Person of Interest: Why Jesus Still Matters in a World that Rejects the Bible, by J. Warner Wallace

“With characteristic brilliance, Cold Case Detective J. Warner Wallace demonstrates the reality and relevance of Jesus to a skeptical post-Christian world. He fingers a Messiah whose ancestry was marked, and birthplace foretold. Circumstances surrounding his death prophesied before crucifixion was even invented. The date of his visitation predicted within historically narrow time parameters. An extraordinary worker of miracles who fulfilled the Law and the Prophets. And a light to the Gentiles so that salvation would go out to the ends of the earth. Moreover, as demonstrated by Wallace, from credible external witnesses, it is possible to piece together highlights of the life and passion of Christ wholly apart from Scripture. Person of Interest is a masterpiece of intrigue identifying Jesus as the quintessential person of history.”

                                               —Hank Hanegraaff ,   Host of the Bible Answer Man  broadcast and the Hank Unplugged podcast—

“A creative and eye-opening work. You’ll be captivated as Wallace takes you on a thrilling journey of discovery.” —LEE STROBEL, bestselling author of The Case for Christ

“If you read this book, you will have to reckon with Jesus, not just as a historical person but as Lord and Savior. This is not your typical apologetics book!”—ALISA CHILDERS, author of Another Gospel


Taking Leave of Darwin: A Longtime Agnostic Discovers the Case for Design, by Neil Thomas

University professor Neil Thomas was a committed Darwinist and agnostic — until an investigation of evolutionary theory led him to a startling conclusion: “I had been conned!” As he studied the work of Darwin’s defenders, he found himself encountering tactics eerily similar to the methods of political brainwashing he had studied as a scholar. Thomas felt impelled to write a book as a sort of warning call to humanity: “Beware! You have been fooled!” The result is Taking Leave of Darwin, a wide-ranging history of the evolution debate. Thomas uncovers many formidable Darwin opponents that most people know nothing about, ably distills crucial objections raised early and late against Darwinism, and shows that those objections have been explained away but never effectively answered. Thomas’s deeply personal conclusion? Intelligent design is not only possible but, indeed, is presently the most reasonable explanation for the origin of life’s great diversity of forms.

Taking Leave of Darwin bristles with righteous indignation. Retired British humanities professor and lifelong rationalist Neil Thomas believed the confident claims for Darwinism. Now he knows better. Writing in elegant, erudite prose, Thomas excoriates those who have robbed people of their right to grapple with our mysterious universe as best they can. I highly recommend the book. —Michael J. Behe, Lehigh University Professor of Biological Sciences and author of Darwin’s Black Box

A brilliantly synoptic, dispassionate overview of the controversies that have swirled around Darwin’s theory of evolutionary transformation over the past 160 years. The more that science has progressed, argues Neil Thomas, the greater the dissonance between Darwinism’s simplistic mechanism and the inscrutable complexities of life it seeks to explain. Thomas’s open-minded interrogation of the implications for our understanding of ourselves and our world is masterly and persuasive. —James Le Fanu, Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and  winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize

In a highly engaging and thoroughly researched account that is at once deeply personal and highly perceptive, scholar Neil Thomas exposes the bold presumptuousness of the Darwinian faithful for what it is, namely, a “modern form of hoodwinking” that fails an honest and unbiased test of history and logic. Taking Leave of Darwin exposes the “science” of Darwinian evolution as scientism and the explanatory “power” of natural selection as the paper tiger of “Nature red in tooth and claw.” Read this book and be fooled no longer.—Michael A. Flannery,  Professor Emeritus, UAB Libraries, University of Alabama at Birmingham, author of Nature’s Prophet: Alfred Russel Wallace and His Evolution from Natural Selection to Natural Theology

A PERSONAL NOTE AND PRAYER REQUEST FROM HANK: Neil Thomas is not a Christian, but rather a brilliant European rationalist and humanist agnostic committed to following the evidence wherever it leads. In fact, he is now open to the “God Hypothesis” — that intelligent design “represents a more compelling inference to the best explanation.” The fact that he is not pushing a Christian or even theistic narrative will make his analysis that much more compelling to skeptics. Join me in praying that Neil Thomas will embrace Christian theism and Jesus Christ before he steps into eternity!
