  1. One of my favorite books on apologetics is Dr. Jason Lisle’s Ultimate Proof of Creation. I highly recommend it. It’s very easy to understand and very helpful. It deals with the argument over Creation and Evolution, and deals with the Biblical and logical reasons for the Creator. And it’s presuppositional!

    Basically: “…only the Christian worldview (starting with a literal Genesis) can rationally make sense of the universe. Only if the biblical creation is true [and that basically just comes down to ‘Only if the Bible is true’] can we have genuine knowledge about anything.”

    👍🏼 James White had Lisle on his Dividing Line last year and they talked about that book briefly.

    Great episode! Whetted my appetite for more apologetics!
