This is, quite simply, the best book I’ve read in a long time. Dr. Meyer does a great job of explaining the wonders of the information content of DNA and the cell as simply as possible whilst arguing that intelligent design theory is no more than “inference to the best explanation”. The content may be challenging for those who are not experts in the field, but it is well worth the extra effort it may require.

Dr. Behe, who became famous for his description of irreducible complexity in Darwin’s Black Box, goes further in this very readable book. Here he engages on a search for the edge of evolution—the most change that can be produced by random mutation and natural selection. Although Dr. Behe accepts common descent, this logical look at several biological systems, including the adaptations of humans and the malaria parasite in response to each other, clearly indicates that the evolutionary mechanism is not yet “a fact”.

This short and engagingly-written book comes in two versions: one for scientists and one for those who prefer their books Lite. I recommend the latter! Dr. Johnson has doctorates both in chemistry and in computer and information sciences and, according to Dr. Lyle Reibling, thus “interweaves the natural sciences with the mathematical sciences in a discussion of scientific reality that continues to be debated…”

Here John West, who has a PhD in government and has worked in public policy and political science, describes how Darwinism has negatively impacted American culture and society. He backs his argument up with extensive research, making this a compelling read.

A very readable book, outlining how science has advanced since the time of Darwin and proposing that the complexity found in the biochemical machines within the cell can only have an intelligent origin. A fascinating book for science majors and, indeed, for anyone.

In this highly organized book, Dr. Wells goes through the main evidences cited in textbooks as being in support of evolution and shows how each are deceptive in some way. An important books for educators. and students to read.

A difficult book, but well worth the effort. Dr. Dembski has doctoral degrees in mathematics and philosophy and a degree in theology and is well able to address both the philosophical and the scientific aspects of intelligent design theory.
William Dembski – Intervarsity Press
An excellent introduction to current thinking by experts in intelligent design. This is a compilation of essays by scientists and scholars who are skeptical of Darwinian evolution. The argument is addressed from all sides: biochemistry, philosophy, history, archeology, and more.
William Dembski – Intervarsity Press
An allegorical novel that illustrates the improbability of naturalistic evolution and shows what happens to a student who questions the evolutionary paradigm. This book is fictional, interesting and easy to understand. At the end of the book there is a helpful series of notes that give additional information about the issues.

This is an autobiographical story that covers the famous scientist’s journey from atheism to belief in God under the influence of the writings of C.S. Lewis. In this book, Dr. Collins briefly covers various positions with regard to science and faith and decides that he is most comfortable with the views of theistic evolutionists.
Francis Collins – Simon and Schuster, Inc.
In this book, Mr. Strobel tells the story of his search for God, how being taught evolution led to his rejection of faith and how interactions with leading proponents of Intelligent Design led him to become a Christian. Through his journey, Strobel also becomes an intelligent design advocate.
Lee Strobel – Zondervan Publishing
An informative book that is intended to impartially survey the different theories about evolution and the origin of life. The authors aim to leave out the philosophical and religious issues and give a useful bibliography of major works on this issue.

A peer-reviewed biology textbook written to supplement the one-sided information given in the biology books used in school. This book gives a thorough explanation of neo-Darwinism, both its strengths and its weaknesses.

Hailed by Behe as one of the books that will “topple Darwin’s theory,” the Design of Life contains explanations of the ideas that are foundational to ID theory. Drs. Wells and Dembski give the scientific evidence that will allow one to evaluate the truth of Darwinism and ID in an intellectually honest manner.

Written by an Oxford University don for a non-scientific audience, this well-organized book explains fundamental ID issues and their implications. Dr. Lennox is known for his interactions with Richard Dawkins and, as such, addresses some of Dr. Dawkins arguments in this book.

The story of how confirmed atheist Anthony Flew evaluated the evidence through logic and became convinced that there is a God. Dr. Flew sees evidence for ID in DNA and says that we must “follow the evidence wherever it leads.”
Anthony Flew and Roy A Varghese – Harper Collins
This book convincingly demonstrates that science is profoundly influenced by religious ideas. He shows how theological naturalism adversely affects the evaluation of scientific ideas and suggests that moderate empiricism may be preferable.
Cornelius Hunter – Brazos Press
An exploratory book that reads like a detective story as it tries to elucidate the origin-of-life by looking at the evidence. In particular, the anonymous author describes the apparent teleology found in molecular machines and shows how nanotechnology is now imitating biology.
