This four-color, Gold Medallion Book Award winner is a perfect tool that offers solid, biblical answers to some of the tough questions kids ask about evolution and our world.
"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?"
Kids are daily exposed to the theory of evolution by the media and public schools. Its not safe to assume that your kids will reject that theory. Its 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 Couldnt Just Happen will fascinate kids with fun activities and examples of Gods marvelous works.
Lawrence O. Richards has written over 200 Christian books, including commentaries on every book of the Bible and Zondervan bestselling Adventure Bible and Teen Study Bible, which he did with his wife, Sue.
Although the book covers many specific terms, scientific ideas, and historical figures and events, all are presented in a way that makes sense to lay readers. As someone who has read many complicated chapters from science books in school, I found this book better able to explain the ideas of both evolution and creationism. The more personal tone (instead of a bland scientific lecture style) was a factor in readability and understanding the concepts.
Each chapter ends with a "Just for Fun" section that lets the reader exercise the concepts that were discussed in the chapter. It helps wrap up ideas and helps the reader really commit facts and concepts to memory. Laura Vela, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
Dr. Richards does not specifically support any particular viewpoint on the age of the earth, based on the fact that it is not revealed in scripture. Although he puts forth the 24 hour literal creation day, he also presents the gap, day-age and revelatory day theories as views that Christians can hold to. However, he does make it clear that, based on the scriptures, the theory of evolution cannot be a legitimate Christian view.
