One of the major stumbling blocks to the presentation of the Gospel in our culture today involves astronomy. For decades, public school students (and even seminary students!) have been taught that the world is far older than the Bible chronology suggests, even billions of years older. This naturally causes a disconnect for people, who assume that modern "science" is unbiased and correct.
The author debunks the most accepted teachings about evolution, giving tremendous answers for those struggling to reconcile the Bible and science. Readers are given solid answers to questions about the speed of light, geology, and the big bang.
Sit back and explore the world at your fingertips in this book which:
Explains the scale and size of the universe that is hard for our minds to imagine, yet can only indicate the Master's hand at work.
Over 50 full-color, rarely seen photos of stars, nebulas, and galaxies.
Filled with facts that challenge secular theories and models of the universe? How it began and how it continues to amaze the scientific community.
Explores numerous evidences that point to a young universe: magnetic poles of planets, the spiral shape of galaxies, comets and how long scientists think they can last, and much more.
From Answers Magazine
"Most astronomy textbooks teach that our universe was formed in a big bang billions of years ago, and that stars, galaxies and planets came into existence over vast ages. They teach that the universe and all things within it were not supernaturally created, but rather are the undirected result of the laws of nature acting over the ages.
Such beliefs are the result of naturalistic thinking, a fallacious philosophy that has ensnared the minds of many people in our culture today. God is excluded at all cost. Itís a shame that the universe, which was designed to give God glory (Psalm 19:1), is being misrepresented (due to secular/naturalistic thinking) to exclude God. The enemy has in a sense stolen the field of astronomy. And friend, itís time to take it back!"
Sample page from Taking Back Astronomy
In this new book we learn how the incredible size and beauty of the universe demonstrate Godís glory. We explore passages of Scripture that touch on the topic of astronomy and find that the Bible has always been correct-whether the passages deal with the spherical earth, the number of stars or the expansion of the universe. We see how the laws of physics are consistent with biblical creation, but do not make sense in a naturalistic philosophy.
Readers will learn why the moon is slowly spiraling away from the earth, and how this demonstrates that the earth cannot be billions of years old. They will see how the magnetic fields of the planets are consistent with an age of thousands of years-not billions.
The book discusses often-asked questions such as, "What should be the Christian perspective on extra-terrestrial life?" and "How did the light from distant galaxies get to Earth in thousands of years?"
Taking Back Astronomy is written in an easy-to-read format for the lay-person (plus, there are several "in-depth" sections containing more detailed information for people with a stronger science background).
Taking Back Astronomy will help Christians to engage the evolutionary mindset of our culture and will challenge skeptics to think biblically about the universe.
The author, Dr. Jason Lisle, holds a Ph.D. in astrophysics from the University of Colorado at Boulder and is a popular speaker for Answers in Genesis. Throughout his education, Dr. Lisle was bombarded with the teachings of billions of years of evolution, but he stood firm in his faith while viewing the evidence in our universe as testament to the accuracy of God's Word. Two of Dr. Lisle's popular lectures include Distant Starlight and Creation Astronomy. He is also a featured speaker in the small-group curriculum, Answers Academy.
