This is a beautifully illustrated coffee table book that shows the evidence of the Creator. The author uses the days of creation to reveal how the laws of the universe have been designed so we can live on earth. Relevant Scriptures passages are added to the text throughout the book.
Schabacker covers the rain cycle, the importance of vegetation, the phases of the moon and the tides, stars and celestial navigation, seasons, floating ice, some amazing animals, bird migration, and the amazing design of the human body.
He does a great job revealing several principles of science along with evidence that a loving God created them.
