Answers in Genesis Bookstore
Answers in Genesis began in 1994 with the purpose of upholding the authority of the Bible from the very first verse), Ken Ham, Answers in Genesis founder, is the author of many books on Genesis, including the best-selling The Lie: Evolution, and a number of children’s books (Dinosaurs of Eden, D is for Dinosaur, A is for Adam, etc.). Recently co-authored books include Darwin’s Plantation: Evolution’s Racist Roots and War of the Worldviews, plus How Could a Loving God …?
In May of 2007, Answers in Genesis finished its high-tech and acclaimed Creation Museum and education center in the Cincinnati, Ohio, area (on 50 scenic acres in Petersburg, Kentucky). The brainchild of Ken Ham, this state-of-the-art facility contains dozens of world-class exhibits — including impressive animatronic dinosaur models and a planetarium — which are now on display inside the 65,000-sq-ft museum. In its first year, it attracted the world's major media and over 400,000 guests!
Each year Ken gives numerous faith-building talks to tens of thousands of children and adults (he receives many hundreds of invitations to speak annually) on such topics as the reliability of the Bible, how compromise over biblical authority has undermined society.
Ken’s emphasis is on the relevance and authority of the book of Genesis to the life of the average Christian, and how compromise on Genesis has opened a dangerous door regarding how the culture and church view biblical authority. His Australian accent, keen sense of humor, captivating stories and exceptional PowerPoint illustrations have made him one of North America’s most effective Christian communicators and Answers in Genesis an organization to be trusted.
Ken is also able to reflect on some of the “hot button” topics of our day (e.g., the breakdown of the society and the family unit, “gay” marriage, school violence, creation/evolution in public schools, abortion, homosexual behavior, lawlessness, etc.) and relate them to the Book of Genesis. In addition, he provides biblical and scientific answers to some of the most difficult questions people ask about the Christian faith, including:
- How can we reclaim the culture for biblical truths?
- Can we really trust the Bible from its very first verse?
- How can we build a biblical worldview starting with Genesis?
- How do we know there is a God?
- Are dinosaurs mentioned in the Bible?
- How can we evangelize more effectively?
- Who was Cain’s wife?
- Why do we see death and suffering (tsunamis, terrorist attacks, etc.) in this world?
These questions and many more are answered in Answers in Genesis's newly revised and expanded The New Answers Book Volumes 1 and 2. There is also an Answers Book for Kids now available on their website. (See link at bottom of page)
Ken states: “The devastating effect that evolutionary humanism has had on society, and even the church, makes it clear that everyone—including Christians—needs to return to the clear teachings of Scripture and Genesis and acknowledge Christ as our Creator and Savior. In fact, Genesis has the answer to many of the problems facing the compromising church and questioning world today.”
I happen to agree completely with Ken on these issues and welcome the opportunity to showcase a few of the exceptional products covering all grade levels as well as adult which are available to you from Answers in Genesis.

Zoo Guide: A Bible-based Handbook to the Zoo
Aquarium Guide: A Bible-Based HandBook to the Aquarium
Museum Guide: A Bible-Based Handbook to the Museum
(especially for a natural history museum)
If there is a zoo, museum, or aquarium within field trip driving distance of your home, don't miss out on making use of these above average guides! Great activity for a co-op or support group too!
Review by Frost Smith Cincinnati, OH:
(Frost is a mom and a staff member with Answers in Genesis)
Make your next visit to the zoo more than just fun—make it factual and fascinating too! You could even start a personal “creation zoo tours” ministry. Featuring more than 100 animals, our long-awaited Zoo Guide includes beautiful pictures and explores the amazing facts and design features that point to our awesome Creator. Excellent gift for any one who loves animals!
I decided to take my eight-year-old daughter and the book on a test drive of sorts and report back, so that we could give valuable usage tips and information to those wishing to use or purchase this book. I found the introduction of the book a good way to prepare for the trip —particularly important to review with your students or children if they do not have this biblical framework.
