Bone of Contention
First published as a series of articles in 1976, then in magazine format, this work has been completely revised and updated with new diagrams incorporating current information. Always intended to be understandable to the general reader, this book covers the reasons why a conservative (young earth), biblical view of the creation of our world fits the evidence found in fossils and the world as we see it. It would be easily read by late-teenage children but has enough information to satisfy an enquiring adult.
Fossil evidence is examined, along with genetics and a chapter on the age of the earth, and an overview of the consequences for human history. There is a useful bibliography including helpful websites.
