Creation or evolution? Did God speak everything into existence or was it all made through natural processes? Does it really matter, anyway? Dr. Jeff Duncan, the newly hired biology professor at Grogan University, is about to discover the truth. The Genesis Creation, Noah's Ark, the Tower of Babel...Jeff was taught all the classic Bible stories as a child, and although he accepted them at face value, he was never taught how to defend his faith, nor were his Sunday school teachers able to provide answers to the many questions he asked. Faced with a series of life-altering events, Jeff is forced to choose between his childhood faith and the evolutionary biology he learned in college and has now been hired to teach. If the historical accounts in Genesis are not true, then what about the rest of the Bible? Jeff begins to question everything he had been taught as a child and almost denies his faith altogether, but God has something else in store for him. Why couldn’t Jeff ever establish a firm foundation as a child and understand his faith back then? Shouldn’t the people who were teaching him in church every Sunday be able to answer his questions? Were his Sunday school teachers deceiving him all those years by just telling about Bible “stories,” or, now as a professor of evolution, is Jeff part of...the deception?

Review:

What others are saying: "Steven has written an excellent story capturing the current cultural discussions of our society. He deals with the root issue that plagues our society and he also outlines the solution. Steven was able to interweave the challenges that many of us face in society, if we hold to a worldview based on Biblical truth, in a way that was entertaining and kept both my wife and I wanting to see how he would handle the mess the main character was making." -Dan Tankersley (author of The Rain and The Tower)"The Deception is a Christian book, there is no mistaking it. You will have some direct gospel presentation, miracles, unnerving dreams and visions, Christian conversation, conversion and more. Even though I am a biblical creationist Christian, I do not like the content to be overbearing and distract from the content. I did not feel that way here."  -Robert Sorenson"The section on Hell was a huge eye opener for me. The imagery is detailed and it left me with an uneasy feeling for a few days."  -Pastor Zach Browning"While the world is struggling around us to draw the line between creationism and evolution, the author helps set a stage for what is at stake if we don't go back to the word of God to find our roots." -Melissa Holland"This is a first-time author, so I had no idea what to expect. Overall, I was very pleased with the subject matter, the development of characters, plot, and the pace of the story. I was engaged from beginning to end, with really no lulls." -Andy Montgomery"This story is one that I enjoyed and could relate to. It puts so many real life issues together that adults find themselves in. It is a reminder that when everything around you is falling apart, have faith, and you will never be alone." -Jennifer Henson"What a reader could expect. The book shows how dangerous evolution theory could be. The main protagonist is put under the pressure of his employer (high educated Professor) and the watery preaching of his pastor. He began to see world through the evolution theory which teaches that the strongest survive and weakest die. Thinking more about this he decided that his ill mother should die. Evil entered this man in all directions until he met Jesus." -"Fiery"
