The two Amazon Editorial Reviews (from Publishers Weekly and Booklist) just don't get it. Why is it hard for people to understand that a book written by a Christian, for a Christian audience, by a Christian publisher will develop it's theme from a Christian perspective. And why would someone wonder how a Christian could believe that God could hear a billion prayers at once (since, God being God, from the Christian world-view, can hear an infinite number of prayers at any given "moment").

This was a fascinating book! Dr. Richard Swenson uses creation to talk about the power, sovereignty, and omniscience of God. He goes into detail about the body, including the complexity of our 5 senses and the organs we use for them, how our muscles work, and even how our DNA is put together to form us, to show the Creator at work. He then moves on to talk about the complexity of the universe, how it behaves uniformly when looked at from our reference point, and how things get pretty crazy when ...more

Not having taken much interest in math and science much, it was kinda difficult to grasp certain ideas or concepts. But I have learned so much more about biology and physics, and I am in awe of how intricate and perfect God created everything. It reminded me of my own insignificance compared to the size of the universe and the intensity of his love through the cross. I would recommend it, especially for those who are math and science geeks out there!

science vs. faith

the book, more than meets the eye, is a wonderful exposition of scientific discoveries of our body and the universe where we live. yet, amazingly all scientific findings can't help to point out the sovereignty of a powerful being who orchestrates everything in order and design. all human effort to know and dig deeper into the world of science would only integrate and solidify our faith in the creator!

God is awesome.

"Truthful science, however, always tells us much about the power, precision, design and sovereignty of God--details we learn nowhere else." (Pg 185)

Science and God do relate.

Since we are alive, God must love us.

Amazing facts about God's creation and how only God could have created it all. The body is soooooo intricate and could never have just happened by chance . . . only by the combination of certain cells could human life exist.

Wow, the human body is such an amazing machine, and the more one learns about the galaxies, etc., it is beyond what one can grasp. In parts this book gets rather technical, but that just makes me want to read this book again in the future.

3.5. Easy with short chapters. Good bedtime reflection book. Offers a very comprehensive list of further reading.

Scientist-astonomer writes about the vast temperatures and energy of the sun and then asks if God is bigger and impermeable, and if so, why don't we trust him more.
