Before reading this book, I would say my beliefs about Creation lay a little closer to Theistic Evolution.
What a difference this book made.
Dr. Gitt pretty much demolishes evolution (plain or theistic) in 106 pages where it took Darwin almost 500 to build it up.
Dr. Gitt's strongest arguments, in my opinion, are his observations on death and how information is transferred. If information is mental or spiritual in nature, how can it be created by matter or energy? He also gives a few strong biological arguments: How would nature "just know" to make it so that male and female reproductive organs fit a certain way? What difficulties must have already been solved in order for an aquatic creature to crawl onto dry land and actually survive more than a few seconds?
Though he makes a good case for six literal, 24-hour days of Creation, I am still on the fence for a couple reasons that were not brought up:
1) From an etymological standpoint, people can only describe things with their current vocabulary. Whoever the author of Genesis was, though "stage" or "phase" may have been a better word-choice from God's standpoint, how could He expect man to use a word that may not have been coined yet?
2) There is still the problem of 2 Peter 3:8, where one day with God is as a thousand years, and vice versa.
Going into this book, my biggest concern was that Dr. Gitt would toss aside evolution, only to offer weak arguments (if any!) for literal Creation. Despite my two minor points above, the author did a good job of supporting literal Creation, mostly through logical arguments and Scripture.
As said before, before reading this book I was leaning slightly towards Theistic Evolution. Now that I've read this book, I'd have to say that I'm definitely leaning more towards literal Creation.
