This is an awesome book. I learned so much about the stars and planets. It is amazing, the incredible, vast universe that God has created. I am discovering more and more brilliant scientists who can show proof that many secular beliefs are erroneous. These secular assumptions are presented as fact and yet they have never been proven.

This was a very informative read. It's separated into all sorts of sections posing different questions so it doesn't even have to be read in order. Definitely worth reading esp will all that's currently out there posing evolutionary ideas as fact.

Good answers, but I admit it got a bit boring or hard to follow at times.

Is the earth's temperature changing? -

"Which idea is the correct one for the earth's future, a war

This a great book to learn the basic arguments for the evidence of the Creator when it comes to the subject of Astronomy. The only complaint I have against this book is that it veers off into some theological issues that are not totally agreed upon (like dispensationalism) vise just giving the evidence.

Great little book for amateur astronomers wanting to reconcile what secular scientists have hypothesized versus what absolute truth says about the created universe. Well thought out explanations are simple to grasp without being preachy. open minded scholars will enjoy.
