    I was very pleased with this book. It has beautiful pictures, fascinating facts and good Bible truths that shoot down the evolution theory. I also appreciated the activities it suggests for kids to do at the end of each chapter. Some are science experiments and others are easier things like star gazing. I originally bought this book to give my daughter who homeschools their 3 sons, but I also used it for a lesson in my elementary Sunday school class one week. Awesome material, visually pleasing, full of God's truths.

    It couldn't just Happen

    This book is targeted toward children and youth. The book answers questions about Science and Evolution.

    To accomplish this, Richards presents 16 chapters focused on basic science issues related to studying the origins of the earth, life, and humanity. He dedicates the last 4 chapters of the book to explaining his view of the Bible and commending the Bible as the starting point for knowledge and study.

    Some topics covered in the book are asteroids, dinosaurs, and fossils.

    At the end of each chapter there is 5 just for fun things to do.

    Book is well worded as well as the Author don't just say take my word for it but encourages you to dig deeper and look things up on your own.

    Another great aspect of this book is it is full of scripture verses as well as Science.

    I receive this book from Thomas Nelson for my honest review.

    This is an extremely informative, excellent book on apologetics - answering tough questions like

    "Did Earth begin with a ‘Big Bang' cosmic explosion?"

    "Does science contradict the Bible?"

    "What happened to dinosaurs?"

    "Is there life on other planets?"

    "Did we evolve from apes?"

    "What makes my body work on its own?"

    I am really really attracted to the uniqueness of this book to make the enormously complex issues like ones highlighted above into simple, comprehensible materials that can be digested at the level of a teenage kid.

    Although originally intended for kids, I find this book to be informative for myself too. As a lecturer and as someone who deals with college students in CF, this book is an excellent book for me to carry along in my iPad wherever I go, because it contains an enormous wealth of scientific information, that adhere to the sovereignty and creativity of our Creator God. To those who are not so inclined to scientific arguments, the materials contained in this book may seem a bit daunting and mind-blowing, but to those who love science, including myself, this book is simply, simply amazing!

    Highly recommended!

    It Couldn't Just Happen: Knowing the Truth About God's Awesome Creation is a book that is geared for older children to answer questions about the creation of the world from a Christian perspective. Children today are bombarded with a lot information that may or may not be true about the creation of the world and in his book, Richards addresses questions and false information from a biblical view. Some of the questions he addresses are:

    "Did Earth begin with a 'Big Bang' cosmic explosion?"

    "Does science contradict the Bible?"

    "What happened to dinosaurs?"

    "Is there life on other planets?"

    "Did we evolve from apes?"

    "What makes my body work on its own?"

    I enjoyed reading this book and getting a taste for issues to come with my own children. I think this book is geared more for upper elementary or middle school aged children. I was hoping this book might provide conversation starters for my own children, but I don't think they are quite ready for the content of this book, as some of the information is technical and a bit dry for younger readers. I received a complimentary copy of this book from booksneeze in exchange for an honest review.

    Science meets scripture- well done

    "It couldn't just happen, knowing the truth about God's awesome creation" by Lawrence O Richards is a great non-fiction book that you definitely want to get into with your kids. If you want your kids to be versed on a scientific approach to seeing God's hand on this world and how yes, even science points to the hand of a creator, then I would recommend you buying this book. The book marries scripture to science in an interesting and fun way for the reader. After reading about the universe and what it's made of -planets, stars, quasars, etc. and their relation to the earth makes Psalm 19 come alive-"The heavens declare the glory of God".

    This book is broken down into 5 parts- the first part is "Earth in our universe" and the uniqueness of our planet in the scheme of things to section 2 and "How life began" and how there is more scientific evidence that points to creation than against it. The 3rd section deals with "Evidence from Living Things" and addresses amazing facts about animals that Evolution simply cannot explain. Section 4 is Humanity in God's Nature- and debunking the whole Neanderthal people "animal like chain of human evolution" aka cavemen situation. And finally the last portion called "The Book that just didn't happen" dealing with the Bible and how it is a "revelation"-"that it tells us things about God we couldn't discover without God telling us." (pg 169) It also links in the science of archeology and how it has shown Bible claims to be true over and over again.

    This is a great book to go through with your children and will give them a good working base knowledge in helping to know that science can be on God's side. I also really appreciated how the author always included at the end of the chapters a fun activity to illustrate his point. It was labeled a "Just for fun section" and it would ask questions to make you think or give you hands on activity like go look at a map to look at how many mountain ranges you could find, etc. And the best thing of all is that parents, you might even learn a thing or two in the process.

    I was graciously provided a digital copy of this book through the Booksneeze program in exchange for a review. All opinions expressed are honest and my own.
