His Ultimate proof is....
2) Laws of logic
3) Uniformity of nature
And for each of these there is just not enough "meat on the stick", (not enough examples) of what he's trying to say to really drive his case home.
William Craig Lane, Frank Turek and Norman Geisler do a far better job in their books. They give information you can use. They totally eclipse Jason Lisle. Ken Ham's endorsement in his Forward of this book says "This book is a powerful defense of their precious faith and how to defend it". I don't agree, but then I''m not a big expert like Ken Ham !
Too much of the book is about rules of logic, which is not fun to read. For example, if one is interested in say baseball, one likes to either play it or watch it. But who wants to read pages and pages of rules? No one !
If this is the first book you ever read on this topic, maybe it's barely ok. But this is not the best book on creation by a long shot. It is more of a chore to read, not fun (except for the first 2 chapters). I think if the author would have kept a full load of steam and continued writing in the same vein as his first chapter the book would have been a winner.
Also, the "vein" of the book or "angle" is a response to "Answers in Genesis" web site. Here negative atheists sling their mud. He uses their questions and statements and shows how to reply diplomatically. Actually not that useful. Such people may poke fun at Christianity but will never accept it. They are people who are too far gone and do not represent the ones we will likely engage about their curiosity of God.
I would have preferred he not put the little cartoon drawings in the book. The quality of printing and paper is excellent.
I do not recommend this book. Get a better one.
