Publisher's Summary

The latest scientific discoveries point to an intentional creator.

Most of us remember the basics from science classes about how Earth came to be the only known planet that sustains complex life. But what most people don't know is that the more thoroughly researchers investigate the history of our planet, the more astonishing the story of our existence becomes. The number and complexity of the astronomical, geological, chemical, and biological features recognized as essential to human existence have expanded explosively within the past decade. An understanding of what is required to make possible a large human population and advanced civilizations has raised profound questions about life, our purpose, and our destiny. Are we really just the result of innumerable coincidences? Or is there a more reasonable explanation?

This fascinating book helps nonscientists understand the countless miracles that undergird the exquisitely fine-tuned planet we call home - as if someone had us in mind all along.

Wonderful and Thought Provoking Book

As a Science Teacher, I found this book enlightening. It was both biblical sound and scientifically accurate. In addition to being an avid researcher on this topic, I also am a experienced presenter. If you would like to speak with me about this book or creation vs naturalistic science you may contact me at

More Thankful, Awed

The painstaking planing, time, and energy needed to prepare the planet for The LORD’s greatest creation, namely Adam, made in God’s very own image is Awe inspiring. From the Big Bang, to the details involved to get to where we are now, is no trivial act of magic. It was a stepwise sequential process that took billions of years, and although complete, a veting process is currently at hand as to who inherits it. For the camp who say “In the beginning God simply said ‘abracadabra’ and boom! Here we are!” Promotes a kind of mindless trivialness to it all. One has less appreciation if any, less awe inspiring fear if any, and less faith if any. Sadly the same holds for those who want to remove God, and ascribe it all to a random accident. I look at the plants, animals, and my fellow human beings in a much different light, and praise his holy Name. Thank you Heavenly Father, and Son for all you do for us, and for giving us people like Hugh Ross and his team at reasons to believe.

Excellent, but for scientists.

Chapter 13 informs that evolutionists admit they can't offer a possible explanation for life. Chapter 16 explains God's plan for humanity based on the information provided in the book.

Who knew? Who would have guessed? Profound Insight

If you have ever wondered if there was a theory as to why things happened in the Universe's long history this book will answer your question. If you have ever wondered if the Universe was 'expecting' life on Earth, this book will help you discover the reasons some scientist say 'yes'. If you have ever listened or read a scientist's reasons life is just a blind chance, this book will give you a scientist's reasons for saying not a chance.

"Real Evidence" for Creation

This book has more real evidence for creation than I have ever seen or heard. I believe if you're a real scientist you follow the evidence where it leads, I cannot believe that these atheist scientist refuse to follow the evidence.

Like Science, Curious about how we got here?

If you've ever looked up at the night sky on a clear night and marveled at the stars... This book is worth the listen. I started it and could not stop listening to it. Well put together flows nicely. Listen with an open mind and an open heart and you might be surprise at what you find inside yourself.

needs a concept summery for the end of each chapter. I really appreciated the depth of the research.
