Item Description...
Overview
The "argument" that reads like a conversation about life! Is there archaeological evidence for the New Testament? Did the universe "hatch" from a "cosmic egg"? What does the fossil record imply about the existence of God? Is design inferred by the existence of information? Since the Enlightenment, spirited debates about the existence of God have captured the public's imagination. Scholars, philosophers, and scientists have grappled with the "evidence" that God exists, or doesn't. Today, some of the world's best minds-in a variety of disciplines-grapple with whether there is any real purpose to our lives. Yet not only do many scientists believe in the God who created us with purpose, they also understand that what we do in the here and now has consequences in the next life. John Ashton has compiled a group of essayists who specialize in fields such as archaeology, astronomy, biblical scholarship, and more. The result is a fascinating exploration of an age-old question, sure to intrigue believers and skeptics alike

Publishers Description
John Ashton, the editor who brought us In Six Days and On the Seventh Day, has done it again with this compelling new book that is a must-read for all Christians. In this exciting new book, Ashton brings together the evidence of 24 scholars from the fields of science, archaeology, and philosophy to present an irrefutable argument for the existence of God.

A Negative Review  Jan 29, 2007
A Christian friend bought this book for me as a present. I started reading it with an open mind but only managed to read the first 4 essays within. I have a high school education of Chemistry, Biology, Physics and am currently doing a PhD in Mathematics. I say this with all honesty: every time I read a piece of the book and put it down, I felt dumber!

The simple truth is that the "experts" who wrote each of the first four essays really have no idea. They often make very direct false scientific statements. Meanwhile they propose that they are "scientific". I then flipped half way through the book and read a paragraph where the writer was trying to suggest that radioactive decay can be sped up. Almost all scientists understand that it is a random process that can not be changed. Therefore, the half-life of radioactive decay can not be changed (sped up or slowed down).

If you are a Christian who is wishing to make yourself feel intelligent whilst upholding your faith, this book is for you. However, if you are an independent scientific thinker, I would not recommend this book!
 
An excellent read  Apr 11, 2006
The Big Argument is a response to the arguments used by atheists to try to defend their position. As I have read much atheist literature, I am very aware of their basic arguments, which boil down to the claim that evolutionism puts God out of a job, the existence of evil, and the putative problems with the Bible. All of these arguments are dealt with, in my opinion, fairly well in this 403 page fine print book. The advantage of this work is, 24 scientists, professors, and professional writers each deal with their area of expertise. As a result, the book is a well written, authoritative well thought out summary of the topic focused on in each chapter. This scholarly work was edited by the highly successful author, John Aston, to be assessable to the educated layman. The 18 Ph.D's included cover, not only the science, but the theological issues as well. This collection of writings will be of interest to, not only scientists, but anyone interested in intelligent design, creationism, evolution, theology, and science in general. One fact that surprised me was that there are only 24 well established dinosaur genera. I had assumed that many more than this existed. Also, the information in the section on the immune system was new to me. No gradual progression of the immune system exists in the natural world (and I checked the references given to support this claim). Several very different types exist, but all are enormously complex.
