As commonly presented the great battle between science and religion over evolution is intractable. This book maintains that the approaches both sides take in the debate drive most of the fury in the debate. Although the facts of evolution are beyond doubt, the big mistake that many scientists make is to present these facts using a materialistic premise that is not scientifically defendable.
The resulting model for evolution implies that humans arose on this planet merely by chance, that the value of our lives is based only upon the genes that we carry within us, and that our lives are essentially meaningless. Naturally religious people recoil in horror as such a bleak view of human existence.
Author: Rev. Dr. Richard E. Kuykendall--
Even Witches Have Names is a short fictional work based on facts. It tells the story of a Christian minister who was also a witch and the work that he and his wife did in building a bridge between witchcraft and Christianity. It tells the story of Gabriel Seminger’s life and work and in the process teaches the reader many of the rituals of witchcraft, or Wicca, as it is called today. This book is a good read and a good teaching aid as well.
About the Author:
The work that Gabriel and Ava did together did much to help others see witchcraft as a valid and positive spiritual path. More than this, they succeeded in removing the stigma attached to witchcraft and threw out the time-worn stereotypes that were born out of superstition and ignorance.
Gabriel is now dead, but he has left his legacy in the books that he has written that will continue his work and in the lives he has changed. And Ava also continues to teach and carry on the work that she had done with her husband. Though they are now separated by the veil that separates life from death, they are yet united in spirit. And for Ava, because of her belief in reincarnation, she knows they will work together again-it's only a matter of time.
