"This book is meant to be an introduction only—a starting point to a biblical view of the universe…”
People have been fascinated by the stars for centuries, looking to them for guidance and in awe. Unfortunately, modern evolutionary thinking in astronomy has caused many people to disconnect from the Bible's account of history as they are taught that the universe is millions or even billions of years old. Taking Back Astronomy is written for the layperson and shows how what we see in the universe confirms the biblical account of the origins and workings of the universe. This book:
Contains over 50 full-color, rarely seen photos of stars, nebulae, and galaxies.
Is filled with facts that challenge secular theories and models of the universe.
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.
Dr. Jason Lisle discusses and debunks popular evolutionary concepts such as the big bang and answers biblical questions like how the speed of light affects the Bible's account of history. With a doctorate in astrophysics from the University of Colorado, Dr. Jason Lisle is a qualified guide to the universe beyond our world. Experience the truly awesome power of God through this glimpse of His vast creation.
