Item description for Universe by Design (Design) by Danny Faulkner & Faulkner Danny...
Overview Do the latest scientific findings support the argument for a created cosmos? Creationist astronomer Faulkner says yes! Looking at recent and historical developments in cosmology from a biblical perspective, he reviews theories on the universe's origin; analyzes the contributions of Ptolemy, Galileo, Newton, Einstein, and others; offers a thorough discussion of the big bang theory; and more. A superb supplement to an upper-level science curriculum. Includes study questions.
Publishers Description Some astronomers look at the stars and planets through a telescope. Author Danny Faulkner views them through a biblical perspective in this unique book. Written for the well-read layman from high school through adult, Universe by Design explores and explains the historical development of this science, including current ideas in the field. From a creationist standpoint, Faulkner also addresses common misconceptions, difficulties, and critiques about relativity and cosmology. This book would be an excellent supplement to any home school curriculum.

Come on, The Bible and Science are not the same... Jun 26, 2007
Using the Bible to fill in gaps in his scientific knowledge and crazy theories make this the worst ten bucks I've ever spent... don't buy this book! Flush your money down the toilet instead, it will be more entertaining.
Go ahead and live your religion however you please, but keep it out of the classroom as an easy answer to anything you cannot explain with the scientific method.
Absolutely amazing Aug 29, 2005
Here's an absolute for ya - this book is absolutely amazing! Phew!
Met the author, loved the book. Jun 7, 2005
After my mom had a class under this professor, she recommednd that I attend the book signing that USC-Lancaster was holding for him and his book. I went and got it (they sold out) and it was a very good choice. This book is awesome. He could've done more elaborating on the Humphreye's outline but he still did a great job.
A must read book Feb 2, 2005
Dr.Danny Faulkner is a very brilliant man! He is a Professor of cosmology at the University of South Carolina. The book is a must read for all people interested in the really big questions of our universe. Don't let the book description fool you; you can get a lot out of this book even if you are not a christian. If you are a christian, you MUST have this book in your collection. There is not another book out there that has the best that cosmological science has to offer through the eyes of a creationalist. I can not praise Dr. Faulkner enough, having took some of his classes at USC,I have first hand experience of his depth of knowledge and passion for teaching. If you have to buy only one book this year you must make it this one!
