Book "Scientific Facts in the Bible" by Ray Comfort

About the book: An elderly lady once left $20,000 and "my Bible and all it contains" to her nephew. The young man knew what the Bible contained so he didn’t bother to open it. He merely picked it up and put it on a high shelf in his house, and headed for Las Vegas.
It wasn’t long until all his money was gone. He lived the next 60 years as a pauper, scraping for every meal and barely having the clothes on his back.
As he was moving to a convalescent home he reached up to grab that old Bible and accidentally dropped it from his trembling hands. It fell to the floor and opened, revealing a $100 bill between every page.
That man lived his life as a pauper when he could have lived in luxury, simply because of his prejudice. He thought he knew what the Bible contained.
Most people don’t know that the Bible contains a wealth of incredible scientific, medical and prophetic facts. The implications are mind boggling…
About the author: Ray Comfort is the best-selling author of more than 70 books, including The Evidence Bible (2002 Gold Medallion Book Awards finalist). He is the co-host of an award-winning television program (with actor Kirk Cameron), blogs daily to hundreds of atheists at "Atheist Central" (http://raycomfortfood.blogspot.com), has debated atheistic evolution on ABC's Nightline and on the BBC. His "Atheist Test" booklet has sold more than one million copies. He lives with his wife, Sue, in Southern California where they have three grown children.

My review: This title could be more properly classified as a booklet, instead of a book, but its content is colossal. It opens your mind to new dimensions that you never thought they could exist. The author did a magnificent job on apologetics of Christianity, and he shows through convincingly examples why the Bible must be supernatural in origin. In thirteen chapters and 95 pages, Mr. Ray Comfort talks about science, book of Job, medical science, genesis, scientists, biology, accuracy of prophecies, astronomy, historical figures, archaeology, historical accuracy and evolution and their relation to the Bible. It is simply astonishing. Marvelous. The way he talks about the compatibility (or lack of compatibility, let's say) between the Bible and the Theory of Evolution is simply blowing minded. And his citation of the words of Dwight Eisenhower is superb: "It takes no brains to be an atheist. Any stupid person can deny the existence of a supernatural power because man's physical senses cannot detect it...". I simply loved this book. It is a must have in a library of any serious  person that believes in the word of God written in the Bible.
I received this book as a gift from my dearest friend Tasos Verdi. Thanks so much for such a nice gift!
