    Kids are daily exposed to the theory of evolution by the media and public schools. It's not safe to assume that your kids will reject that theory. It's up to us as parents and Christian leaders to make sure our children know the truth about the creation of the world. With thousands of evidences to prove He created and sustains the universe, It Couldn't Just Happen will fascinate kids with fun activities and examples of God's marvelous works.

    It Couldn't Just Happen is a little book packed with lots of information proving Creation of the Bible over the theory of evolution. Richards starts with the Creation event itself and follows with amazing facts about the human body, animal and plant life, fossil records, weather events, and nature's impossible-to-ignore reflection of its Creator. Throughout, he uses Scripture proofs and without hesitation says the Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of God, and that there is no room for doubting its validity when it comes to Creation, historical Adam and Eve, and the proof of God's handiwork in humans and nature.

    A few cool additions the author adds:

    1. At the end of each "chapter" there are 5 exercises you can do with your children to enhance each topic.

    2. The inclusion of verses from the Bible throughout the book are great. People want to separate science and religion, but these verses tie them together quite nicely.

    3. It is definitely a evangelistic tool. The last section of the book dives into what the Bible says about all the topics, what Jesus taught, and some great comparisons between our modern day knowledge and the past wisdom.

    The illustrations and pictures are beautiful and breathtaking, and I think it's a great tool for parents to have.... after all, there will come a day when your children will have questions, and it's probably a good thing to have a little back up :)

    At the end of each chapter, there are great discussion questions. These aren't questions that have a right or wrong answer but are thought provoking questions that aim to challenge the reader & get them thinking. The incredibly awesome people at Thomas Nelson blessed me with this book in exchange for a thoughtful and honest review.

    It Couldn't Just Happen: Knowing the Truth About God's Awesome Creation By Lawrence O. Richards

    The title states the premise of the entire book, earth, and the universe did not just happen randomly by chance. Inside this book one will find not only strong scientific support of Biblical Creationism, one will also find an intelligent discussion of the theory of Evolution. While the scientific facts presented strongly support creation of the universe by an intelligent being (rather than chance evolution), the book does not only present one side of the story without providing a look at the opposing opinion in the matter.

    I like the format of this book because it not only presents the case for Creation according to the Bible, but it also presents the views of the Evolutionist to compare. I think this is important in education. In order to teach our children to think, and discern they cannot be brought up in a vacuum with only one kind of thought presented to them or they will founder when they leave and are expected to respond to everything which they will find outside the nest.

    This book is written at a level which would be accessible for an independent reader in about 6th grade, although it will work nicely as a read-aloud supplement to a science program for younger children. There are enough color illustrations to make the pages interesting to younger children. I am looking forward to using this book with my 3rd and 4th grade children this year in our homeschool.

    I received a copy of this book for free from Booksneeze in return for an honest review of it.

    The title Lawrence O. Richards chose for this book explains the purpose of it's writing - it couldn't just happen; earth didn't just pop onto the scene and slowly evolve to sustain life as we know it today. Through a look at many facets of life on earth - from the earth itself, its place in the solar system, various creatures, and our own human bodies, Richards refutes various components of the Theory of Evolution. The book is obviously written from a creationist point-of-view. With chapters full of gorgeous photographs, Richards shares various facts about earth and the things it contains and how those facts prove that things couldn't just happen - there was a master plan and a creator behind everything - from the largest planet to the smallest cell.

    While the book is marketed as a children's book, I believe it's better suited for 6th grade and above. It could easily be used in a homeschool setting, with easy-to-read sections, colorful photos, and follow-up activities at the end of each chapter. I liked the writing style and think it would make a nice supplement to a science program. I enjoyed reading it and look forward to using this resource in the future with my daughter.

    I just finished reading It Couldn't Just Happen, by Lawrence O. Richards. It's an intriguing work that describes how Creationism varies from Evolutionism. Although written and marketed as a children's book, I feel it best fits the middle-school and older bracket. As an adult, I even found it strengthened my faith and brought to light facts that I wasn't aware of.

    Dr. Richards, who is a retired seminary professor and has written 250 books, has an amazing writing style that captivated me from page 1. He used scripture throughout to illustrate carefully researched scientific information. The book reads much like a textbook, with photographs, charts and discussion questions. It covers a wide array of topics, such as: the universe, geology, scientific theory, dinosaurs, the human body, and much more. Dr. Richards wraps up the book by making it clear why we can trust scripture about not only creation, but also what it tells us about Christ. It Couldn't Just Happen would be a perfect addition to a homeschooler's curriculum or a way for a public school student to inform his/her teachers and classmates of the truth of our beginnings.

    I grew up in a Christian home, went to a Christian school, and attended church every Sunday. But I still had my occasional doubts about the world and wondered if just maybe some of the science theories were true. Especially when I became old enough to work and began interacting more with people who do not believe the Biblical creation story. I'm not a mom, so when I found this book by Lawrence Richards entitled, "It Couldn't Just Happen" it brought back a lot of my old thoughts. I grabbed it in hopes of learning how to better share the truth with my nieces and nephews, but found that I learned a lot more than even I knew! Richards does a wonderful job of explaining other scientific theories without demeaning them or their originators. The author walks us through scientific FACTS that actually prove the Bible story true. I found the chapter about the intricate details of the human body the most interesting. The vast universe is impressive enough, but God put great details into us as well. Richards also gives specific Bible verses that help the reader remember how we know God created the world and it's not just a crazy belief someone made up. I am very excited to pass this book along to my family members and hope it will help them as well.
