Ian Taylor, author of the 1986 widely distributed creationism classic book, In the Minds of Men, wrote this brief review after receiving Unlocking the Mysteries of Creation (2002 color version) in October, 2002.

“It has been said that we all come into this world pre-programmed with four questions: Where did I come from? Who am I? Why am I here? And Where am I going? Clearly, if we don't get the right answer to the first question there is little likelihood of getting the right answers to the second and third.

Petersen's long-awaited new book, Unlocking the Mysteries of Creation, is one of those turning-point books that future Christians will look back to and say, “That was the book that answered so many of my questions when I was seeking to know my purpose in life.” People of all ages ask those same questions and, whether they are nine or ninety, they will find, faithful to its title, these 240 pages of easy-to-read text provide sensible answers in line with God's Word.

Whether explaining the origin of whales or of mankind, every page of this large-format, hard-back book is filled with color and pictures. It's one of those few books that immediately rivets the reader's attention, drawing him away from the banal offerings of the TV.

I suggest that Unlocking the Mysteries of Creation may well be, more than any other, the one book that will prepare the inquiring minds of the next generation of Christians.
