Who Needs A Superhero? Finding Virtue, Vice, and What’s Holy in the Comics by H. Michael Brewer – Baker Books (2004)

Few books in Christendom are wrapped around as brilliant a concept as this one. Within the pages of Who Needs A Superhero?, author H. Michael Brewer takes his love and knowledge of comic book superheroes and explores some key doctrines of the faith. Surprisingly, this book is neither fluff nor boring.

Through Superman, he gives us a modern re-telling…

Unwrapping the Pharaohs: How Egyptian Archaeology Confirms the Biblical Timeline by John Ashton & David Downs, Master Books (2006)

Egyptian chronology simply doesn’t confirm the Bible, but there is an excellent reason for this. Egyptian chronologies contain inflated lifespans for their god-kings and do not take into account Eusebius’ statement that “several Egyptian kings ruled at the same time… It was not a succession of kings occupying the throne one after the other, but several kings reigning at the same…

The Church of Facebook – How the Hyperconnected Are Redefining Community by Jesse Rice – David C. Cook (2009)

The Church of Facebook is an interesting book, but it fails miserably at establishing its primary message. According to the subtitle of the book, author Jesse Rice intends to show us how the hyperconnected are redefining community. What he actually demonstrates is that community cannot really take place online.

Beginning with a sociological overview of the theory…

Research Shows Natural Propensity To Believe In God

An interesting news announcement appeared today titled “Children are born believers in God, academic claims” (1).  

The news story describes research performed by Dr Justin Barrett, an academic researcher at the University of Oxford's Centre for Anthropology and Mind.  Dr. Barrett came to the conclusion that young people have a natural predisposition to believe in a supreme being.  This belief is based on the fact that even at a very young age, children inherently assume that…

Book Review: Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions 2

Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions, Volume 2 by Tim Chaffey, Ken Ham and Bodie Hodge  is the second installment from the Answers in Genesis team dealing with supposed contradictions in the Bible.  Forty supposed biblical contradictions are dealt with in this volume.

 

Many times, Christians are stopped cold in their attempts to share the biblical message when someone accuses the Bible of containing contradictions.  The Christian must be prepared to defend…

Evolutionary Fictions: On Plot Holes, Deus ex Machina and Other Crimes Against Fiction

Johnny Came Home is my upcoming superhero sci-fi novel set in the town of Midwich, West Virginia. Noting that microbes-to-man evolution is the the preferred explanation for comic book super powers these days, I basically set out to see if superheroes could be explained from a Biblical creationist POV. God…

Do Your Genes Determine Your Morality?

A recent press release from the University of Edinburgh (Sotland) announced that Psychologist Timothy Bates had completed a study of 800 sets of human twins of about 50 years old or more.  The study consisted of questionnaires filled out by the twins along with an assessment and comparisons of their environmental upbringing.  The ground-breaking conclusion was “Genes play a greater role in forming character traits than was previously thought, new research suggests” (1).  



Wow,…

Book Review: Meet the Skeptic

Meet the Skeptic is a book written by Bill Foster, published by Master Books, aimed at helping Christians better know the unbeliever and be better equipped to engage them in dialogue and discussion.  The book is well written, informative, and never exhibits a condescending attitude toward those who do not believe as the author believes.

 

Right off the bat, Mr. Foster gives us some wise and practical advice.  He tells us that it will not get us very far, when discussing…

Is It Common Sense That Humans and Animals Are Related?

I was reading some posts on a well-known web site that tries to fuse christian faith with Darwinian evolution.  I noticed a forum post that seems to typify the idea and the rationale that God somehow used the concept of evolution as a means of creation.  I extracted the key part of the post and I show it below along with my response afterwards.  Hopefully this will provide a coherent  answer to this common fallacy.



“There SHOULD not be any contention between Christianity and…

Review: Explore the Grand Canyon with Noah Justice





Millions of years ago......this phrase it used over and over again in books and other media to talk about or explain how the earth and everything on it is formed.  It is important for our children to learn and understand that there is physical evidence to prove the Biblical account of creation.  In the 30 minute DVD…

Great for God Review

For about the last week I have been reading a really good book called Great for God – Missionaries Who Changed the World by David Shibley. I hardly ever get to read books for myself. Because of lack of time or because I am just too busy reading kids books. But I found this book very easy to read because it is written in a short story…
