Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Do science and the Bible offer contradictory answers to life's biggest questions?

Hugh Ross the astronomer knows his science. This Christian author and apologist also knows Scripture. And he sees no conflict between the two. The same God who created the universe gave humans the intellect and curiosity to explore it.

The search for answers takes us on a thrilling adventure of discovery. Ross leads the exploration by showing how cutting-edge research and key biblical principles agree. This faith-building page-turner is equally useful for personal and group study, deep reflection, and serious debate. Why the Universe Is the Way It Is opens our minds--and our eyes--to a stunning new view of the Creator.

From the Back Cover

"Why?" may be the most common and emotionally charged question in human experience.

With the Bible in one hand and the latest scientific findings in the other, astronomer Hugh Ross tackles many of our most pressing cosmic "why" questions. If God made the universe,
• why would he make it so vast?
• why would he wait to bring humans onto the scene?
• why would he allow decay and death to be part of it?
• why would he let one man and one woman ruin it for everyone?
• why should I believe my life has any real meaning?
• why is the future of the cosmos so bleak?

Within these pages you will find compelling answers to these questions--answers that give you reasons to believe that our finely tuned universe "shouts loudly that life is more than a cosmic accident."

"This book will expand your mind with the universe it describes. It is a challenging, fascinating, and mind-stretching discussion of the nature and purpose of our amazing universe in the light of Scripture by one of America's foremost evangelical astronomers."--Norman L. Geisler, cofounder and former dean of Southern Evangelical Seminary

"Absolutely delightful! Ross's ability to take science and show the biblical correlation in prophecy and application is unparalleled; it makes God's wisdom and the biblical text seem so much more magnificent."--James M. Tour, Chao Professor of Chemistry, professor of computer science, professor of mechanical engineering and materials science, Rice University, Smalley Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology

"A groundbreaking look at the enduring questions that confront every person regarding our existence. Utilizing today's cutting-edge scientific research from a Christian worldview, Ross offers the most developed answers to date on key concerns regarding creation, God, and humanity. This book is a must-read for anyone who craves scientific information that interacts with tough biblical issues."--John Ankerberg, bestselling author and host of the John Ankerberg Show

"Ross simultaneously challenges skeptics and Christians alike with his fresh take on scientific discoveries that point to the existence of God."--Ben Young, Second Baptist Church, Houston; author of Why Mike's Not a Christian

The initial chapters of the book were interesting and even inspiring. He pointed out a lot of ways that the Earth is a very particular location, not one of many in the universe that could have either brought forth life (if you are into Evolution), or been the selected site for creation or divine direction (if you're a believer in 6-day Creation or far longer Intelligent Design). However, although he indicated an old universe and old Earth along the way, the later chapters in the book he used to link many Biblical events, sometimes here making some connections that were not as scientifically valid (IMHO). He seemed to be fitting pieces together here, when there could be other explanations (or no explanations). Looking through the other reviews of the book, I found that its reception was, however, generally positive. Certainly worth the read, and the thinking that it provokes, particularly at a time where the average person thinks (due to the attention that the media gives any astronomy discovery) that there are suitable planets for human life just a hop across the galaxy, and that life on other planets is almost guaranteed. His observations indicate that this is not the case, and another Earth-like find may be rare, even impossible.
