About the Author:

Phillip E. Johnson taught law for more than thirty years at the University of California--Berkeley where he is professor emeritus. He is recognized as a leading spokesman for the intelligent design movement, and is the author of many books, including Darwin on Trial, Reason in the Balance and Defeating Darwinism by Opening Minds.

Review:

"Here are words of combat-hardened wisdom from a veteran of the intellectual wars. Phillip Johnson obviously relishes the battle and, just as obviously, understands himself to be a servant of the truth and a witness to the One who is the way, the truth and the life." ((The Rev.) Richard John Neuhaus, editor in chief of First Things)

"Phillip Johnson tackles here some of the most pressing issues we are facing today. He writes in the interrogative mood not as an 'answer man' with pre-packaged solutions on offer but as an honest searcher seeking how best to pose the questions. A wonderful primer for Christian thinkers!" (Timothy George, Dean of Beeson Divinity School, Samford University)

"As Phillip Johnson writes movingly about his stroke and recovery, it's clear that God has given him a great heart to go along with his great mind--and this book asks the questions that can help others see that their hearts are two sizes too small. It's full of discussion starters; for example, why don't researchers examine whether those long lives in chapter 5 of Genesis could have occurred? For those who have looked for intellectual satisfaction in all the wrong places, The Right Questions can be a fresh start." (Marvin Olasky, Editor-in-chief, World)

"With The Right Questions Phil Johnson hits bedrock; he establishes us on a firm foundation and equips us to analyze and respond to the prevalent confusion with clarity and decisiveness. If we can't clone him, perhaps we can imitate him and acquire his skill with logic, persuasion and truth." (Frederica Mathewes-Green)

"In The Right Questions the leader of the intelligent design movement broadens his critique of Darwinism into an attack on numerous well-known social and political attitudes. And he weaves into his polemics an account of a great personal trial and its impact on his Christian faith. The result is a uniquely provocative and interesting book. Many readers will disagree with the author on one point or another. There are very few, however, who will not find themselves thinking seriously about matters they have not thought about before." (Glenn Tinder, Professor of Political Science Emeritus, University of Massachusetts at Boston)
