Without Excuse: Evidence for Creation by God
Methodically stepping through a series of ten sequential inquiries, the author explores the evidentiary basis for explanations of human origins. Original arguments and unique insights systematically reveal the flaws of natural selection and build the logical and rational case for believing that humans were created by God in his image according to the Genesis account.
Scientific evidence confirms, as Romans 1:20 affirms, that God's eternal power and divine nature are clearly seen and understood in the world by what has been made. Those who suppress this truth stand "without excuse" for not glorifying and giving thanks to God as the creator of all things.
Study/Leader's Guides for Without Excuse
The Study Guide, for use by individuals or study groups, provides questions for each Inquiry covered in Without Excuse: Evidence for Creation by God. Additionally, at the end of each set of questions a “Bottom Line” gives the intended take-away idea for each Inquiry.
Questions for each Inquiry (as well as an Overview section) guide students into deeper understanding of each subject. A Leader’s Guide is also available and provides discussion guidance for each question.
The Cave Painting: A Parable of Science
The Cave Painting is an allegorical novel exploring the intelligent design/evolution debate. With special emphasis on contemporary intelligent design theory the novel, together with comprehensive end notes, highlights the key shortcomings of current evolutionary theories in explaining the origin of specified complex things, whether they be cave paintings, or, by analogy, human beings. The fully documented end notes not only provide a thorough criticism of Darwinism but also detail the many scientific arguments for design. The book will appeal not only to those who simply seek to be entertained, but also to those who wish to deepen their understanding on how best to answer one of the greatest questions of all: Where do we come from?
If Evolution is True, Then ...
Most biologists today publicly promote evolutionary processes as the sole explanation for the origin of human beings. Evolutionary processes involving only natural causes support the only publicly sanctioned creation story. This story follows from science practiced as if we live in a naturalistic universe.
What if we don't live in a naturalistic universe?
Can we seek clues by questioning what else must be true if the creation story evolutionists insist we all believe is true? If Evolution is True, Then … explores the implications that logically follow from a naturalistic creation story. Illustrating truth by showing consequences, each short essay will leave the reader amused and alarmed. Both are welcome responses to a theory rarely questioned.

No Adam, No Gospel
By Richard B. Gaffin, Jr. and published by Westminster Seminary Press, LLC, this book nails the theological problem of evolution in short order.
Literally short order! The book is only 29 pages long. Buy it. Read it. Here are some representative quotes:
"The truth of the gospel stands or falls with the historicity of Adam as the first human being from whom all other human beings descend."
"For Paul, redemptive history has its clear and consummate ending with Christ only as it has a definite and identifiable beginning with Adam."
"Without the 'first' that Adam is, there is no place for Christ as either "second" or 'last.'"
Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design
By Stephen C. Meyer, this book is long but easy to read. From Amazon's page, here is one description:
“Signature in the Cell is a defining work in the discussion of life’s origins and the question of whether life is a product of unthinking matter or of an intelligent mind. For those who disagree with ID, the powerful case Meyer presents cannot be ignored in any honest debate. For those who may be sympathetic to ID, on the fence, or merely curious, this book is an engaging, eye-opening, and often eye-popping read” — American Spectator
What Evolution Is
By Ernst Mayr, this book--that attempts to show literally what evolution is—actually shows very well that evolution is an empty theory believed only by natural creationists (i.e., Darwinists, evolutionists) who demand no evidence for their creation story.
Mayr confirms Creation Reformation's view stated in The Natural Selection Paradox, Mayr attempts to describe what natural selection "does" in nature. He answers "who does the selecting?" by contrasting with artificial selection (breeding). He writes: "But, strictly speaking, there is no such agent involved in natural selection. What Darwin called natural selection is actually a process of elimination."
That is, natural selection does nothing (nothing!) to explain the creation and existence for all the survivors (those not eliminated) in nature, and human beings are one of them!
On the Origin of Species
Yes, the book that started it all (after THE book that tells a very different story!), and we like it.
Why do we like? Because we like out-of-the-box thinking that is humble and presented tentatively. And that is exactly what Darwin did in 1859.
Darwin presents his theory with all its flaws in full view. The flaws from a lack of evidence remain today, just not in full view. (This book could not be taught in today's US public schools!)
We need more Darwins!
Total Truth: Liberating Christianity from Its Cultural Captivity
By Nancy Pearcey, this book explores creation narratives from a big-picture, worldview perspective.
“With marvelous clarity of thought and prose, Pearcey explains how modern science reinforces Christianity — and why more Christians should be aware of it.” — Michael Behe, author, Darwin's Black Box
By Dr. Stephen R. Phinney, this book takes a fresh look at one of history's greatest and most effective leaders.
Considering aspects of Nehemiah's leadership ranging from covenant marriage to effectual prayers, Dr. Phinney explores Nehemiah's leadership in original and thought-provoking ways.
Dr. Phinney's books address a similar theme as Creation Reformation: centering on the believer's identity in Christ.
In this classic book, the late R. C. Sproul expertly surveys history’s most influential streams of thought, proving that ideas are not just passing fads―they have consequences for generations to come. Helping readers better understand how many of these ideas have shaped their own thinking, this book will empower Christians to be a Christlike influence in the world.
First published in 1962, Thomas Kuhn’s The Structure of Scientific Revolutions ”reshaped our understanding of the scientific enterprise and human inquiry in general.” In it, he challenged long-standing assumptions about scientific progress, arguing that transformative ideas don’t arise from the gradual process of experimentation and data accumulation, but instead occur outside of “normal science.”
Creation Reformation takes positions outside of "normal science" and challenges long-standing assumptions about science. We appreciate Kuhn's insight.
