What’s with the Mutant in the Microscope is a guide for adolescents navigating the waters of evolution and creation as presented in schools today. According to authors Kevin Johnson and James R. White, most people choose biology over the Bible, science over Sunday school, goo over God. This book offers solid scientific reasons to believe God made your world. Using a youth-oriented voice they discuss natural selection, evolution, where science gets its facts, and how the facts of life demonstrate intelligent design.
