Pastor Hinz’s reading recommendations:
Darwin Devolves by Michael Behe
“Critically analyzing the latest research, Behe gives a sweeping tour of how modern theories of evolution fall short and how the devolving nature of Darwin’s mechanism limits them even further. If we are to get a satisfactory answer to how the most complex, stunning life-forms arose, it’s time to acknowledge the conclusion that only an intelligent mind could have designed life.”
Unimaginable by Jeremiah Johnston
“Showing how the world without Christianity would be a dark place, Unimaginable guides you through the halls of history to see how Jesus’ teachings dramatically changed our world and continue to be the most powerful force for good today. This provocative and enlightening book is for anyone concerned about where our world is heading.”
