The Genesis of Germs

The Genesis of Germs

Preview Select chapters available below.

It seems that a new and more terrible disease is announced almost daily. The spread of scary sicknesses from avian flu to SARS to AIDS is a cause for concern and leads to serious questions, such as:

  • Where did all these germs come from, and how do they fit into a biblical worldview?
  • What kind of function did these microbes have before the Fall?
  • Does antibiotic resistance in bacteria prove evolution?
  • How can something so small have such a huge, deadly impact on the world around us?

Professor Alan Gillen sheds light on these and other intriguing questions in this revealing and detailed book. He shows that constantly mutating diseases are proof for devolution rather than evolution. Dr. Gillen shows that germs are the result of the literal Fall and Curse of creation as a result of man’s sin. He also shows the hope we have in the future return of Jesus Christ.
