Publisher's Summary

  • Why Genesis remains critically important in presenting the Gospel
  • How the biblical account of Creation impacts your understanding of Scripture and worldview
  • Why evolution does not and cannot fit within the biblical timeline of history

In 1987 Ken Ham wrote what would become a prophetic warning to the Church about the destructive effects of compromise with evolutionary ideas, and how this compromise undermines Scriptural authority and erodes Christian confidence in the infallibility of God's Word. Today we have Christians not only confused when it comes to Genesis and age of the earth, but even the reality of Hell, Adam as a real person, and Christ's own words about creation, marriage and more are being debated in the pulpits across the world. In this special revised and updated edition, Ken Ham again takes the lead in pointing out the looming precipice the Church is rushing towards, how evolution and/or millions of years, is driving away young people of the faith, and the biblical solution that can change it!

©1987, 2012 Ken Ham (P)2014 Master Books Audio (A division of New Leaf Publishing Group, Inc.)

Could have been condensed.

I know the idea is repetition to sink into memory, but I felt like the book was 90% we need to teach this stuff, so "go to our website and find out what to teach" and 10% evidence. I felt like the book could have been at least 20% shorter.

You should read or listen

This book answers quite a few questions and helps solidify the foundation to move forward as a Christian or in your search. It probably could 30% shorter because there is a lot of repetitive content. But nevertheless it was good.

Good, but repetitive

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I wish it went into more detail. Felt like it was a 2 hour book stretched to be much longer.

Any additional comments?

The importance of biblical authority can't be understated, but I wish it gave more apologetic based tools instead of just repeating itself over and over.

Ken Ham Nails It Again - Great Narration Too!

What made the experience of listening to The Lie the most enjoyable?

It's easy to listen to a book when you are hearing Biblical truth. Ken Ham's books are a blessing to a generation who has lost Biblical truth. Hopefully, this will bless many and we will again begin to raise Godly children in this nation.

Who was your favorite character and why?

N/A - Joe did a great job narrating though!

Any additional comments?

God bless Ken Ham and his ministry Answers in Genesis! Narrator Joseph Zieja made for a great listen!

I am a biblical creationist.

The books gives you a firm solid starting point to prepare you to become a 1 Peter 3:15 disciple.

The TRUTH!

Wonderfully written and timely. This book is light in the darkness and a warning ignored at your own peril. It is time for the Church to awaken and this is the call. So join us Christian soldiers and don the belt of truth!

Our faith made valid by it's foundation

Would you consider the audio edition of The Lie to be better than the print version?

It's good to have the printed text before you but I do better in understanding & comprehending it by hearing it in it's original spoken lecture format. I'm hoping it will get formatted to {WhisperSync} for a more enriching experience.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lie?

Ken Ham is just an awesome teacher in backing up Creation with biblical scripture. His wisdom an efforts are a treasure for all Christians in fortifying their faith.

Superb Work. A Christian classic.

This early work by Hamm, updated recently, is a masterpiece of Christian Theology is a rare find in that I am confident that it is faithful to the Bible and leads believers like me to think much more deeply upon the foundation which God has clearly laid in the first 12 chapters of Genesis. It is my hope that others like me will benefit from this work and evangelize more confidently through the Spirit’s use of it to draw all who call upon the name of Jesus Christ to pursue a daily passion for God’s wonderful and inerrant Word.

Faith building

It was great to be reminded of the foolishness of the church to compromise with this cancerous teaching that is killing the souls of many, especially youngsters.

great info

finished it in a single sitting really good and informational. really explains why the evolution theory can't work. It will help you keep informed to counter the lies that I have been told my whole life from the secular scientists. Historical science is diffrent from hard fact testable observable science.

A perfect title

The Lie is just that! It is an insanely biased and one sided (very unfairly and unreasonably) view of the subject. This isn’t a discussion or debate in Ken Hams opinion and so there is no attempt to view in any proper way any of the counter arguments, nor is there any respect given to the people it argues against. The only proof given is presented as the bible verifying the bible (as it would). It uses remarks taken out of context and shown with extreme bias to ‘prove’ the authors points with no serious reflection on the topic or comments. Many arguments and discussions are passed over completely and in their place Ken repeats his very small and narrow minded points again and again. Please use your time to listen to or read any other genuine books on this subject and don’t waste your time here.
