Product Description

"The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork," exclaims the Psalmist. The heavens are beckoning us, telling us that this wonderful, mind-boggling cosmic display is indeed the work of the creator. And now, using rovers and satellites, we're venturing further out into the vastness of space than ever before.

In Star Struck, Christian astronomer David Bradstreet has joined forces with award-winning writer Steve Rabey to take readers on a guided tour of the biggest story ever, offering both intriguing science lessons and powerful spiritual insights.

Combining a respect and admiration for mainstream astronomy with a zeal for uncovering new details about God's celestial handiwork, this book unveils such vast and turbulent wonders as stars, planets, asteroids, nebulae, comets, and dark matter--all revealing the majesty and mystery of the God who created the cosmos long ago and still sustains it today.

    Scripture tells us that the heavens declare the glory of God. We Christians can have a better sense of the greatness of God, Bradstreet says, if we know more about the universe we live in. He has written this book to help Christians understand what science has to say about how the universe began and what is happening in it now.

    This is an introductory book on cosmology and astronomy. It is written for the science novice and is very easy to understand. I read a few science magazines regularly and found that I was familiar with almost everything covered in the book.

    Readers are taken through the history of science discovery as it relates to astronomy. Other topics covered include the just right condition of the earth, the planets of the solar system, studying the Bible and science, balancing science and faith, the age of the earth, and the quest for extraterrestrial life.

    Bradstreet is a theistic creationist and believes the God hypothesis remains the best explanation for the existence of all that is. He believes God daily sustains the cosmos through natural processes.

    This book would be a good introduction for those who have never studied astronomy. Christians should not be afraid of science nor hesitant to study it, Bradstreet says. This book might help readers develop a passion for science as well as have a greater understanding of the greatness of God.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.

    As a physician the human body has always filled me with awe and wonder. I can see the hand of the Creator at work - we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Now the evening sky or the daily sunset will fill me with that same awe and wonder. Thanks to Star Struck I will never gaze into the heavens in the same way again. Thank you, Dr. Bradstreet and Steve Rabey. Oh, by the way, this is one of the most readable scientific books I have read - this book is for everyone. I learned much about astronomy and even more about the Creator. Enjoy...I did! Bob Snyder M.D.
