Bones of Contention, updated and expanded ed.: A Creationist's Assessment of Human Fossils

by Marvin L. Lubenow

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


If you’ve ever wondered how to counter the arguments of evolution, then Marvin Lubenow’s excellent book, Bones of Contention, rev. ed., is for you. Lubenow details the arguments of evolutionists, provides insider evidence and critique, and deals a death blow to the theory of evolution.

With over thirty-five years spent researching human fossils, this professor of the Bible is an expert in the field of creationism. Lubenow’s book reads more like a spy novel than text book, as it details the extremes evolutionists go to in order to make their point. The fossil record is not flawless, as professors and scientists would have us believe. Lubenow details its flaws and inherent inconsistencies in a way any reader can grasp. Defining terms, using charts, and briefly reviewing Anthropology 101 for those who may not have had it, this book is not above the reach of any reader willing to wrestle with difficult concepts.

With just shy of forty pages of notes, indexes to persons, sites (sans fossils), and topics, this book is a stepping stone for your own investigation. Evaluate his theories, search out the evidence yourself, and draw your own conclusion. Lubenow does not place himself in the role of ultimate authority, merely as the man with the courage to coalesce his argument for creationism in a scientific community where dissention is scorned. Readers will be shocked to discover the spotty and questionable evidence which evolutionary theory hangs upon.

Such a vast and valuable resource as this book is a must have for any creationist library. For evolutionists with the courage, this book will challenge the foundation which their theory stands upon. I highly recommend this book for all readers from high school and above. An excellent resource for homeschoolers, this book could be a self-contained paleoanthropology course. -- Suzanne Rae Deshchidn, Christian Book
