The Genesis of Germs

Alan Gillen. 2007. Master Books, 176 pages

Every year seems to bring an impending threat of a new disease outbreak. The spread of these scary diseases, from avian flu to SARS to AIDS, is a cause for concern and leads to questions, such as: Where did all these germs come from? How do they fit into a biblical worldview? What kind of function did these microbes have before the Fall? How can something so small have such a huge, deadly impact on the world around us? Dr. Alan Gillen sheds light on these and many other questions in this revealing and detailed book. He shows how these constantly mutating diseases are proof for devolution rather than evolution, and how all of these germs fit into a biblical worldview. He also shows how germs are symptomatic of the literal Fall and Curse of creation as a result of man's sin, and the hope we have in the coming of Jesus Christ.
