other words, there is no reason for anything, nor can a person know anything, apart from the truth of the Bible. Evidence is interpreted by one's presuppositions and worldviews. But presuppositions must be proven once assumed, and only the Biblical worldview can make sense of those presuppositions. I'll be issuing an extensive book review, chapter by chapter, in the weeks to come, once my commentary on 1, 2, and 3 John is published.
