Thomas Nelson The Face that Demonstrates the Farce of Evolution, Paperback

What are the "facts" of evolution? Is it a legitimate theory or simply a hoax? Hanegraaff probes four gaping holes in Darwin's theory: the Fossil record, Ape-men, Chance, and Empirical science. He also addresses survival of the fittest; theological evolution; Bible origins; human cloning; and the role evolutionary thought had in propagating racism, abortion, and homosexuality. 240 pages, softcover from Nelson.

Very informative cutting to the chase. I thought this was one of the better books on this subject giving an overall view. It isn't 'intellectually embarrasing' as one person said. This is where people will divide on the subject showing their true colors to what they believe or want to believe. The thing is...people need to read both sides and weigh in on the evidence. Evidence is much stronger for Creation by far. The deceit and lack of transitional fossils, laws of thermodynamics are examples. The missing link is what evolution often says they are searching for. The truth is the missing links are in the millions. Some may diss this book or any other book showing the weakness of evolution, but this book is informative and easy to read. Dr Duane Gish's book 'Creation Scientists Answer Their Critics' really dives into it more.

I have read a very wide selection of evidence both for and against evolution and I have found that evolution is in severe lack of supporting evidence. Hank Hannegraaff does an excellent job of showing the follies of evolution, but he keeps it at a level where the average layman can understand it. This book is excellent for someone who is not well read in the evolution/creation literature and would like to learn what the evidence really says. It's easy to read and the acromnym F.A.C.E. is an excellent tool to use to show the truth about evolution. I wholeheatedly reccommend this book to anyone who is confused about evolution and who would like to know the truth.I disgree with Stephen, in that, I believe Hank has very firm grasp of evolution, and after studying the evidence, and being truthful with himself(perhaps something more evolutionists should try), Hank came to the correct conclusion; evolution is false. Consequently, evolution has been used in defense of some of histories greatest evils, abortion(Hank does an excellent job of showing the fallacies of arguments in favor of abortion), the holocaust, slavery and the list goes on and on. It's remarkable how the philosophy of evolution has been used for nothing but evil, and yet some people wish to hold on to it so dearly that they refuse to look at the truth.If you hold that the theory of evolution is true, then you should read this book, with an open mind, when you're finished , I doubt that you want to hold onto the "belief" in evolution, anymore.I also recommend Philip Johnson's Darwin on Trial,and Cornelius Hunters Darwin's God, both excellent books.

Intellectually embarassing. Hank should stick to his critique of cults. No wonder his understanding of evolution led to his conversion--he did not truly comprehend evolution. Also, in terms of ethics, sexism and abortion were even more rampant in the ancient world--with all its gods--than post-scientific developments. Moreover, the horrors of Christian history are not adequately addressed. Consequently, we here have largely fantasy, fundamentalist intellectualism and suicide, as well as mental gymnastics of all kinds. Having said this, I think Hank's work is well-intentioned--only misguided and misinformed.
