Whenever I see a book written by Ken Ham; I know the book is going to be an excellent scholarly exposition of the subject. Certainly this book is no exception, however it is not entirely written by Ken Ham. It was compiled and edited by Ken Ham, but the individual selections have various authors and are substantially easier to read then most of Mr. Ham’s personally written material. This is not to say that I do not generally enjoy Ken Ham’s material, just to say that most of his books, even children’s books, are difficult to read and this book is not. In fact, I found it to be a very fast read yet thorough in it’s presentation of the material. It starts out with an overview of the various types of supposed contradictions and how they will be addressed. Almost like a definition of terms in paragraph form, the introduction properly prepares the reader by defining categorical arguments against “contradiction theories.”
While the introductory material alone was worth the cost of the book because it teaches you how to process arguments about the Bible and respond, the book then goes on to specifically address 40 of the most oft cited “contradictions”, explains which category each falls into, and describes how to refute these supposed contradictions with factual information.
All that, and it is much easier to read then even this review.
My Bottom Line: I would pay for this book in heartbeat, and in fact may purchase several copies to give away. If you have been reading my reviews for a long time, you know that I have a select list of books which will be required reading for my children in high school. This book, Demolishing Supposed Contradictions joins the likes of Stepping Heavenward by Elizabeth Prentiss as I have officially added the book to my list. This book receives My Highest Recommendation.
