New scientific evidence strongly suggests there was a beginning to our universe. If the universe did indeed have a beginning, by the simple logic of cause and effect, there had to be an agent that induced it.
Through her easy to understand writing, Wickman helps us understand origins of the universe. She takes complex discoveries and interprets them for a non-scienctific audience. In God of the Big Bang she gives readers a better understanding of how Scripture, science and creation fit together.
