Something is stirring in Madison, New Hampshire. An old battle erupts afresh when students challenge the teachings of origins in their high school biology class.


Can a youth pastor with a love for kids and a group of students with a thirst for truth really change things? The odds are stacked against them, but they forge ahead anyway. As their inspired plan unfolds, it rivets the attention of the entire nation.

Ian Taylor, author of the classic book about creationism, In the Minds of Men – currently in its sixth printing – wrote a compelling foreword for Scopes Retried. In it he said:

“When I sat down to actually read it through, I couldn’t put it down. Parts of it brought me to tears! I was stunned… this was surely not your average creationist literature! … Held to the page by the story line, by the end of the book the reader will have received a powerful and compelling defense of creationism. While traveling the exciting journey through the book, all along the way the reader is being fed life- saving food – the truth about God’s creation. It is a brilliant concept, and a truly remarkable achievement. I strongly recommend it to anyone searching for the truth in this intense and critical debate.”


“Scopes Retried” has great potential in the home school market, and this email corroborates this belief: I thoroughly enjoyed reading your book! I was nervous at first because I enjoy reading for pleasure, and even though you said it was a novel, I knew the topic could get pretty heavy. I shouldn’t have worried … it reads like a novel! The characters held my attention as did the story line. I knew about creation and evolution before reading the book, but to “hear” both sides so clearly, side by side, and at a level which was so easy to understand … was so helpful to me.
