Intelligent design is a big topic of debate in the educational, political, scientific, and religious arenas. But why? Is it in opposition to evolution? Does it represent Creationism? Author and national director for Probe Ministries, Kerby Anderson, explores the arguments, the truths, the myths, and the vital questions readers should be asking about intelligent design.

  • Is intelligent design science or religion?
  • How did naturalism become the dominant philosophy?
  • What don't evolutionists want to admit?
  • Is there a scientific foundation for intelligent design?
  • How does intelligent design compare to biblical creation?

With a clear and detailed presentation of information, Anderson guides readers through intelligent design and naturalism to help them form their opinions, enter into the discussion, and stand on a foundation of historical facts, present day findings, and valuable insight.

Excellent introduction to this topic, from a Christian perspective. Does a good job of covering the areas of discussion, and an introduction to more substantive writings on the various areas of discussion.
If you are new to this area, or just curious to get a more detailed perspective beyond what is presented in sound-bites, then this is a good place to start.
