Whether you are looking for your first introduction to ID, wanting to get know some the key players without buying a boatload of books, or want an easy-to-read survey of the keys issues, this is a book everyone interested in the topic should have in their personal library. Eight scholars and researchers come together to address the origins of life and the universe in light of the increasing scientific support for an intelligent designer as the source of existence. In a manner both straightforward and practical, they describe what intelligent design is and what it is not. "Intelligent Design 101" includes contributions from Phillip Johnson, Michael Behe, Jay Wesley Richards, J.P. Moreland, H. Wayne House, Casey Luskin, Logan Gage, and Eddie Colanter. The forward was written by Bill Dembski and was edited by H. Wayne House.

The entire book is great read, but some unique chapters include:

- An all new "state of the debate" chapter �entitled, "Bringing Balance to a Fiery Debate" by Phillip Johnson explains why the ID approach is superior to other approaches in this debate.

- A great discussion of purpose vs. accident by Jay Richards

- An appendix with a direct rebuttal to Francis Collins' theistic evolution argumentsfor human/ape common ancestry by Logan Gage and Casey Luskin (which deals extensively with the "chromosomal fusion" argument).

Quote

"What I have tried to demonstrate thus far is that the debate between intelligent design and evolution is not just about facts. It is also a debate about whether intelligent design is science. Along the way, I have tried to explain why I think methodological naturalism is not true. To summarize, intelligent design theory really is science because (1) it generates positive and negative test results; (2) it actually explains facts in scientifically standard ways; (3) it can be confirmed by facts; and (4) it solves internal conceptual problems that evolution doesn't solve. These are four things that a scientific theory ought to do, and intelligent design does all four."

-- J.P. Moreland, pg. 61
