Q: What “little book” has impacted millions of lives?

A: Ken Ham loves to read 2 Timothy 4:13. Paul was in prison, and he asked Timothy, “Bring the cloak … when you come—and the books, especially the parchments.”

Quote of the Week

“It is better for all the world if, instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind. The principle that sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting the Fallopian tubes.”

– Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Buck vs. Bell, 274 U.S. 200, p. 205, 1927.

This reminds Ken about the “little book” that changed his life:

Way back in 1974, I was studying to become a science teacher. Now, I already believed that Genesis was literal history—my father had taught me that.

But I didn’t have the answers about evolution and the supposed millions of years of Earth history. They plagued my mind.

Then I came across a booklet from England. In it, I read that the Bible makes it clear that Adam’s sin brought death and disease into the world. This hit me right between the eyes! Of course! You can’t have millions of years of death before Adam sinned.

This booklet, and now the ministry of Answers in Genesis, has been impacting millions of lives.

Every time I read Paul’s request for “books and parchments,” I get excited to think how God still uses books to change lives today. It’s a great privilege—and duty—for Christians to get Bible-upholding materials into people’s hands!

AiG’s “little books” have also been effective tools in bringing the truth to people’s lives, many of which are available free online. To see a full list of our booklets, visit our bookstore.
