Darwin’s 200th Birthday

On February 12, 1809, two hundred years ago today, Charles Darwin was born. It’s difficult to overstate the impact that his theory of evolution has had over the last 150 years.

The book by which he is best known, Origin of Species (or On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life), is available in our Harvard Classics and Fiction Collection (71 Vols.), which is currently on Pre-Pub. If you haven’t yet pre-ordered this set, be sure to check it out. It’s an incredible value—about $1.41 per volume!

In light of this important day and the impact Darwin has had on the relationship between science and the Christian faith, we put together a Creation and Science Product Guide, which features all of our titles on creation, evolution, and science.

In the product guide you’ll find three collections and almost 30 individual titles:

The titles are written from a variety of perspectives and will help you grapple with the relationship between faith and science. So be sure to check it out and see which ones might be good additions to your library.

By the way, if you purchased the B. B. Warfield Collection (20 Vols.), you might want to read Warfield’s article “Charles Darwin’s Religious Life: A Sketch in Spiritual Biography” (The Works of Benjamin B. Warfield, Volume 9: Studies in Theology [Bellingham, WA: Logos, 2008], 541-81). It’s a fascinating look into Darwin’s spiritual journey.

    It’s amazing how every time I post a link back to stilltruth.com the post never seems to get through. Such as the link to the Darwin PBB I posted this morning. Not to mention a few others I’ve posted on the blog.
    I’m thinking an overzealous spam filter is killing them.

    Sorry about that, TC. Yes, our filter doesn’t like links very well. If you send something and don’t see it come up, just drop me an email and I’ll go looking for it in our spam comments.

    Were you planning to port some of ICR’s (Institute for Creation Research)works such as Henry Morris’ books and others?

    Guys,
    You must buy the Harvard Classics 71 vols. It is an amazing buy! $1.41 per volume. We will improve our ministries so much by being conversant with the Classics of Western Civilization. By knowing the great ideas of the Bible and philosophy we will be able to preserve our political heritage of freedom in order to preserve the ability to freely speak the Gospel. This pre-pub is only about 60% ready to go, so we need alot more buys. Trust me, my life has been changed by the Bible and the Great Books! We need the education of the Reformers and the Founding Fathers. Please consider buying this pre-pub. You will not regret it!
    God Bless, Scott Bearer
    p.s. call with any questions about buying this: 954-464-0088

    Henry M. Morris book the Genesis Flood would be a great addition.
