Book Recommendation-Genesis and the Decay of the Nations by Ken Ham

This time around it's a short post, and a short book, but one still worth your time.

This book is a “sequel” of sorts to an earlier Ken Ham book I recommended a while back in a post on evolution and creation.

Ken Ham’s major point here is showing how the book of Genesis is a foundation to the Gospel and Christianity, and the importance of Genesis as a result. He considers claims of Christianity and the Bible in light of Genesis and how it is not taken seriously by many—even in the church. Well, ideas have consequences-and when we start to disregard where we came from, and how we got here, we get into trouble.

One complaint about sequels is that they are not as good as the earlier works, and that’s true here, but the 79 pages here are still valuable things to consider as a Christian-where have we come from, where are we going? We should consider that for ourselves and the Church as a whole. Therein lies this book’s strength.

This book also contains a valuable list of recommended reading for anyone who wants more detail on creation and evolution. Ken Ham’s ministry-Answers in Genesis- has a website that is a good source for this subject as well. The articles range from basic to complex for all levels of readers.
