Although the debate has raged on for centuries in both the public realm and in the halls of academia, the deciding blow of whether or not a Creator fashioned the cosmos from nothing is still a lively and intense discussion. Can we know whether the Big Bang occurred? If so, does it present trouble for a believer's worldview? And what parts of evolution are scientifically verifiable and what are metaphysical? Do we know of phenomena that cannot be explained by elements acting on each other over time? George R. Urquhart began this book as a simple list of amazing things that could not be categorized or explained without the loving intentions of a Creator. Maturing beyond those simple goals, Reasons to Believe has grown into a full resource for understanding the questions concerning God's creation. With a objectivity and ability to honestly face the facts, George shows the world that a strong foothold can be established in both science and a belief in God without compromising the two. Follow George as he leads you clearly and concisely through the realms of rigorous scientific study and shows you the miracles and wonders of a creative God.

This book unravels mysteries, corrects misunderstandings, and offers thoughtful, straightforward responses to common objections about the Catholic faith. Bestselling author Scott Hahn, a convert to Catholicism, has experienced the doubts that so often drive discussions about God and the Church. In the years before his conversion, he was first a nonbeliever and then an anti-Catholic clergyman. In REASONS TO BELIEVE, he explains the "how and why" of the Catholic faith—drawing from Scripture, his own struggles and those of other converts, as well as from everyday life and even natural science. Hahn shows that reason and revelation, nature and the supernatural, are not opposed to one another; rather they offer complementary evidence that God exists. But He doesn't merely exist. He is someone, and He has a personality, a personal style, that is discernible and knowable. Hahn leads readers to see that God created the universe with a purpose and a form—a form that can be found in the Book of Genesis and that is there when we view the natural world through a microscope, through a telescope, or through our contact lenses. At the heart of the book is Hahn's examination of the ten "keys to the kingdom"—the characteristics of the Church clearly evident in the Scriptures. As the story of creation discloses, the world is a house that has a Father, a palace where the king is really present. God created the cosmos to be a kingdom, and that kingdom is the universal Church, fully revealed by Jesus Christ.

Reasons to Believe is the sad, funny, twisted, tragic and ultimately inspirational story of twenty-three year old Jimi Avery, who longs to be a poet but is trapped by her addiction to alcohol and drugs and her seemingly bottomless capacity for self-destruction. After her beloved father dies, she begins a rollercoaster ride through discovery and desolation, love and loss, reality and pipe dreams. During the course of the novel, she tries and fails several times to give up alcohol and drugs, with progressively more painful consequences. Finally, with the help of an old friend of her father's and a young girl she takes under her wing, Jimi becomes willing to let go of her boyfriend Angelo and everything else that holds her back from life's joy and beauty. She extricates herself from the web of her childhood traumas and finds hope, both in herself and the world outside. Ultimatley, she propels that hope into a workable sobriety. Jimi's story is a fictional memoir, filled with tears and laughter as she trudges haltingly along the bumpy road to recovery.

Armed with cutting-edge techniques, biochemists have unwittingly uncovered startling molecular features inside the cell that compel only one possible conclusion--a supernatural agent must be responsible for life. Destined to be a landmark apologetic work, The Cell's Design explores the full scientific and theological impact of these discoveries. Instead of focusing on the inability of natural processes to generate life's chemical systems (as nearly all apologetics works do), Fazale Rana makes a positive case for life's supernatural basis by highlighting the many biochemical features that reflect the Creator's hallmark signature. This breakthrough work extends the case for design beyond irreducible complexity. These never-before-discussed evidences for design will evoke awe and amazement at God's creative majesty in the remarkable elegance of the cell's chemistry.

Recent Barna research indicates that less than one in ten evangelical Christians hold a biblical worldview. A World of Difference seeks to change this disturbing fact by educating readers on how the Christian perspective is uniquely reasonable, verifiable, and liveable. Author Kenneth Richard Samples faced a profound test of his own belief system during a personal life-and-death crisis. In A World of Difference, he uses nine distinct tests to compare the Christian worldview with current religious and philosophical competitors, including Islam, postmodernism, naturalism, and pantheistic monism. Samples tackles tough issues through this in-depth study of Christianity's history, creed, and philosophical basis. An excellent resource for readers who want their view of life and the world to make sense.

Hidden Treasures in the Book of Job shows that the Bible is an accurate predictor of scientific discoveries and a trustworthy source of scientific information, and that both the book of Scripture and the book of nature are consistent both internally and externally.

The year 2009 marks the 150th anniversary of the publication of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species. Alongside that event, there are many Darwin Day celebrations planned to acknowledge his 200th birthday. Add to these the virulent attacks of the New Atheists, led by Richard Dawkins. Bible-believing Christians will be left increasingly challenged with the theory of evolution as the only model to explain the origins and age of the universe. In More Than a Theory, Hugh Ross, founder and president of Reasons To Believe, offers discerning readers a comprehensive, testable creation model to consider as an alternative. This fascinating resource will educate readers with a direct response to the recent and well-publicized challenges from aggressive atheists. In doing so, it also reminds the scientific community of what constitutes good science. Furthermore, it will supply Christians with the scientific information they need to defend their convictions that the God of the Bible is the Creator. Complete with several appendices that put common documents and stories to the same test, More Than a Theory is a bold, brave, and unapologetic work of apologetics that will stir much discussion in both the scientific and religious realms.
