  Neglect of Geologic Data 

by Daniel E. Wonderly
Copyright © 1987 by Daniel E. Wonderly
        Electronic Version Copyright ©  2006 by Edna (Mrs. Daniel E.) Wonderly

This work is an attempt to enlist creationists in a serious study of the actual characteristics of the earth's sedimentary strata. Creationist organizations are emphasizing some important truths of creation, but they have neglected the data of earth-science research to such an extent that disgrace has now descended upon the doctrine of biblical creation throughout the nation. In this carefully documented book the author encourages evangelical Christians to take an interest in the real data of earth science, and shows them how they can use such information to alleviate this problem.

  God's Time-Records in Ancient Sediments 

We are directing this book to the Christian reading public. Numerous groups of Christians in North America now recognize sizeable problems having to do with the relation of science to the Biblical account of creation. However I believe that it is possible to properly understand God's meaningful world, and at the same time participate in the fallowship which He wants his own people to have with one another. The sharing of observations and ideas concerning God's record in nature can be a sosurce of much joy and fellowship, as well as an enhancement of our lover for God. We hope that at least the early chapters of this work will be found to be inspirational reading, while the other chapters may be used as a manual of important information concerning the earth and the studies which Christians have made with respect to creation.  [From the Preface]

Natural Science and the Christian Faith

       by David Newquist (Physics Department, Tunghai University, Taichung, Taiwan ROC)
        Copyright © 2002 by David Newquist
        Electronic Version Copyright ©  2003 by Interdisciplinary Biblical Research Institute

This book is written for Christians and non-Christians, for scientists and non-scientists, who seek answers about how science and the Christian faith fit together. The focus is on basic issues and "conflicts" that seem to arise as sincere men and women contemplate matters of science, faith and philosophy. Chapters 1 and 2 discuss basic concepts in the history and philosophy of science. Chapters 3 and 4 discuss faith in general and Christian faith in particular. Chapter 5 discusses the relationship between faith and science and conflicts that may arise between them. These chapters form about a third of the book. The next two chapters form the bulk of the book, and consider how we know the God of the Bible exists, and then specifically address a major issue, the age of the universe, that is a focus of controversy between science and Christian faith. The book closes with a chapter on the Author's personal view of the fitness between science and the Christian faith.

        And It Was So: The Genesis Creation Riddle
       by Dallas E.Cain with Karen L. Trespacz
        Copyright © 2002 by Dallas E. Cain
        Electronic Version Copyright ©  2003 by Interdisciplinary Biblical Research Institute

From the introduction:  "God has authored two major works: the Bible and the physical world. As did many thinkers before us, we call these two main works Godâs Book of Words and Book of Works. It is not too much to expect that when his two works address the same subject, they will be consistent. Where there appear to be inconsistencies, we are not looking at an error; we are looking at a riddle. At first glance, the inconsistencies may seem impossible to figure out. But once the inconsistencies are properly understood, the answer, like the answer to a riddle, is clear, and everything falls neatly into place."

        Evolution: Nature and Scripture In Conflict?
       by Pattle P. T. Pun (Professor of Biology, Wheaton College, Wheaton, IL)
        Copyright © 1982 by The Zondervan Corporation, Grand Rapids, Michigan
        Electronic Version Copyright ©  2002 by Interdisciplinary Biblical Research Institute

From the forward: "Dr. Pun's book deals with both the factual data and the probable mechanisms involved in bringing living organisms onto the planet. The intricacies of cell biology and gross anatomy are presented in concise statements that show the significance of such knowledge. The evidence leads the author to conclude that there has been some descent with modification following the creation of the original species. However, Dr. Pun does not accept the total theory of evolution even in its so-called theistic form. This volume is especially commendable for stating alternative viewpoints and evaluating each. . . . Material not readily found in popular textbooks is presented, and even advanced students of origins will find material not usually dealt with in many courses dealing with creation and evolution. For example, the volume contains a fascinating account of Genesis contrasted with Babylonian stories of creation; judgments on methods of dating the age of the earth and Christian views correlating Genesis with conclusions of the geochronologists; history of the growth of ideas in both theological and scientific areas; and conclusions based on "empirical adequacy" and "rational coherency," which are two of the author's criteria."

John Wiester, The Genesis Connection (1999 Reprint)

(From the Introduction) This book is intended to present the big picture -- the major events in the history of the Cosmos, the planet Earth, and life upon it. It presents the latest scientific evidence as to how the Universe came into being and how the Earth came to possess its waters and its lands. It studies how life started and traces the fossil record of major life forms in the seas, in the air, and on the land. It deals extensively with the controversial origins of mankind. It is intended to enable the reader to compare the major events in cosmic, geologic, and biologic history with the biblical account of creation. Its major focus is on the vast panorama of history from the beginning of time to the advent of human life.

About IBRI:

The Interdisciplinary Biblical Research Institute is a group of Christians who see a desperate need for men and women convinced of the complete reliability of the Bible who will:
     (1) get training both in Biblical studies and in some other academic discipline, and
     (2) use this training to help other Christians deal with the many areas where non-Christian teaching is so dominant today.
We believe that such trained people can be effective in removing many stumbling blocks that keep others from the Gospel.
