I had the chance to read It Couldn't Just Happen: Knowing the Truth about God's Awesome Creation by Lawrence O. Richards.I have read many other books dealing with creation vs. evolution and this one truly excels in presenting information in a clear way that builds upon many aspects of scientific thinking.
The book is broken up into 5 parts; “Earth in Our Universe”, “How Life Began”, “Evidence from Living Things”, “Humanity in God’s Nature”, and “The Book That Didn’t Just Happen”, each with several chapters.The first four parts explore the scientific behind the theories.At the end of each chapter there is a Just For Fun section that gives the reader five questions or projects to reinforce the subject matter.The fifth part, “The Book That Didn’t Just Happen”, discusses the historical accuracy of the bible, it’s supernatural origin, the deity of Jesus, and what the Bible teaches about creation.
Written for children, it is an excellent way to work through the conflicting theories when studying with your child.Whichever theory you believe, you should know as much as possible about both theories.Too many times people argue for their view with an ignorance of the other side.There is plenty of information to get a clear picture of both.Look at the evidence, then decide for yourself.
