Logic’s End

Our rating: ***

NASA has discovered a planet that is so similar to Earth that it is believed to be capable of supporting life. Rebecca, an evolutionist scientist who helped make the discovery, is chosen to join a mission to visit the planet. But upon arrival, Rebecca is separated from her team and kidnapped by a group of aliens who live only for themselves and the furthering of evolution. Will she be able rejoin her team and make it back to Earth?

Logic’s End is a well-told story that is certainly a page-turner. Keith Robinson is to be commended for that. That said, the goal of the book appears to be to prove that creation is true and evolution is false. Unfortunately, because of the way the story, characters, and facts are presented, Logic’s End succeeds only in preaching to the choir. If you’re looking for a book to convince someone that evolution is false, this is likely not a good choice. But to strengthen your own belief, or even to plant a seed in an unbeliever’s life, Logic’s End is an excellent read.

One Response to “Logic’s End”

  1. Jordan,

    Thanks for your review of my book. I am honored that you would select it for your website.

    However, in your review you wrote “If you’re looking for a book to convince someone that evolution is false, this is likely not a good choice.” While a non-fiction book would nearly always present a better case against evolution, that was not my specific goal in writing Logic’s End.

    The reason I wrote the book was to:

    1. Encourage Christians (particularly young people) by showing them that their faith does not have to be a blind faith
    2. Challenge non-Christians to consider some of the arguments against evolution
    3. To give young people something that is fun, sci-fi/fantasy that is also wholesome and not based on secular sources
    4. Reach people who don’t like to read non-fiction with arguments against evolution

    With that in mind, I have had several people buy copies of my books to give to non-Christian friends. I don’t expect to necessarily convince them that creation is true and evolution false, but I hope to just get them thinking and perhaps plant a seed. Many have come back and told me that their non-Christian friends found the book very “interesting” (that’s usually the term they use). In fact, one friend told me that his non-Christian friend came back and told him how she really hated the book. But then weeks later, came back and told my friend that even though she hated it, she couldn’t stop thinking about it.

    Anyway, I appreciated your review, but I just wanted to add my thoughts about your comments. God bless.
