Amazon Review:

"Searching for Adam is an attempt to defend the historical view of Adam, namely as the father of all mankind. Obviously this view contradicts Darwinism, but the over 500 page book is packed full of scientific as well as historical data to defend the validity of an historical Adam as the progenitor of all humankind. It reviews the fossil record for human evolution, the genetic chasm between humans and chimps, the scriptural record, and other relevant topics. A must read."
