I've read a lot of books related to this particular subject. I would say this book falls somewhere in the middle. This was definitely a perspective from the point of Christianity using both the Bible and some of the apocryphal writings. He did site many of these writings, but it did seem that he filled in a lot of the gaps with his own assumptions; sometimes logical and sometimes not. It is a huge subject and the author gave a pretty broad overview starting from billions of years ago to now. I would say this is more of a quick introduction to the subject. I thought he did a great job on dealing with the age and history of the universe, specifically our own solar system. His perspective is not common in Christian circles (but makes the most sense if you can get past the literal 6 day thing in the first chapter of Genesis). However, I did find his explanation of "why" the fallen angels left their original habitation to manifest physically a bit weak. Although I don't think he was completely wrong, I believe that there was a more sinister and vindictive reason that goes back to the curse that God placed upon Lucifer after he deceived human kind.
This was not a bad listen. There are better books out there, but unfortunately they are not on audible.
