December 21, 2012, the Mayan Calendar & A Free Kindle Book for the End of the World

The Mayan Long Calendar ends on December 21, 2012 and everyone's seeing that as a sign of an impending Apocalypse. Well, not everyone. The Mayans were actually looking forward to it as something of a Golden Age per some scholars.

In any case, Christians need not fear this hocus pocus. Jesus adamantly stated even He didn't know the day nor hour of His Return, only the Father…

Book Review: Indoctrination: Public Schools and the Decline of Christianity. Edited by Charles Laverdiere. Master Books: Green Forest, AR (2012)

I’m always leery of the book version of a film, especially documentaries and other nonfictional media, mostly because the “novelization” tends to rehash the same ground that I just covered in the movie. But every once in a while, the book proves to be the perfect complement the filmmakers promised. Indoctrinationis just such a book: relevant, readable and revealing.

I should begin…

A Baptist Pastor Blasts Inerrancy - And I Demonstrate Why This Is A Bad Idea!

On June 24, 2010, Associated Baptist Press reported on a sermon delivered on the same day by Dr. Wm. Richard Kremer to Garden Lakes Baptist Church in Rome, GA, entitled, Is the Bible Inerrant?

Dr. Kremer's sermon begins with the following claim, which I find utterly baseless for reasons I shall relate…

Review: Prophecy of the Heir by JC Lamont [Crimson Moon Press] 2012

JC Lamont's Prophecy of the Heiris an ambitious and daringly imaginative fantasy retelling the Bible's history from the Creation of our universe to the birth of Christ Himself, as seen through the eyes of angels, both faithful and fallen. Her novel combines the spiritual warfare and intrigue of CS Lewis or Frank Peretti with heroic action and adventure pulled from…

Review: The Peleg Chronicles - Book 1: Foundlings by Matthew Christian Harding [Zoe & Sozo Publishing] 2009

Foundlings, book one of Matthew Christian Harding’s Peleg Chroniclesis set some time in the post-Flood world in a story that pits the followers of the God of Noah against the Cult of the Dragon.

Harding’s writing reminds me of Beowulf, Tolkein or [to a lesser degree] Hickman and Weis’ secular Dragonlance Chronicles. The back cover promises…

Review: Evolution Impossible: 12 Reasons Why Evolution Cannot Explain the Origin of Life on Earth by Dr John F Ashton, Master Books (2012)

The back cover of John Ashton’s Evolution Impossible makes the claim that his book is “one of the most compelling and authoritative rebuttals of evolution today!” It is a very strong book, filled with numerous examples of evidence against the premises of evolutionary theory.

The subtitle of…

Awesome Science: An Interview with the Team Behind an Amazing New Science Series

A couple months ago, I received a copy of Awesome Science Episode 1: Grand Canyon. Awesome Scienceis a great new series hosted by genuinely likeable 14-year old host, Noah Justice, exploring science from a Biblical Creationist worldview.

This series is aimed at children and teens and – as most of my readers already know – I have a standing rule: No matter how…

A Review of the Henry Morris Study Bible (KJV) - New Leaf Publishing Group 2012

Dr. Henry M. Morris, founder of the Institute for Creation Research (ICR), is considered by many to be the “father of modern creation science.” He authored over 60 books in his lifetime, the most influential of which was the 1961 magnum opus, The Genesis Flood, co-authored with Dr. John Whitcomb. In the Introduction to The Henry Morris Study Bible, he testifies that over 60…

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…

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…

A Field Test of a Field Guide to Faith Conversations - Book Review of Bill Foster's Meet the Skeptic

This isn’t your typical book review. I mean, how often do you get to field test a field guide to faith conversations?

But it so happened that the other day I was talking to a young man at college and without warning I was catapulted into the middle of a faith conversation. One second, we’re talking about his interests in re-enacting medieval warfare. The next, he suddenly…

Book Review: It Could Happen Tomorrow by Gary Frazier [New Leaf Press] 2012

As someone who regularly speaks and writes on issues dealing with our Biblical origins, I don’t often get a chance to read anything dealing with eschatology, or the study of things to come.

Oh, we creationists do point out that this fallen and flood-scarred creation groans and travails for rebirth [Romans 8:22]; that Paul linked the Creation [in the First Adam] to the…
