The Argument: Creationism Vs. Evolutionism. This book is an excellent introduction to the fundamental issues surrounding the creation vs. evolution battle. Written by a former CRS president and college professor, a concise history of the evolutionary concept is provided. The two models, creation and evolution, are compared along with a discussion of the basics of scientific inquiry. The limits to variation possible in nature are explored, and the fossil record is examined to show which model best fits the evidence. This monograph, and its companion volume (Origins: What Is at Stake?), will interest both the layperson and the scientist.
