Book Review: The Genius of Ancient Man – Evolution’s Nightmare


The Genius of Ancient Man – Evolution’s Nightmare, By Don Landis, General Editor with Jack Hole is a good resource for students in high school or higher who are seeking out proof in support of creationism. I believe this book has in-depth content on why we cannot discount information that contradicts the evolutionary theory. There is just so much historical content and proof that will give any person reason to reconsider evolution and receive the divine nature of our being.  Content from timing and sequence, advanced technology, music and art, and more are included in this encyclopedia type book. There is also insight into some cultures from around the world, astrology, horoscope and stars. Each chapter includes biblical perspective through scriptures, timelines, and historical content that connects to biblical accounts. The author also enlightens as to how man has counterfeited Gods creations by distorting their real purposes.

This great reference book challenges evolutionist to face the proof and Christians to realize “why” they believe, as they see the scriptures line up with God‘s perfectly placed clues. I would caution, as the book does, that there is very detailed and at times graphic information involved as well as dark but truthful descriptions of cultic spiritual practices. Adult or parental guidance may be necessary as clarity or discussion may help in guiding  less mature audiences through some of the content. Make sure you live in strength of the divine truth before digging in!
