First published as a series of articles in 1976, then in magazine format, this work has been completely revised and updated with new diagrams incorporating current information. Always intended to be understandable to the general reader, this book covers the reasons why a conservative young-earth biblical view of the creation of our world fits the evidence. It would be easily read by teenage children but has enough information to satisfy an enquiring adult. Fossil evidence is examined, along with genetics and the age of the earth. There is an emphasis on the historical reasons for how Darwinian evolution has come to be so widely accepted despite much contrary evidence. The book includes a useful biography which also lists helpful websites.

Sylvia Baker

Sylvia Baker is a biologist and part of the leadership of the ‘Christian Schools Trust’. She co-pioneered one of the oldest of the new independent Christian schools in the UK, working as a science teacher for twenty-seven years. Having obtained two biology degrees in the late 1960s, Sylvia completed her PhD in Education in 2010 (University of Warwick, UK). Then, as part of a research team, in association with Professor Leslie Francis of Warwick University, she investigated the outcomes of a Christ-centred education which takes creationism seriously. This led to her academic book, Swimming Against the Tide: The New Independent Christian Schools and their Teenage Pupils (2013). She continues to research the interplay between faith and education, with particular interest in science education. From 2011 to 2017, she was a Visiting Research Fellow at Glyndwr University. Sylvia has spoken on creation topics over many years and she authored the well-known booklet Bone of Contention.