So grab some sunscreen, a water bottle and the Zoo Guide, and set off on your learning adventure. The book is designed and organized to make it easy to find animal descriptions quickly. The Table of Contents at the front gives the page numbers of the animal groupings, which are also indicated by a page tab system that you can easily see as you fan through the book.
Over 100 animal listings are broken into five categories: Ungrouped mammals, Birds, Cats, Monkeys & Apes and Reptiles & Amphibians. Inside each grouping, the animal descriptions are arranged alphabetically, with one page a full-page photo, and on the facing page, a detailed description of the animal, giving details of its taxonomy, diet, habitat and God-honoring facts about its design.
The Zoo Guide is also spiral bound, making it easy to show the pictures to your child or group as you read the information on the opposite page.
This summer, the Cincinnati Zoo is featuring “Adventure Down Under,” so it was a real treat for us to see (and hear) some unusual animals from Australia, like the kangaroo and kookaburra. One of our favorite things about the Zoo Guide was the “fun facts” on each animal listing. For instance, it lists that kangaroos will stamp their hind feet and growl like a dog when threatened. We looked this up to try to figure out what this kangaroo is doing in the following photo...
Overall, we found that the evolutionary indoctrination, at least at this particular zoo, was not as overwhelming as anticipated. While there were a few “plugs” (see the display below, from the Children’s Zoo), we found the Zoo Guide to be more of a complement to the signs found at each display rather than necessary for a refutation of evolutionary “facts”; although, depending on the exhibit or zoo, others may find a need for refutation. We enjoyed going around discussing on which day of Creation Week each animal was created, and from what “kind” they were descended. This also gave opportunity to recall the Flood and how it led to speciation and extinction (a subject mentioned on many signs throughout the zoo).
The thought processes that this book encourages open up all of nature, so apparent at the zoo in particular, to the opportunity to boast of God’s creativity and prowess even in His fallen creation, to reflect on the sobering effects of the Fall and the Flood, and to realize that the God who merely spoke these animals into existence formed us and breathed into us as special creations in His image. And He is willing to adopt us into His family because He wants a relationship with us, despite humankind’s rejection of Him in Eden. Now that’s something worth considering at the zoo—and anywhere else!
The earth was created to be the dwelling place of man. It is a complex world and its weather patterns affect our lives every day.
Written by retired National Weather Service meteorologist Mike Oard, this set for Grades 4 and up includes a hardback textbook and a study guide. From Answers in Genesis.
The Weather Book will teach you:
- Why our exact distance from the sun allows life on earth.
- How the weather on the other side of the earth affects you.
How clouds form and how to identify the different types.
- What the difference is between a cold and warm front.
- Why you can often see lightning long before you can hear thunder.
- How to build your own weather station.
- How to survive in dangerous weather.
- What the greenhouse effect and the ozone hole are.
- What Noah’s flood and the Ice Age have in common.
- How weatherpersons forecast hurricanes and tornadoes.
- How to read a weather map.
- What our responsibility is to the environment.
Learning about the weather is fun! It will change the way you look at the clouds in the sky. Now you’ll have more of an understanding about what is going on miles above your head. And when you hear a weather report on television, you’ll understand so much more about the world around you!
For ages 15 and up The Weather Bible is a more in-depth look at weather issues that impact our lives in one way or another... Is the Earth warming? What causes tornadoes? What froze the woolly mammoths? One-hundred questions on weather-related topics are answered from the Christian perspective by a physics professor. The explanations are clear, concise, and easy to understand.
The Human Body: An Intelligent Design from Answers in Genesis
When we first examine the human body, complexity and diversity overwhelms the mind. Continuous study and patient research reveal repeating physiological patterns in the eleven body systems. This book describes these patterns and discusses their meaning. It will help the teacher or serious student of biology appreciate the Creator’s design principles and plan for human body. The various body systems are discussed, such as the circulatory system, in the context of these design themes. It teaches about the biological basis for blood clotting, the immune response, recent research on spilt-brain studies, the physiology of flight, the body’s adaptation to high altitudes and much more.
