Not for everyone
18 January 2006
Nevertheless, many people in leadership recognize the importance of the creation/evolution issue in hotting-up the ‘culture wars’—i.e. in raising the standing of the Christian worldview in our culture. They also recognize that it is vital to keep up-to-date and appreciate how TJ examines issues from different perspectives.
Increasingly, professionals are turning to TJ—biologists, geologists, astronomers, agriculturalists, health workers, educators, teachers, lawyers, theologians, linguists, etc. Most professionals recognize the value of continuing education and want to be equipped to make informed contributions from a Christian perspective as opportunities arise.
Another important contingent of TJ readers is often under-recognized but highly influential. These are the mothers, fathers, pastors, Sunday school teachers, youth workers, etc., who are training up the next generation of Christian leaders. Anyone who has finished high school finds they have little problem with most of the articles in an issue—plus they see their knowledge and understanding grow rapidly.
Readers continually send in positive, unsolicited feedback:
‘Thanks for your continued collective labours with TJ. I was especially impressed with the last issue, which was crammed with stimulating articles’ (Charles S).
‘Of all the journals which I receive I only look forward to receiving one—TJ’ (Don M).
‘Thanks for a great journal. It is a wonderful source of information to me even after 40 years of creationist studies’ (Jack S).
‘… it was the best book review I had ever read from TJ. Unfortunately, you people couldn't leave well enough alone and have simply outdone yourselves again!’ (Julius A).
The current issue (19(3)) of TJ maintains the same genre with stimulating and helpful articles. One highlight is David DeWitt’s analyses of some of the latest DNA research, which demolishes the claim, continually repeated by evolutionists, that the chimpanzee is our closest living relative.
Also, in TJ 19(3):
- Inherited biological information—the final installment of a 3-part overview. Shows how the control of information transfer and change destroys the very possibility of evolution.
- A striated pavement find in North Africa. Implications for creationist Ice Age models.
- Flood-transported quartzites east of the Rocky Mountains. What are they? Why are they such powerful evidence for the Genesis Flood?
- The speed of matter—the speed of light has been a challenge for creationist cosmologies, but what about the speed of matter?
- Dinosaur soft tissue discovery: skeptics’ objections to the powerful age arguments refuted.
- The case of David Duke—Darwin’s influence on modern racist and white supremacist groups.
- Cosmological expansion. Ways to include it in a creationist cosmology.
- Ubiquitin—new classes of this protein, identified unexpectedly, pose an irreducibly complex problem for evolution.
- Book reviews including Music to Move the Stars, by Jane Hawking, Stephen Hawking’s former wife of 25 years.
- Letters and discussion, including Alaskan dinosaur, baraminology and the original created kind, plus dinosaur eggs and the post-Flood geological boundary.
TJ is packed with empowering information to keep you in the lead.
(Advance notice: the in-depth journal will become even better with issue 20(1) which will launch the new design and name, Journal of Creation.)
