How Great Thou Art: Recommended Resources

I wrote these studies using a variety of sources, some of them books and some online articles. Below are the ones that helped guide my research the most.


  • "I Don't Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist" by Norman Geisler and Frank Turek - Broadly covers a lot of the topics I'm going over. I used it quite a bit in preparing this study.
  • "Baker Encyclopedia of Christian Apologetics" by Norman Geisler - I didn't actually use this in preparing my study, but from what I've read since then it seems to be a thorough reference covering many issues relating to Biblical theology, including those regarding science and evidence.
  • "The Case for Christ" by Lee Strobel - I'm not really a fan of his overly colloquial writing style, but this book has a number of good interviews that discuss evidences for Christianity from history, archeology, and manuscripts.
  • "The New Evidence that Demands a Verdict" by Josh McDowell - Covers a ton of topics but doesn't go very deep and not terribly easy to read. Good as a starting point for further research.
  • "The Miracles of Exodus" by Colin Humphreys - Interesting look at several OT miracles and the physical processes God may have used to accomplish them.
  • "Darwin's Black Box" by Michael Behe - One of the more significant works in the Intelligent Design movement. Good scientific look at some of the shortcomings of the theory of macroevolution.
  • "The Naked Emperor: Darwinism Exposed" by Antony Latham - Another good book pointing out gaping holes in the theory of macroevolution.
  • "Macrodelusion?" by me ;-). Ok, not exactly a book, but this was my project for technical writing this summer. I take a brief look at evolution and intelligent design and address some of the more significant arguments from both sides.


  • http://www.answersincreation.org/ - An old-earth creationist website that I tend to agree with. A couple of my studies will discuss these issues, and although I've become convinced that the old-earth understanding is most likely the correct one, the overall series doesn't require that you agree.
  • http://www.reasons.org/ - Another old-earth (specifically progressive creationist) website that I find pretty convincing, although I don't agree with their founder (Hugh Ross) on everything.
  • http://www.uncommondescent.com/ - Intelligent Design weblog.
  • http://www.talkorigins.org/ - Excellent resource for reading pro-macroevolution arguments. Obviously I don't agree with many of their conclusions, but we can't expect to effectively address these issues if we don't know where the other side is coming from. I used this as a guide in finding where the prominent points of debate were.
