Institute For Creation Research The Design and Complexity of the Cell

Dr. Jeffrey Tomkins and his contributing colleagues have provided an excellent resource that will document and help explain the intricate processes of cells and give keen insight for "clearly seeing" the obvious hand of the Creator in the "things that are made" (Romans 1:20).

The majority of scientifically trained biologists and geneticists are taught that the apparent design that is observed in cells is the result of only random chemical and energy processes operating over eons of time. Such a belief system prompts their thinking to rest on purely natural logic, producing materialistic conclusions - and often ignoring or marginalizing the implications of careful engineering and design.

There are, however, multiple thousands of scientists who accept the Bible's message that there is a Creator who planned the creation, designed the intricate engineering efficiencies in that creation, and then built the product: our planet and its wonderfully unique life and functions. That belief system not only fits empirically with what is observed (design, precise function, operational efficiencies, etc.), but provides insight that enables creation-based scientists to grasp the significance of the information more readily - without having to invent a supposed eons-long story for the development of what is actually observed.

Fantastic overview of God's magnificent creation -- the cell.
Great view for small groups or an entire church congregation.

This book far exceeded my expectations. I worked as a research scientist for many years before becoming a Christian and accepting God's call to missions. Therefore, I expected to be able to understand much of what is contained in the book but I was surprised at how practical and understandable the teaching is for non-science types.
I have already used several facts from the book to illustrate points in sermons and I plan to have our two high-school boys read it as a home-school science requirement.
