This is certain to be the most amazing news you’re ever going learn about. We found it at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), the creationist ministry of Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. It’s titled Ken Ham Releases Unique Commentary on Genesis 1–11, and it was written by ol’ Hambo himself — well, not quite. It begins with an Editor’s note which informs us:
This article was adapted from a news release that was recently distributed to the media.
That’s good to know, because it explains the peculiar style of Hambo’s post. Okay, here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Prolific author, popular speaker and Ark Encounter visionary [Wow!] Ken Ham has released his newest book Creation to Babel: A Commentary for Families.
That was a link to the book at Hambo’s website. Here it is at Amazon. Okay, let’s keep going. Hambo says:
Between offering penetrating commentary [Penetrating!] and devotional thoughts on the most scrutinized section of the Bible, Genesis chapters 1–11, Creation to Babel tackles today’s most-asked questions about the book of beginnings and addresses the pressing issues of our day, such as:
Can you find evolution in Genesis? [Yes. See Is Evolution in the Bible?]
Where did the different “races” come from?
Why are there diseases like COVID in God’s creation?
Are Genesis chapters 1 and Genesis 2 different or contradictory accounts of creation?
Who was Cain’s wife? and many more.
What an amazing list! At last, dear reader, you can get answers to the questions that have tormented you all your life! Isn’t this exciting? Okay, let’s keep going. Hambo tells us:
Ham, founder and CEO of the apologetics organization Answers in Genesis and its popular attractions the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum, declared: “Our culture has strayed far from its Christian foundations. Families are finding it more difficult than ever to train their children in truth. Our new book presents what most readers would naturally expect from AiG as we defend the historicity of Genesis, but it also offers devotional and theological insights on how to think and live in a challenging world.”
Verily, this might the greatest book in the world — after the bible, of course. Hambo’s post continues:
Ham added: “There’s never been a Bible commentary quite like this one. It’s an apologetics book written at a level that parents can easily use in teaching their children and teens. In addition, Sunday schools and Christian schools will find the book useful in proclaiming the biblical worldview starting with Genesis.”
Amazing. Absolutely amazing. There’s more, but you’ve probably had enough by now, so we’ll skip to the end for this last excerpt:
Creation to Babel: A Commentary for Families equips families and Christian leaders to trust the Bible and discover why Genesis 1–11 is such a foundational, practical part of the Bible.
We know you can’t wait to buy the thing, so go right ahead — and tell ’em the Curmudgeon sent ya!
