Rethinking Darwin by Leif A. Jensen (Lalitanatha dasa) Softbound, 256 pages, 12.5 x 19cm
Rethinking Darwin: A Vedic Study of Darwinism and Intelligent Design is written for any lay scientist or general reader interested in Darwinism and its alternatives. Over the past few decades, advances in biochemistry have created an Intelligent Design opposition that maintains that the theory of evolution is beset with anomalies. In Rethinking Darwin, Lalitanatha Dasa has collaborated with the Intelligent Design movement's leading proponents to point out the flaws in the Darwinian paradigm and examine the case for intelligent design.
The book explores evidence from the fields of archeology, geology, cosmology, and consciousness studies, and then offers an alternative paradigm from Vedic texts.
Contains several new illustrations by Origins magazine artist Rama-prasada Dasa.

Sri Sri Gandharvika-Giridhari, the presiding Deities at New Radhakund (enlarge)
Korsnäs Gård is the only Radha-Krishna temple in Scandinavia. The Deities were installed in 1980 and named Sri Sri Gandharvika-Giridhari. Although the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust was not here when the Deities were named, it is amazing that these beautiful Deities accepted the same names as the Deities Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur established almost a hundred years earlier in India to oversee his own printing press.
His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
One feature of the Supreme Personality of Godhead Lord Ramachandra is omnipotence. The Lord can act without regard to material impediments or inconveniences, but to prove that He is the Supreme Personality of Godhead and was not merely advertised as Godhead or elected by popular vote, He constructed a wonderful bridge over the ocean. Nowadays it has become fashionable to create some artificial God who performs no uncommon activities; a little magic will bewilder a foolish person into selecting an artificial God because he does not understand how powerful God is. Lord Ramachandra, however, constructed a bridge over the water with stone by making the stone float. This is proof of God's uncommonly wonderful power."
(Srimad-Bhagavatam, 9.10.15, purport)
A new website to shed light
Because Srila Prabhupada's books are sacred, his followers may sometimes wonder whether it is right to edit or revise them after his departure. BBTedit.com examines Srila Prabhupada's instructions to the BBT, and the history, myths, and controversies surrounding this important issue.
