What Does the Bible Say About Astronomy
This booklet, written by astrophysicist Dr. Jason Lisle, answers three key questions in the origins debate.
- What’s the real age of the universe?
- Does the Bible teach the earth is round?
- What does the Bible say about the big bang?
A great introduction to the universe and controversial origins topics, with answers from a biblical perspective!
What Really Happened to the Dinosaurs
Dinosaurs are used more than almost anything else to indoctrinate children and adults in the idea of millions of years of earth history. However, the Bible gives us a framework for explaining dinosaurs in terms of thousands of years of history, and solving the mystery of when they lived and what happened to them.
Cain’s Wife: Who Was She?
Is Cain’s Wife the most-talked-about wife in history? We don’t even know her name, yet she was discussed at the Scopes Trial, mentioned in the movies Inherit the Wind and Contact, and talked about in countries all over the world for hundreds of years.
Skeptics of the Bible have used Cain’s wife time and again to try to discredit the book of Genesis as a true historical record. Sadly, most Christians have not been given an adequate answer to this question. As a result, the world sees them as not being able to defend the authority of Scripture, and thus the Christian Faith.
Many have claimed that for Cain to find a wife, there must have been other “races” of people on the earth who were not descendants of Adam and Eve. For many people, this question is a stumbling block to accepting the creation account of Genesis and its record of only one man and woman at the beginning of history. Defenders of the Gospel must be able to show that all human beings are descendants of one man and one woman (Adam and Eve)-because only descendants of Adam and Eve can be saved. Thus, believers need to be able to account for Cain’s wife and show clearly she was a descendant of Adam and Eve.
The Biblical Answer to Racism
The Bible does not even use the word race in reference to people, but it does describe all human beings as being of one blood (“from one man”) (Acts 17:26). This of course emphasizes that we are all related, as all humans are descendants of the first man, Adam (1 Corinthians 15:45), who was created in the image of God (Genesis 1:26–27). The last Adam, Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:45), also became a descendant of Adam. Any descendant of Adam can be saved because our mutual relative by blood (Jesus Christ) died and rose again. This is why the gospel can (and should) be preached to all tribes and nations.
What constitutes a “race”? Can the Bible be used to justify racist attitudes? Do we have different skin color or different shades? In this concise booklet you’ll discover the answers to these questions and many more.
God’s Word on Gay “Marriages”
One of the Hot Topics of the Day: Gay “Marriage”:
- Who determines what marriage should be?
- Are gay people born that way?
- What about gay “marriage” and civil rights?
- Is evolution the cause?
God’s Word on Gay “Marriage” will equip you to answer these questions and share the Good News.
The Supreme Court did not invent marriage. God did! The Judge has ultimate and absolute authority, and He has already decided what marriage is.
And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh” (Matthew 19:4–6).
Creation vs. Evolution: Irrefutable Proof
Can we really know for certain how life began?
“Creation vs. evolution: this debate is a hot topic in our culture today. Opinions abound….Can we logically, scientifically demonstrate that one of these positions must be the case? Can we really know for certain how life began? I suggest that we can.”
–Jason Lisle, PhD, astrophysics

Are ETs and UFOs Real
Are there extraterrestrial life forms out there? The question of life on other planets is a hot topic in our culture. Even many Christians have bought into the idea of extraterrestrial alien life. But is this idea really biblical?
Journey through Scripture as Dr. Jason Lisle explains how this idea largely stems from a belief in evolution and that from a biblical perspective, extraterrestrial life does not seem reasonable.
7 Reasons Why We Should Should Not Accept Millions of Years
There is an intensifying controversy in the church all over the world regarding the age of the earth. For the first 18 centuries of church history, the almost universal belief of Christians was that God created the world in six literal days roughly 6,000 years ago and destroyed the world with a global Flood at the time of Noah.
But about 200 years ago, some scientists developed new theories of earth history, which proposed that the earth and universe are millions of years old. Over the past 200 years Christian leaders have made various attempts to fit millions of years into the Bible.
In this short booklet, we want to introduce you to some of the reasons Christians cannot accept millions of years, without doing great damage to the church and her witness in the world. We hope that it will help you think more carefully about this subject and will motivate you to dig deeper.
