Re: A case for Christianity that does use ID or YEC arguments

I read "Finding Darwin's God" a few months ago, and I would have to say
that the tone
of the book is a bit strident -- and I accept evolution. Thus I
wouldn't recommend it to a YEC looking for
a gentle introduction to an alternative Christian view. OTOH it does
give a very good overview of the evidence for evolution
and why evolution is not a threat to Christianity.
