Peleg’s Log!

New Cover! — Plus Better Late than Never!
Greetings!

When we first launched Peleg’s Log I promised that it would be infrequent and sporadic—but I never intended to wait for more than a year between issues!

Needless to say, a great deal has happened both personally and professionally in the intervening time, but currently there is a lot of excitement and activity that we wanted to share.

First, the publisher has created a new cover for the Fourth Edition of The Days of Peleg—to coincide with the soon-to-be released, The Days of Laméch. They wanted the cover art to be similar, since Lamech is a prequel, and they plan to market both books as a set.

Secondly, our goal is to have The Days of LamĂ©ch available from all distributors by June. Yes, June of 2011. I know we were referring to 2010 when we said “spring” in our previous log, but unfortunately those “personal and professional” issues forced everything back one year.

I have received numerous requests and a great deal of encouragment concerning LamĂ©ch—including a few exhortations from Facebook friends telling me to get off of FB and get writing! We are happy to say that the final sections are at the editor’s and we will be posting additional excerpts, plus, as soon as we get the new cover from the publisher, we’ll let you know!

I want to encourage everyone who is on Facebook to “like” the Peleg Fan Page if you have not done so already, and to also “like” the Barnes & Noble Peleg page as well:

To help promote The Days of Laméch we would like to create a contest or some kind of marketing hook. If anyone has any ideas, please let us know.

Finally, I want to thank all of you so much for your support, encouragement, and patience. I consider each one of you a friend – whom I am both honored and humbled to serve.

I hope you enjoyed this edition of Peleg’s Log.

Sincerely,

Jon Saboe

Days of Peleg Synopsis (Historical-Biblical Fiction):Why Is Humanity Dying?
It is now one hundred years since the Great Awakening, and the human race is finally colonizing the world with new settlements and centers of commerce. Reu-Nathor, High Minister of the Citadel, announces an expedition to explore their new world, and Peleg is commissioned as Chief Cartographer aboard the Urbat.

Peleg’s core beliefs are challenged and his sense of reality is undermined by the new cultures and tremendous tragedies he encounters during his twelve-year voyage.

But he has also been given a secret mission to discover the answer to the one question that no one dares to ask aloud:
Why is the human race dying?

What he discovers forces Peleg to re-evaluate all he has ever known—and also provides him with staggering revelations that will determine the eternal destiny of the entire human race!

The Greatest Hoax on Earth? New book challenges Richard Dawkins on Evolution

March 25, 2010 — “The Greatest Hoax on Earth? Refuting Dawkins on Evolution. Dr. Jonathan Sarfati’s new book, challenges Dr. Richard Dawkins’ latest blockbuster—The Greatest Show on Earth: the evidence for evolution.

Dr Jonathan Sarfati, scientist, chessmaster, logician and Christian apologist knows the creation vs. evolution controversy well. Before publishing The Greatest Hoax on Earth?, Sarfati authored the best-selling book, Refuting Evolution, which now has over 500,000 copies in print.

The Greatest Hoax on Earth? provides a penetrating examination of Dawkins’ anti-creationist magnum opus. Drawing on his extensive knowledge of biology, geology, fossils, radiometric dating, and more, Sarfati thoroughly exposes the bankruptcy of Dawkins’ arguments.

Sarfati maintains that arguments for evolution and against creation sound convincing only when they are unexamined. Accordingly, Sarfati scrutinizes Dawkins’ methods, highlighting tactics which he deems are unreasonable and illogical – such as frequently resorting to straw-man arguments.

“In my opinion Sarfati’s book beats Dawkins’ book, point by point, on all issues.” – Dr. John Sanford, Cornell professor and inventor of the gene gun.

Dawkins is well-known for his strident atheism, for which he needs evolution. Sarfati is known for declaring that the biblical account of origins has abundant evidential support and withstands the test of time.

Unlike some writers, he is able to make the science mostly accessible to the lay reader, making it an informative and educational read that is nonetheless an intellectual feast for the scientifically trained. The Greatest Hoax on Earth? pulls together the most up-to-date arguments against evolution, in defense of the biblical account of origins.
