Simply put, he puts all the worst dreck of modern creationism into one book:
-The implications of the Big Bang and its biological counterpart, the Cambrian explosionCabrian exposion the biological counterpart of the Big Bang?
-The insurmountable problems that are leading more and more scientists to reject Darwinism
-What the textbooks never told you about archaeopteryx, Haeckel’s drawings of embryos, and other icons of evolution.
Not exactly. Nor is it true that Haeckel's drawings of embryos have any place in the modern case for evolution. And those scientist that reject "Darwinism" (if we take this to be mainstream biology, though the identification makes as much sense as calling all of modern chemistry "Daltonism") are in a tiny minority - compare hundreds of people of all names to hundres of "Steves."
Here's the thing that gets me though: according the the fundamentalist Christianity of Strobel et. al., such lies could keep people from eternal damnation. As King James puts it, "Whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life... but he that believeth not is condemned." The insanity of this formula should be self-evident, but the story of creationism makes it undeniable. There's no caution in there of, "If you slander honest scientists in the process of converting someone, they'll go to Hell anyway, so be careful not to do that." The result is a situation where someone who spends a lifetime lying about
thermodynamics could end up saving many souls, but Stephen Jay Gould, who worked tirelessly to promote good science, is now rotting in Hell. This is paradox should make it almost impossible to take an intellectually honest look at evolution and remain an orthodox Christian.
