The book 'Made in Heaven' surprised me. The book is published by Master Books, a division of New Leaf Publishing Group. Master Books specializes in Christian apologetics books for people of all ages. When I received my copy of the book, its format suggested that it might be a book aimed at young children_it is not. I found myself fascinated with the subject matter and I actually learned a lot about many different fields of scientific research.
'Made in Heaven' was written by Ray Comfort and Jeffrey Seto. Ray Comfort is a well-know apologist/evangelist who has written many books, developed a successful witnessing training program (The Way of the Master), and co-hosts a Christian evangelism television show with actor Kirk Cameron. Jeffrey Seto is an aerospace engineer with an engineering degree in aerospace, an electrical engineering diploma in avionics, and he is a senior member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
The book shows how many scientific advancements and inventions were made by first studying God's creation and learning from it. Then scientists reverse engineered, to the best of their ability, something that was modeled from nature. The book showed many different examples of God's incredibly brilliant designs. How could anyone continue to believe that these designs came about by chance?
On a purely visual level, the photographs were simply amazing. Close-up shots of wasps, the human eyeball, Velcro, and other sites humans very rarely get to see are abundant within the pages of this book. There are some truly amazing photos.
The majority of 'Made in Heaven' reveals to us God's amazing handiwork seen in plants, animals, insects, fish, birds, snowflakes, and more. The book gives us examples of how man attempts to use God's ideas, in a limited capacity, to better humanity's existence. As is to be expected, and commended, the book ends with a clear presentation of the Gospel message.
This book is interesting, informative, and evangelical in its content and I would recommend it for all ages.

Book Review - Made In Heaven by Ray Comfort and Je
October 24, 2012
Mountain View, MO
Have you ever wondered where we got stuff?
I mean, we have such an amazing variety of creative resources to aid our lives. Have you ever wondered where they came from?
And now I know where some of the items I've wondered about originated, thanks to Ray Comfort and Jeffrey Seto's new book, Made In Heaven.
Filled with interesting descriptions of the inspiration for such things as Velcro, adaptive fabrics, jet propulsion, and robotic prosthetics, just to name a few of the more than thirty items found here, Made In Heaven is a fascinating book.
Many of the things described in these pages seem like science-fiction; in fact, they were science-fiction in the not-too-distant past. But with continual advances in technology, and close scrutiny of God's own handiwork, many such items are becoming a reality. The few dozen detailed here are just a sample of the hundreds of inventions inspired by Creation.
While I knew of several of these amazing inventions, many more of them were new to me, and a few were inspired by things I never imagined possible.
Authors Comfort and Seto did an incredible job of putting together the descriptions found here.
I loved reading Made In Heaven. My kids were captivated by the book. And I'm sure you will be as well.
I highly recommend that you add Made In Heaven, by Ray Comfort and Jeffrey Seto, to your library. You'll be glad you did!
