This is the new year’s first addition to our series about Self-Published Geniuses, where we bring you news of authors with a vanity press book in which the author claims to have made paradigm-shattering discoveries, and announces his work by hiring a press release service.
The press release is titled Lonnell C. Stewart’s Newly Released “To God Be the Glory Not Evolution” is a Thought-Provoking Discussion that Calls for a Second Look at Scripture’s Logic. It was issued by PR Web, which describes itself as “the leader in online news distribution and publicity.” It says, with some bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
“To God Be the Glory Not Evolution”: a compelling study of creationism vs. evolution. “To God Be the Glory Not Evolution” is the creation of published author Lonnell C. Stewart, a computer scientist and single father of two from Chesterfield, Virginia.
Wowie — the author is a computer scientist. He certainly seems qualified to debunk evolution. The press release quotes the author:
Stewart writes, “In today’s generation, many have resigned to the idea that we as living creatures have evolved from non-living matter. Many have shied away from expressing their true belief, which is often supported by their innate conviction that there is a living God who has self-consciousness similar to our own.”
Are you one of those with such an “innate conviction” but you’re afraid to express it? This is the book for you! The quote from the author goes on:
“Oftentimes these individuals cower behind the false teachings of evolution simply because those who espouse these theories purport themselves as being the highly intelligent keepers of the wisdom of the universe. Many people find that they are unable to make logical arguments for the true fact that God and not evolution is the true creator of all things that exist.”
This is fantastic! It’s as if the author knows your thoughts and is talking directly to you. The quote continues:
“In this book, I have laid out some of the core ideas that deal with creation as described in the Bible. This book makes a challenge to anyone who is willing to honestly look at what the Bible says about God and creation, as opposed to what is taught by evolution, and to see which makes more logical sense.“
We know what you’re thinking: “Where has this book been all my life?” Anyway, the press release goes on:
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Lonnell C. Stewart’s new book is a prescient argument that gives voice to the unsettling sentiments of many believers who have half-heartedly conceded to the popular theory of the day.
Aha — so that’s who the publisher is. We’ve run into that name before. Here’s their website: Christian Faith Publishing. It leaves no doubt — they’re a vanity publisher. They even let authors pay their fees on a monthly installment plan. Okay, with that, and the press release, we know the book qualifies for our collection. Let’s return to the press release:
Stewart speaks truth to power [Ooooooooooooh!], encouraging others to stand for their convictions as made apparent in the inviolable and authoritative word of God.
That’s all they say, except for a link to a YouTube promotion which doesn’t say much at all. So we looked for the book at Amazon — and we found it! Here it is! They have a “Look inside” feature. The book a full 36 pages long and costs only $10.95 in paperback. Wowie! That’s only about 30 cents a page. There are no customer reviews yet. That means you can be the first!
That’s all the information we can find, but one thing is obvious: You gotta get this book, dear reader.
