I haven’t read the book Persuaded by the Evidence, but I liked this insight from a reader of the book:
Most people follow the money. In the area of origins science the money is definitely on the side of evolutionary research. There is no government organization or major corporation that supports creation research that I know of.
Yet, in this book we have stories of people who chose not to follow the money. Instead they followed the evidence where it led them: to belief in God’s creation of the earth recently in six days, the fall of the original pair of humans into sin, the judgment of the earth by a worldwide flood, and God’s subsequent actions to bring people back to belief in Him. This path does not lead to money and fame but it leads to Truth. This book tells the amazing true-life stories of talented people who, despite the loss of money and possible fame, chose to follow Truth.
