In 1832 Charles Darwin sailed as the naturalist on the HMS Beagle. As a result of this voyage, he came up with a fairly simple idea about how all the varieties of animals and plants we see around us could have developed spontaneously. Then he built the theory of evolution on that idea.

Trouble is, scientists in Darwin's day had no idea how complicated even the most "primitive" forms of life are -- how many complex chemical processes have to be perfectly balanced in order for a simple cell to reproduce, for instance.

Leonard Brand understands these things, and he has a knack for making complicated things easy to grasp. This book may not provide all the simple answers we might wish we had about the relationship between science and the Bible, but it does introduce us to the kind of questions that need to be asked. Questions such as, Is it possible to believe in both the Bible and microevolution? Does natural selection ever produce more advanced life forms? How do creationists explain why ostriches have wings and humans have wisdom teeth and appendixes?

Whether you're a "short-chronology interventionist," a "long-chronology creationist," a believer in "intelligent design," or a dyed-in-the-wool evolutionists, you'll find thought-provoking questions and answers here.

But more important, you'll find good reasons to believe that there is a Mind behind creation -- the mind of a God who carefully put it all together ad who still cares about His handiwork. Including you.
