Creation as Science dovetails the facts of science with the authority of the Bible in a realistic step toward a peaceful coexistence. – Joyce Handzo, Christian Book Previews.com
Development of the scientific creation-model concept represents one of Hugh Ross's most significant contributions to Christian apologetics. This new book explains why a testable model is essential, outlines the basic components of RTB's model, and includes predictions about the direction of future research.
Ross brings a calm, confident voice to the acrimonious clash between intelligent design/creation and evolution advocates. He understands why naturalists cling to their evolutionary models despite serious weaknesses--models that ultimately thwart scientific progress and leave humanity without hope or purpose.
Everyone can benefit from a new and better scientific model to explain the world around us, especially a model that attests the accuracy and authority of the Bible!
