  • Click here to read Pastor Steve Damron's review of this book. The author is writing to Christian parents, pastors, and youth leaders to encourage them to review their concept of modesty as it pertains to Scripture. The author guides the reader from issue to issue, such as defining the terms that need to be addressed to showing that God was the original designer of clothes. His premise is that the fashion industry had a design and purpose in the development of the swimsuit. The author shows that “nakedness” had to become more and more acceptable in our society in limited situations at first. As fashion designers and the media were able to get Americans to let down their guard in these limited areas, they could advance further in their attack on Christian modesty. 77 pages. These books are sold in good used condition.
  • Richard Milton is a science journalist from Great Britain.  He is a very controversial author because of his candid approach to scientific topics.  Shattering the Myths of Darwinism takes this very candid approach to the field of evolutionary biology.  Surprisingly, Milton defies the dogmatic approach Darwinists take to the theory of evolution by natural selection.  Richard Dawkins, the author of The Blind Watchmaker, described Milton as a “fruitcake in need of psychiatric help.”  Milton is not afraid to publish his thoughts from the angle of someone who isn’t interested in following the crowds towards the evolutionary mecca that is Darwinism.
