Book Review: The Lie: Evolution/Millions of Years by Ken Ham #grow4christ

on November 13, 2013

About the Book:

In 1987 Ken Ham wrote what would become a prophetic warning to the Church about the destructive effects of compromise with evolutionary ideas, and how this compromise undermines Scriptural authority and erodes Christian confidence in the infallibility of God’s Word. Today we have Christians not only confused when it comes to Genesis and age of the earth, but even the reality of Hell, Adam as a real person, and Christ’s own words about creation, marriage and more are being debated in the pulpits across the world. In this special revised and updated edition, Ken Ham again takes the lead in pointing out the looming precipice the Church is rushing towards, how evolution and/or millions of years, is driving away young people of the faith, and the biblical solution that can change it!


You can view the book’s trailer and read the preview of The Lie on the New Leaf Publishing Group’s website.


My Opinion:


This book took me a long time to read, a really long time – not because it wasn’t interesting but because there were so many facts and other interesting tidbits of information that taking it all in left me sometimes, a little brain dead.  I’m a Biblical Creationist, which means that I believe God created the world as it’s stated in Genesis in 6 days and rested on the 7 th – 24 hour days, not 1000 year days or other such nonsense.  So that also makes me one of the ‘crazy’ Young Earthers that are so often blasted in the media and by secular scientists.  I’m so glad I read this book and will be coming back to it because, if you’re a Christian, you’re going to want to know how to defend your faith and that faith starts in Genesis – if you can’t take Genesis as literal then how can one think the rest of the Bible should be literal?  Genesis is the foundation or the literal beginning of everything that Christians believe – including Jesus coming to live among us.


This book will allow you, if you haven’t already, understand why Genesis should be taken as literal and how to defend that faith – to both non-Believers and even Believers who believe in old earth or even that God used evolution to create the world.  Covering such areas as: Christianity being under attack, evolution and religion, creation and religion, the root of the problem, crumbling foundations, evangelism in a pagan world and more you’ll come away with a better understanding of what it means to embrace the whole Bible in it’s literal form.  Now, some might say I’m just embracing Ken Ham’s beliefs but that isn’t what this book is about it’s about teaching the Christian how to embrace Genesis as our foundation of God’s power and how to defend that using Scripture.


So, if you’re a Christian who believes in any form of evolution such as the gap theory, day age, or just outright Darwinian evolution you should grab this book and read it with an open mind, much prayer and seeking the Scriptures as well as seeking out Christian scientific studies.  If you’re a Christian who is floundering in a world that teaches Genesis isn’t real or in a church who espouses that God used evolution and you want to know how to stand firm then this book is for you too.  It can be purchased for $13.99 and it’s a great bargain for all that is contained within it’s covers because we must be prepared to give an answer for our faith.
