It isn’t possible—nothing can die and come back to life! Well, technically that’s true, but many animals come very close. This mystery and many more are explained in this summer’s amazing issue of Answers magazine!
Dying to Live Another Day
Life often gets tough for animals. Droughts come, temperatures plummet, predators attack—what’s a poor creature to do? This article tells the tale of six animals that sidestep death by “dying.” By undergoing different forms of suspended animation, they wait out the disasters that befall them, biding their time until better conditions come along.

The Forgotten Kingdoms of Jordan

Evolution or Millions of Years—Which Is the Greater Threat?

What Kind of God Would Condemn People to Eternal Torment?
This is one of the most asked questions about Christianity. Do you have an answer? Or have you struggled with this issue yourself? This article points out that it’s the wrong question to ask. The real question is “What kind of God would not?” (by Tim Challies)
Seeing the Forest Amid the Trees
This may completely change your view of ecology! Often we focus so intently on the intricate design of organisms and cells that we miss the bigger picture. The designs of ecosystems, environments where plants and animals live together, are just as complex and awe-inspiring. Ecosystems challenge the idea of “survival of the fittest.” It is the interconnected, dependent relationships between living things that allow ecosystems to grow and flourish. (by Tom Hennigan)
The Barefoot Professor
What happens when two university professors stop wearing shoes, not just for a day, but as a commitment for the rest of their lives?
