Family Devotional & Commentary, with Answers to Most-Asked Questions
PETERSBURG, Ky.,Â â€” Prolific author, popular speaker and Ark Encounter visionary Ken Ham has released his newest book â€œCreation to Babel: A Commentary for Families.â€
Between offering penetrating commentary and devotional thoughts on the most scrutinized section of the Bible, Genesis chapters 1 -11, â€œCreation to Babelâ€ tackles todayâ€™s most-asked questions about the book of beginnings and addresses the pressing issues of our day, such as:
â€”Can you find evolution in Genesis?
â€”Where did the different â€œracesâ€ come from?
â€”Why are there diseases like COVID in Godâ€™s creation?
â€”Are Genesis chapters 1 and Genesis 2 different or contradictory accounts of creation?
â€”Who was Cainâ€™s wife? and many more.
Ham, founder and CEO of the apologetics organization Answers in Genesis and its popular attractions the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum, declared: â€œOur culture has strayed far from its Christian foundations. Families are finding it more difficult than ever to train their children in truth. Our new book presents what most readers would naturally expect from AiG as we defend the historicity of Genesis, but it also offers devotional and theological insights on how to think and live in a challenging world.â€
Ham added: â€œThereâ€™s never been a Bible commentary quite like this one. Itâ€™s an apologetics book written at a level that parents can easily use in teaching their children and teens. In addition, Sunday schools and Christian schools will find the book useful in proclaiming the biblical worldview starting with Genesis.â€
Since the 1970s, Ham has been answering questions about Genesis and defending its accuracy (e.g., his two famous debates with Bill Nye â€œThe Science Guyâ€). He is the author or co-author of more than 30 books, including â€œThe Lieâ€ and the anti-racism book â€œOne Race One Blood.â€ The largest section of the Creation Museum that Ham created takes visitors on a â€œwalk throughâ€ Genesis 1-11. He sees â€œCreation to Babelâ€ as a fuller expansion of what the museum offers, along with presenting devotionals and practical teachings to make Genesis relevant today for families and the culture as a whole.
â€œCreation to Babel: A Commentary for Familiesâ€ equips families and Christian leaders to trust the Bible and discover why Genesis 1-11 is such a foundational, practical part of the Bible. On the Expository Parenting website, a reviewer declared: â€œKen does a great job showing just how important these opening chapters in Genesis are when it comes to contemporary issues. â€¦ [He] has several sections talking about the issue of â€˜race.â€™â€
Published by Master Books, â€œCreation to Babelâ€ at 288 pages (hardcover) retails for $21.99.
