Hidden Treasures in Job

Hidden Treasures in the Book of JobNumerous commentaries have been written on the Book of Job, although most deal virtually exclusively on issues of human suffering and the sovereignty of God. Dr. Hugh Ross of Reasons To Believe has written a book that examines the science content within the book of Job and how it explains creation. People often forget that God Himself addressed Job about His creation in chapters 38-41. Dr. Ross' book is a great addition to the Bible teaching that is missing from most Christian's study of the Bible. Originally tentatively titled "Answers in Job," Hugh Ross' new book shows how the book of Job answers the questions of both skeptics and young earth creationists. Job is the one Bible book young earth creationists organizations don't want their followers to read. Find out why...

God is Great

God is Great, God is GoodEditors William Lane Craig and Chad Meister have assembled a collection of the best scholars in Christianity to put together God is Great, God is Good: Why Belief in God is Reasonable and Responsible, one of the best books at refuting the claims of the "new atheists." Authors include William Lane Craig, J.P. Moreland, John Polkinghorne, Michael Behe, Alister McGrath, Gary Habermas, and others. The result is a comprehensive refutation of the arguments of the new atheists, and a thorough apologetic for the existence of God. More...

Answers for atheists

Code of Hammurabi copied?

I received an article from a skeptic that claimed the Mosaic Law came from the code of Hammurabi. Although I didn't know a lot about the code of Hammurabi at the time, I did know that the laws written before the Mosaic Law were quite severe, so I expressed some doubt about the premise of the article. So, let's examine the code of Hammurabi and see how it compares to the Mosaic Law. More...

Christian theology

Who is God?

I realized that I didn't really have a good introductory page on God. God is the Being of beings, the great "I am" who confronted Moses at the burning bush, self-existent, eternal and unchangeable. God is Creator of heaven and earth and the angelic realm. Included in the intro are topics, "Where is God," "What does God look like?," and "What does God want from me?" More...

Who is Jesus Christ?

Jesus of Nazareth is the central person of human history. Jesus was the Messiah (Christ) promised in the Old Testament scriptures—God in human form and Creator of the universe. Jesus took on human form to be born as a baby, growing up to live and teach by example, and provide the ultimate sacrifice for sin—to reconcile us with His holy nature. More...

Design vs. Evolution

Missing link?

According to numerous newspaper articles, the missing link between humans and apes, Australopithecus sediba, has been found by paleontologists in South Africa. However, the scientists who made the discovery and published the research on it are not quite so confident about where the new fossil fits in the hominid "family tree." In fact, the bones do not represent a logical sequence of "evolution" from the ape-like Australopithecines to the more human-like Homo erectus. Realistically, Australopithecus sediba looks more like a specialized ape that did not contribute to humankind. More...

Biblical creation

Early church fathers

Guest author John Millam examines the beliefs of the early church fathers regarding their views of the creation days. Although many of the church fathers believed the creation days were 24-hours long, others believed they were instantaneous. More...
