Reviews - What do customers think about Space& Time (God's Creation Series)?
Great Intro to Creation for Elementary Aged Students Jul 13, 2009
Obviously, those who are "anti-Christian" or out to bash anything remotely religious will give it poor reviews. The intended audience is Christians, and the basis is that God is the Creator. The description says ages 6 & up. Probably about to age 10 - after that, your child will want more information on each topic.
On a "young level" the book shares that some Christians believe in a young earth and others don't. While this may dissapoint some, we found it a way to share differing opinions and the Scriptural basis for these origins. Some parents may also be dissapointed that these books do not follow the sequence of creation set in Genesis & instead jump around. (the author's claim is so "we can understand them better")
There is a mix of graphics that range from "toony" to high-end realistic sketches. Topics tend to jump around and end/start in middle of pages. This makes it difficult if you only want to discuss a certain section. Early readers will find the vocabulary and sentence structure difficult. There were some interesting comparisons to help visualize (like if the sun were a basketball, the Earth would the size of the head of a pin).
The price is a stretch. Perhaps the set of 4 for $19.99...
Topics Include: In the Beginning God... How Old Is This Place Anyway? The Heavens Declare God's Glory The Stars in the Sky What's All This About Warped Space and Time? Worlds Around Us
No, really... Apr 15, 2009
I've scanned though the pages of this book and can assure you it's full of some actual science with loads of woo-woo added. It's actually entertaining but not for the reason the authors intended. I see someone (not me, oddly enough) suggested "science fiction" as a tag for this book. Clever.
