Abstract:

One of the latest products from the prolific pen of the foremost defender of Biblical creationism, the book entitled The Troubled Waters of Evolution, by Henry M. Morris, may be expected to enjoy a wide circulation. The Foreword, by Thomas G. Barnes, president of the Creation Research Society, states the burning desire of Dr. Morris' life, and the purpose of this book to bring everyone a knowledge of the evidence for special creation and the historicity of the Scriptures, in the hope that faith in the true God of Creation will be the result. In the Introduction, Tim La Haye, who is widely known in evangelical circles, places the theory of evolution as the root of each of the various philosophies that are responsible for current social and political problems, a theme that Dr. Morris carries throughout the book. -- https://www.ministrymagazine.org/archive/1976/06/the-troubled-waters-of-evolution.
