When you look at the marvels of Earth and outer space, have you ever wondered: How did this all come about? And that leads to that ultimate question: Why are we here?
Guide to Creation is a fascinating survey that explores these questions and more:
- Why is our world so perfectly fit for life yet still full of imperfections?
- What best explains the precision and consistency in the laws of science?
- How should we handle the times when science and the Bible seem to disagree?
This book will take you on an incredible journey for the answers, which can be found all around usin things as tiny as cells to as large as superstars. Along the way you'll learn what both science and the Bible say. A wealth of discoveries await you!
The Institute for Creation Research equips believers with evidence of the Bible’s accuracy and authority through scientific research, educational programs, and media presentations, all conducted in a thoroughly biblical framework.
MarieOklahoma City, OKAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Colorful up-to-date information on 'young earth' creation by top researchers at Institute for Creation ResearchMarch 2, 2016MarieOklahoma City, OKAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4This book is written in the style of the popular secular Eyewitness Books, which has one topic on one page spread, and text fit around the many photographs and illustrations. About 2/3 of the book is divided into Earth Sciences, Physical Sciences, and Life Sciences, which make it easier to use in a science class than other creationist books. Other groupings are Myths and Fallacies (mostly problems with evolution) and Foundation to Creation (mostly the importance of Genesis in other areas). It is written by 12 people from The Institute of Creation Research, including 3 PhD scientists, but the different styles of writing are barely noticeable. The authors undoubtedly consider the Christian "young earth" view correct, however a non-Christian who values Genesis history may be able to 'tolerate' the occasional references to Jesus as Creator for the book's amazing information. The larger font text is probably written for about a 4th to 8th grade level, and the wonderful illustrations make it almost unique among books on this subject. Some of the information in smaller font is probably high school or adult level.
The biggest drawback is that there are NO references! The reader would need to notice the website toward the back of the book (icr.org) and check out the voluminous information there. Or one could use others like creation.com - such information is not unique to ICR. I also wish more ways to handle distant starlight were mentioned. However, these other methods, using general relativity, are not easy to understand.
The most recent printing of this book by ICR is titled Guide to Creation Basics, with a different Guide to Creation book being sold as more in-depth information with references and just a few illustrations.
