What People Are Saying

Phillip E. Johnson
"Ben Wiker's brilliant biography of Charles Darwin sheds more light on the contrast between Darwin the kindly man and the chilling logic of his theory than anything I have read. I highly recommend it."--(Phillip E. Johnson, Professor of law emeritus University of California, Berkeley and author of Darwin on Trial)
Michael Behe
"Benjamin Wiker's compelling account of the life of Darwin treats its subject as too few biographers do - not as an icon, not as a devil, but as a man. Very highly recommended."--(Michael Behe, Ph.D. author of Darwin's Black Box)
Jonathan Wells
"Ben Wiker brilliantly demonstrates that Darwinism (which is not the same as "evolution") is atheism masquerading as science. And like its intellectual cousin, Marxism, Darwinism has deeply corrupted our civilization."--(Jonathan Wells, Ph.D. author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design)
Guillermo Gonzalez
"Books about Charles Darwin and his theory too often they try to make Darwin into a secular saint, unworthy of criticism, or else they try to demonize him. Wiker avoids these extremes. All readers, regardless of their views on biological evolution, will have much to learn about the man and his ideas from this important biography on the bicentennial of Darwin's birth."--(Guillermo Gonzalez, associate professor of physics, Grove City College, and co-author of The Privileged Planet: How Our Place in the Cosmos is Designed for Discovery)
Marcus Grodi
"Being myself one who has been both a hard-headed atheist evolutionary and a Bible-thumping creationist it is truly a joyous relief to finally have such a clear, brilliant, and balanced presentation of Charles Darwin's life, beliefs, and motives. Cutting away the myths from both sides, Dr. Wiker enables us to finally see the man for who and what he really was. A must read, and on top of this, a thoroughly good read."--(Marcus Grodi, host of EWTN's The Journey Home)

    I Also Recommend:

    Th Real Darwin

    First, the sub-title can be quite misleading. This is by no means a full blown attack on Darwin or his character. Much of the book is devoted to praising not only his compassionate character, intelligence, committment to science and other virtues. It is also not an attack on evolution. It does question his honesty in matters of priority and also the emphasis on evolution as a materialistic process. The book is well written an flows evenly. The research is quite strong and brings to light many aspects of the man. It also assumes that the standard account of Darwin vs. Alfred Wallace is true. There is in fact no mention of Roy Davies book The Darwin Conspiracy, a book that makes a very strong case for a more contoversial conclusion.