Why Does God’s Creation Include Death and Suffering
Why do bad things happen? Through the ages, human beings have sought to reconcile their understanding of an all-powerful, loving God with the seemingly endless suffering around them. Each day brings new tragedy. A small child is diagnosed with leukemia and undergoes extensive medical treatment only to die in his mother’s arms. A newlywed couple is killed by a drunk driver as they leave for their honeymoon. A faithful missionary family is attacked and killed by the very people they were ministering to. Thousands are killed in a terrorist attack. Hundreds drown in a tsunami, while scores of others are buried in an earthquake.
Man’s usual response to tragedy is to blame God. Is this the proper response? Is God responsible for human suffering? Is God cruel, capricious, and vindictive, or is He too weak to prevent suffering? If God truly is sovereign, how can He let someone He loves suffer? In this powerful booklet, Dr. Tommy Mitchell provides the answers to these questions and more, ending with a detailed presentation of the gospel.
Ken Ham’s popular approach to evangelism, based on Paul’s methods for reaching the Greeks of his era, is now summarized in a pocket-sized booklet. Great tips for personal evangelism.
From Evolution to Creation
What would it be like to have your beliefs completely transformed? Read this fascinating interview with Dr. Gary Parker as he describes his journey from being a devout evolutionist to believing in the Creation story and the God of the Bible. Learn what convinced him to change his viewpoint, as well as the evidences he found which back up creation and the Bible.
Is There Really a God?
Is it logical to accept the existence of such an eternal being as the God of the Bible? Can modern Science, which has produced our technology of computers, space shuttles, and medical advances, even allow for such a notion?
Today, a large proportion of the population, including many leading scientists, believes that all plants and creatures, including the intelligent engineers who make watches, cars, etc., were the product of an evolutionary process – not a Creator God. Bit is this really a defensible position?
Millions of Year and the Downfall of the Christian West
Most people have heard that:
- the idea of long ages of evolutionary change originated with Charles Darwin.
- Christians started to reject the literal accounts of a worldwide flood and the creation after Darwin.
- no serious scientist today doubts that the earth is millions/billions of years old.
This brief booklet will show that these widely held beliefs are actually wrong. It will reveal that:
- the idea of a very old earth was popular in scientific circle even before Darwin.
- many scientists (including many professing Christians) started to reject a straightforward reading of Genesis many decades before Darwin’s Origin of Species was published.
- there are thousands of practicing scientist today who believe in a young age for the earth.
Six Days or Millions of Years?
Did everything come into existence over six days or millions of years? Why is it important? If the days of creation are really millions of years, then the gospel message is undermined at its foundation because it puts death, disease, thorns, and suffering before the Fall .
How are we meant to understand the Bible? Does Genesis 2 contradict the account found in Genesis 1? How could there be day and night cycles for the first three days before the sun was created on the fourth day? Find out the answers to these (and other) questions about the days of creation in Genesis 1.
Was There Really a Noah’s Ark and Flood?
The account of Noah and the Ark is one of the most widely known events in the history of mankind. Unfortunately, like other Bible accounts, it is often taken as a mere fairy tale.
The Bible, though, is the true history book of the universe. In that light, the most-asked questions about the Ark and Flood of Noah can be answered with authority and confidence.
Here are just a few more of the most-asked questions that are answered in this concise and easy-to-read booklet. How large was Noah’s Ark? Where did all the water come from and where did it go? Were there dinosaurs on the Ark? How did all the animals fit…and more! This pocket-sized witnessing tool is great for skeptics and unbelievers.
The Seven C’s of History
Unlike any tract you’ve ever seen before! The Seven C’s of History exposes the greatest challenge to people accepting the gospel today. Western culture mocks the Bible as an outdated book of myths, and the church, by and large, has bolstered this impression by accepting the secular teaching of millions of years and evolutionary ideas.
From Genesis 1, the Bible is God’s revealed history—the framework from which we can understand the world’s sinful condition and its solution. The Seven C’s of History summarizes Answers in Genesis’ basic message, which is also the storyline for the Creation Museum—Creation, Corruption, Catastrophe, Confusion, Christ, Cross, and Consummation.
Also handy as an evangelistic tool to share with family and friends.
