Bite size pieces Jul 11, 2006
I like the small bits of different areas of science that you can read about every day. I appreciate the index in the back, where I can look up more of a particular area, if wanted.
Appreciate the wonder of God's creation Jan 14, 2006
This book may encourage you in your own personal search for the truth. If you want greater depth of research information on the topic of creation versus evolution, there is much out there. This book is a place to start and sites many useful sources. The Institute for Creation Research (icr.org) museum near San Diego, for example, is where I picked up my copy.
I have examined the evidence and I have decided that God created the Earth without the use of macroevolution. (Microevolution, which happened after creation, is fact and is not disputed.)
I like to read this book and marvel at the wonder God's amazing creation. I highly recommend this book as a resource to strengthen your faith in our awesome Creator God.
This book is organized into daily readings-one page per day. Each day describes an amazing fact about our world and God's creation.
Jesus taught us to pray by addressing God as "Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name." (Matthew 6:9) I believe God wants us to adress Him with a feeling of respect and reverence, fully aware of His sovereignty and awesome power. When I read this book it makes me feel even more in awe of our God and his amazing work.
"And ye shall seek me, and find me when ye shall search for me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:13
"But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul." Deuteronomy 4:29
Religious, but not scientific by any means Feb 17, 2005
This book is clearly incapable of fulfilling its boastful back cover promises. First of all because a truely fact-based and scientifically accurate discussion of the topic cannot be attained without a huge load of background knowledge. Secondly because the sources quoted are by no means impartial in the evolutionary debate, but, instead, similarly premised and largely lack understanding of modern science. Thirdly, one of the main arguments presented, after stating some arbitrary "nice-to-know" item on biological facts, that "this cannot have come into existence by accident". Thus, the line of argumentation is neither impartial, nor even-handed, but simply a blunt attack on science based on the absence of the will to truly deal with the topic unbiased and in greater detail.
Good, but not what I expected Jan 21, 2005
What I expected from the description was a book presenting comparisons of evidence between creationism and evolution in point-for-point facts. A strong selling feature for myself was the comment of it being written in laymans terms. (as opposed to the scientific approach of other books)
Instead the book is actually made up of 365 (as in daily) facts dealing with several categories of creation supportive "mini-reports". Yes, these daily thoughts are listed starting with January 1st and go through the calendar to the end of the year. These extremely short items, while interesting, never go into any depth. They simply state a fact and then end with an appropriate or related Bible verse. Imagine an important event from history condensed to two paragraphs and it will give you an idea as to the "just getting started" feeling presented in this books "single page" format. I agree with the basis of the beliefs presented, but the format and lack of depth was disappointing.
A Closer Look at the Evidence Dec 27, 2003
What an incredible book!!!! Clear, concise, well researched and written for all ages to comprehend. Daily reading for one to dwell on content or easy read for a devourer of creation vs evolution truth seekers. I strongly recommend this book for a daily dose of factual content to bolster ones belief. This is not a controversial, in your face, polarizing read. Rather, a factual presentation of sciences which raise the question is evolution possible??? This causes one to think critically, from the evidence about our origin. Also, each day has reference material included. This is a must read...
