What a great text and tool for your high schooler’s earth science curriculum!! Instead of debating several difficult issues that are sometimes over our heads, the author presents the facts and then applies them to resolve the debate over such things as creation, evolution, Galileo, and Darwin. The fascinating facts are clearly explained, such as glacial melting or potassium/argon dating. This has a great balance for students who love science (they will use this as a springboard to further study- it has an awesome bibliography!) or for those who dread science (she pulls out scientific stories –not just facts- from so many diverse areas and weaves them into an interesting, epic of Creation). What do you say to your creationist friends? What do you think when they insist that you join them in defending the Bible by defending its first chapter as a science text? What do you say to your scientific friends? Is belief in God reasonable? Is belief in Genesis reasonable? Creator and Creation is a “science apologetics book”. It addresses the creationist cosmology from a unified doctrinal, scriptural, scientific, and philosophical perspective. Designed to invite Catholics to be the good scientists that they have been throughout history, with no fear for the honest conclusions of secular science.
Creator and Creation has received a Nihil Obstat from the Diocesan Censor of the Sioux Falls Diocese of South Dakota.
