Word to the wise; organizations that publish hagiographies of their leaders tend to suffer for it.  Ham suffers criticism, yes, and I thank God for his willingness to do so, but it's not like he's being fed to the lions here.

Here's what Bert said: "organizations that publish hagiographies...".

No mention of who wrote it, only that AiG published it.

Tyler, Larry nails it.  It would be worse if Ham had written it, but since he's the head of AIG, he at least created the culture that signed off on this.  An organization that does hagiographies often tends to overlook accountability for their leaders, and that's a huge danger sign.

Doesn't really bother me. Some people really don't like AiG. I appreciate what they do. If you really want hagiography, just read this

Ask everyone you meet outside of your church circles if they know who Ken Ham is.

Regarding the Ark, here is the list of American evangelicals in the 21st Century who have worked out a way to get unsaved people, by the tens of thousands annually, to voluntarily pay money to spend a day walking through a gospel presentation.

1. Ken Ham

I've not visited the Ark. I am a Young Earth (with the appearance of age) 6 day creationist. 

My only reservation is that the clear statement of the Gospel  (Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scripture and rose again) is often hidden in the effort to prove and defend the Biblical account of creation, a doctrine that even the devils believe.

At the end of the second floor and the third floor of the Ark Encounter, guests fill up a large area of benches to watch a video presentation--a very timely relief on the feet given all the walking, and in the second video it is all about how a skeptic is shown the gospel and comes to Christ. Ray Comfort of "The Way of the Master" is shown in the video presenting the gospel. It was very well done, and the gospel message was not a bit clouded.
