Abstract:

A layman's guide to the Second Law of Thermodynamics. A powerful yet easy-to-understand weapon in the war to defend Christianity. Much controversy swirls around what is an often misunderstood scientific law, in fact the most fundamental of all such laws - The Second Law of Thermodynamics. Many have used it to show that 'evolution is possible', only to find themselves 'shot down in flames'. But when properly understood - especially the principles that lead to its outworking - it truly is a potent scientific counter to today's widespread belief that everything made itself, 'from nothing to nature'. The author's trademark conversational style combines readily with the many everyday examples he provides. This book will undoubtedly 'switch on the lights' for many mystified by obscure terms and equations - without sacrificing scientific accuracy. - Amazon
