Written by: Cat Protection Society of NSW

Reviewed by: Sue Millmore

‘Feline Friends – Tales from the heart’ is a collection of short stories of various lengths from cat owners of all ages, such as 9 year old Harry and 11 year old Zoe. Many of the stories feature cats from the Cat Protection Society who operate a “No Kill” shelter in Newtown, Sydney.

The stories are engrossing and touch the heart. It is well known that cats often choose their owners and the stories reflect this. Despite being badly treated by life and humans, somehow cats of all ages endear themselves to that special person who will look after them for the rest of their lives.

The book is beautifully illustrated with photos of cats and kittens with an amazing array of colours and markings.

A great read – anyone who has owned a cat will identify with many of the tales and find themselves moved by the love that exists between cats and owners.

Evolutions Achilles Heel

Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels

Book Review by Robert Lindsay

Evolution’s  Achilles’ Heels

Have you ever wondered about the origins of everything? Contrary to the commonly accepted ruling paradigm of evolution by chance through naturalistic processes over billions of years, nine PhD scientists present convincing evidence for special creation as a viable and even logical alternative. The chapters are authored by well qualified scientists, most of whom once embraced evolutionary dogma. Each of them eventually realised the inconsistencies in this theory. This book shows how the perceived strengths of evolutionary theory are actually weak points or “Achilles’ heels.” Learn how natural selection, the fossil record, the origin of life, cosmology, genetics, radiometric dating, the geologic record and morality and ethics can be explained within a framework of a young creation by a transcendent God. If you have never taken the time to examine the evidence from a creationist perspective, this book could change your life. Could mainstream evolutionary science be wrong? This is your opportunity to decide on what is perhaps life’s most important question.
