Next Thursday in our weekly book series, we will begin to feature a book that was released last fall as an outreach to students in the public schools. Evolution Exposed was written as a “survival guide” for Christian students who enter into the humanist temples that are the government-run schools in America. Evolution is presented in classrooms across the country—and around the world—as the only “scientific theory” able to explain the variety of life seen on earth. This book exposes the false assumptions of the bankrupt theory of evolution and gives the glory back to God.
When the book was first made available last fall, it sold 25,000 copies in just a few weeks. With over 45,000 sold since last fall, this book is an invaluable tool in the hands of Christian students willing to stand up for their faith amid the evolutionary indoctrination of the public schools.
I just completed speaking to a public high school Christian club. I gave each one in attendance a copy of "Evolution Exposed" along with a brief explanation on how it should be used.
The response was outstanding. Many shared how they wanted to get right into the book. They also devoured the tracts from AIG as well.
I'm grateful for this opportunity and the blessing God provided.

Evolution Exposed is intended to serve as a reference book for students, parents, and teachers who are interested in knowing where and how evolutionary content is being taught in the most common biology textbooks. Each chapter of the book covers its topic by explaining the concept from the perspectives of both an evolutionist and a biblical creationist. Every evolutionary concept covered is referenced by page number in three of the most commonly used biology textbooks (published by Holt, Glencoe, and Prentice Hall). Each of the evolutionary concepts is then refuted and web links are given for more in-depth study of the concept from a biblical perspective and using sound scientific principles. All of the referenced articles are summarized and indexed for quick access. Links to the articles are provided for those wishing to get the in-depth explanations and examples.
Along with the book, a new companion website, www.EvolutionExposed.com, offers direct links to the book’s reference articles, as well as other information about the book outreach project. The full text of the book will be published there, chapter by chapter, in the coming weeks, linked from the Answers in Genesis main site. Students can explore the EvolutionExposed.com site to learn about their rights in the public school classrooms and more about the author’s background as a former evolutionist who taught in the same public schools using these books being refuted.
The website will also offer updated articles that provide new ammunition in the battle over origins as our understanding of God’s creation continues to grow. Testimonies of how the book has impacted the lives of people around the country will be shared (we would love to hear from you in the feedback section, too).
A large portion of the books have gone out in cases through a special promotional price of just $3.99 per book for 30 books. Many have distributed these books to youth groups, after-school clubs, and directly to public school students in their communities. The book also makes a great gift for grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or neighbors to help support students in their faith or to show non-Christians that there is another explanation that they do not get to hear in the public schools.
We are especially excited to tell you that Liberty University is sponsoring the grand prize in our Research Paper Challenge this year. Using Evolution Exposed and other resources to write a research paper, students ages 14–21 have the opportunity to win a $50,000 scholarship, laptops, and other great prizes. For more information see Research Paper Challenge 2007 page.
Along with the new Answers Education Online courses aimed at equipping members of the church to “always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you” (1 Peter 3:15), Evolution Exposed is another weapon to battle against both compromise in the church and indoctrination in the public schools.
Note from the author
I just want to thank everyone for their prayers and support of the Evolution Exposed project. Through your efforts nearly 50,000 copies of the book have been put into the hands of teachers, students, and parents all over the country. God has given me a passion for reaching out to the youth in our culture and I appreciate all that the supporters of AiG have done to bring glory back to God for the wonders of His creation. I pray that this online version of the book will make it possible to reach many more young people with the hope and truth we can find in God’s Word.
