Darwinian theories of the universe, although mostly rejected by evangelical Christians, have still found their way into creation theology. A concept such as evolutionist creation has watered down much of the Bible's teaching in order to reconcile with popular tenants of science. The whole controversy swirls around the age of the universe.Dr. Kurt Wise, an associate professor of science and director of the Center for Origins Research and Education at Bryan College, shows from solid biblical teachings and scientific confirmation why young universe creation is correct. Beginning with God and His Word as the standard, Wise demonstrates how the biblical witness teaches that the age of the universe is not as old as Darwinian theory would contend. He also demonstrates how all issues raised by evolutionists can be answered not only by the Bible, but also by scientific data and research, nailing shut macroevolution's coffin.

    Dr. Kurt Wise is just about the best creation scientist(and one of the few left) out there that really knows his stuff. In his book Faith, Form and Time, Dr. Wise gives the best argument i have heard for the creation theory of the earth. Anyone who proclaims to be knowledgeable in the areas of science should read this book just to understand the ideas of a true creationists perspective! =D
