Objections Sustained - Subversive Essays on Evolution, Law & Culture

HE HAS BEEN CALLED “OUR AGE’S CLEAREST THINKER ON EVOLUTION” and the “principal lay critic of Darwinism.” And indeed some of Professor Phillip Johnson’s most powerful writing has been penned in opposition to the most powerful sacred cow of modern secularism. Here, for the first time, are collected several of Johnson’s pithiest essays attacking the idolatry of Darwin.

But here also are his stimulating thoughts on a wide variety of other topics, including scientists who popularize, religious freedom, American pragmatism, Paul Feyerabend, Winston Churchill, postmodernism and natural law.

“[Johnson’s] brilliant analysis shows how Darwinist assumptions underlie current controversies in ethics, law, education and public policy.” - CHARLES COLSON

“In all the vast literature on Darwinism, evolution, creation and theism, one will likely not find a treatment so calm, comprehensive and compellingly persuasive as Phillip Johnson’s.” RICHARD JOHN NEUHAUS

“Johnson fires an intellectual broadside against what he sees as the marginalization of theism in public life” - Kirkus Reviews

“Phillip Johnson could not be boring even if he tried. [He is} one of the most provocative and independent Christian thinkers at the end of the twentieth century. Argue with him, admire him, disagree with him – but read him.” - D.A. CARSON, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

“Phillip Johnson is our age’s clearest thinker on the issue of evolution and its impact on society.” - MICHAEL BEHE, author of Darwin’s Black Box

PHILLIP E. JOHNSON, former law clerk for U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren, is Jefferson E. Peyser Professor of Law, Emeritus, at the University of California at Berkeley, where he taught for thirty years.
