-- A more accessible treatment of many issues covered in Darwin on Trial and Reason in the Balance.-- Teaches good thinking habits to help readers sort out arguments in the creation-evolution debate.-- Introduces basic issues in the evolution debate.-- Nontechnical and easy to understand without oversimplifying the issues.-- Advice for avoiding common mistakes and identifying deceptive arguments.

With All of the Complicated Scientific Debate swirling around the topic of evolution, is there an easy way to understand the basic issues without oversimplifying? Phillip Johnson says there is: the key to defeating the false claims of Darwinism is to open our minds to good thinking habits. Here is first-rate advice on avoiding common mistakes in discussions about evolution, understanding the legacy of the Scopes trial, spotting deceptive arguments, and grasping the basic scientific issues without getting bogged down in unnecessary details.

In the bestselling and critically acclaimed Darwin on Trial and Reason in the Balance, Phillip Johnson exposed the misleading claims of evolutionary naturalism. Defeating Darwinism provides a new and powerful treatment of these issues for high-school students, parents, teachers, pastors, youth advisors and ordinary readers. Johnson aims not just to defeat a bad theory, but to defeat it in the right way -- by opening minds to the truth.
