I would suggest you read a book called Abusing Science: The Case Against Creationism by Philip Kitcher. It is concise and discusses several different issues in the evolution/creationism debate that many people have a hard time grasping in easy to understand language. Moreover, in the course of this discussion, Dr. Kitcher uses many examples showing how science has progressed in the past and, while evaluating the scientific merit of evolution and creationism, explores some fairly complex questions in the philosophy of science. This book would not only help you understand the evolution/creation debate, but science in general.
