“The first Answers Book looked like a magazine. It was an immediate best-seller. People are hungry for concise answers to the skeptical questions of this age, and that’s the strength of The New Answers Book, too. It’s a must-read!”
Ken Ham, President of Answers in Genesis–USA
Since it was originally compiled more than 20 years ago, and later expanded in three major updates, The Answers Book has been a top-seller among modern apologetic works.
It was a book born out of need. “As I traveled and spoke,” says Ken Ham, “I was constantly asked the same important questions everywhere I went. Christians needed a book with concise answers.” Working with associates at the ministry he co-founded in Australia, Ken created a book that answered the top questions about creation/evolution—written in a style laymen could easily understand. The last revised and expanded book was produced more than seven years ago, by what was then Answers in Genesis-Australia. Since then, several of the questions that were asked in the late 1990s have lost their popularity, and new evolutionary claims demand responses to more urgent topics. As a result, numerous experts were again commissioned to create an entirely new book with answers to more questions than ever. In addition to Ken Ham, who served as general editor, the book features Dr. David Menton, Dr. Andrew Snelling, Dr. Tommy Mitchell, Dr. Georgia Purdom, Dr. Terry Mortenson, Dr. Jason Lisle, and others.
Perhaps the most helpful benefit is that each chapter is “stand alone” and can be read in any order.
The New Answers Book covers such foundational questions as: What about the gap theory? Where did Cain get his wife? and Is there really a God? It also covers topics like natural selection, death and suffering, plate tectonics, the big bang, the laws of nature, UFOs and extraterrestrials, the alleged dinosaur-to-bird connection, distant starlight, and more. The New Answers Book even has a section on radiometric dating, including the results of the recent RATE (Radioisotopes and the Age of The Earth) project, sponsored by the Institute for Creation Research and the Creation Research Society.
The New Answers Book is an excellent addition to any library and a must-read for everyone who desires to defend their faith. This book will surely become the standard among creation literature, carrying on the legacy of Ken Ham’s original vision for The Answers Book.
