What is the nature of space and time? How do we fit within the universe? How does the universe fit within us? There's no better guide through these mind-expanding questions than acclaimed astrophysicist and best-selling author Neil deGrasse Tyson.

But today, few of us have time to contemplate the cosmos. So Tyson brings the universe down to Earth succinctly and clearly, with sparkling wit, in tasty chapters consumable anytime and anywhere in your busy day.

While you wait for your morning coffee to brew, for the bus, the train, or a plane to arrive, Astrophysics for People in a Hurry will reveal just what you need to be fluent and ready for the next cosmic headlines: from the Big Bang to black holes, from quarks to quantum mechanics, and from the search for planets to the search for life in the universe.

The first of its kind on the market, this book offers a bold approach to evangelism by looking at the effects of evolutionary compromise on the modern church, and how to reverse the dangerous trend. Ham alerts the church leaders and laypersons that a low view of Genesis among Christian leaders is rendering the church ineffective at evangelism in our modern world.A non-denominational work, this book clearly explains the foundational importance of Genesis.

Theology needs to engage what recent developments in the study of evolution mean for how we understand moral behavior. How does the theological concept of holiness connect to contemporary understandings of evolution? If genetic explanations of altruism fall short, what role should we give to environmental explanations and free will? Likewise, how do genetic explanations relate to theological accounts of human goodness and holiness? In this groundbreaking work, Matthew Hill uses the lens of Wesleyan ethics to offer a fresh assessment of the intersection of evolution and theology. He shows that what is at stake in this conversation is not only the future of the church but also the fine-tuning of human evolution.

In the ongoing debate about evolution, science and faith face off. But the truth is both sides are right and wrong.

In one corner: Atheists like Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, and Jerry Coyne. They insist evolution happens by blind random accident. Their devout adherence to Neo-Darwinism omits the latest science, glossing over crucial questions and fascinating details.

In the other corner: Intelligent Design advocates like William Dembski, Stephen Meyer, and Michael Behe. Many defy scientific consensus, maintaining that evolution is a fraud and rejecting common ancestry outright.

There is a third way. Evolution 2.0 proves that, while evolution is not a hoax, neither is it random nor accidental. Changes are targeted, adaptive, and aware. You'll discover:

  • How organisms re-engineer their genetic destiny in real time
  • Amazing systems living things use to re-design themselves
  • Every cell is armed with machinery for editing its own DNA
  • The five amazing tools organisms use to alter their genetics
  • 70 years of scientific discoveries, of which the public has heard virtually nothing!

    Perry Marshall approached evolution with skepticism for religious reasons. As an engineer, he rejected the concept of organisms randomly evolving. But an epiphany, that DNA is code, much like data in our digital age, sparked a 10-year journey of in-depth research into more than 70 years of under-reported evolutionary science. This led to a new understanding of evolution, an evolution 2.0 that not only furthers technology and medicine, but fuels our sense of wonder at life itself.

    This book will open your eyes and transform your thinking about evolution and God. You'll gain a deeper appreciation for our place in the universe. You'll see the world around you as you?ve never seen it before.

    Evolution 2.0 pinpoints the central mystery of biology, offering a multimillion dollar technology prize at naturalcode.org to the first person who can solve it.

    Christians throughout history have believed that God reveals himself both through Scripture and nature. The metaphor of God's Two Books is often used to represent these two divine revelations.

    The Book of God's Words is the Bible. Scripture reveals inerrant spiritual truths. These include, the God of Christianity is the Creator of the heavens and the earth, the creation is very good, and only humans are created in the Image of God (Gen. 1:1, 27, 31).

    The Book of God's Works is the physical world. Nature declares God's glory, eternal power, and divine nature (Ps. 19:1; Rom. 1:20). Through the gift of science, our Creator has blessed us with the ability to explore and understand the structure, operation, and origin of his creation.

    Together God's Two Books offer us a complementary divine revelation of who created the world and how he created it.

    A majority of Americans view science and religion as being in conflict, according to the Pew Research Center. Christians and non-Christians alike share this view, yet if this perceived conflict misrepresents the relationship between modern science and Christian faith, then it is both unhelpful and unnecessary today.

    In Evolution: Scripture and Nature Say Yes, theologian and scientist Denis O. Lamoureux reviews several options for embracing biblical Christianity and findings of science, including biological evolution. Holding to a high view of Scripture alongside an expert appreciation for scientific discovery, Lamoureux further outlines a way to understand passages referring to the natural world in the Bible and also demonstrates how modern science can point toward God.

    Lamoureux shares his own story along the way, recounting struggles many readers will relate to on his journey toward PhDs in both theology and biology and a fruitful relationship between the two.

    Topics in this book include:

  • A biblical model of intelligent design in nature based on Psalm 19 and Romans 1.
  • Examination of the ancient science in Scripture, such as a flat earth and 3-tier universe.
  • Comparison of different Christian views on origins--young earth creation, progressive creation (old earth creation), and evolutionary creation.
  • Criticisms of the atheistic interpretation of evolution held by Richard Dawkins and his belief that intelligent design is merely an illusion.
  • Galileo's peaceful relationship between Scripture and nature, including his view that "the intention of the Holy Spirit [in the Bible] is to teach us how one goes to heaven, and not how heaven goes."
  • Darwin's religious beliefs and evidence of the impact that intelligent design had on him throughout his life, along with his claim, "It seems to me absurd to doubt that a man may be an ardent Theist [personal God] and an evolutionist."
  • Believers wanting to honor God's Two Books--Scripture and Nature--faithfully and without conflict will find an excellent introduction in Evolution: Scripture and Nature Say Yes.

    Readers will find author Kenneth Poppe a knowledgeable, easy-to-follow guide as he focuses on the origin and nature of the species called "Homo sapiens"--man.

    Presented with energy and humor, this up-to-date resource pulls no punches in its conclusion. All aspects of humanity that make us unique among life-forms, argues Poppe, were designed and implemented at the will of a supernatural Being. This is where the evidence points.

    With a special gift for helpful analogies, good examples, and clear explanations, the author blows the lid off Darwinian myths surrounding issues like evidence for prehistoric man structures and behaviors thought to be remnants of earlier evolutionary steps the beginning of speech the origin of morality

    "Highly readable for anyone with a general background and superb for students and parents, as well as homeschoolers and educators who wish to present a complete picture of origins science."

    Evolution--or the broader topic of origins--has enormous relevance to how we understand the Christian faith and how we interpret Scripture.

    Four Views on Creation, Evolution, and Intelligent Design presents the current state of the conversation about origins among evangelicals representing four key positions:

  • Young Earth Creationism - Ken Ham (Answers in Genesis)
  • Old Earth (Progressive) Creationism - Hugh Ross (Reasons to Believe)
  • Evolutionary Creation - Deborah B. Haarsma (BioLogos)
  • Intelligent Design - Stephen C. Meyer (The Discovery Institute)
  • The contributors offer their best defense of their position addressing questions such as:

  • What is your position on origins - understood broadly to include the physical universe, life, and human beings in particular?
  • What do you take to be the most persuasive arguments in defense of your position?
  • How do you demarcate and correlate evidence about origins from current science and from divine revelation?
  • What hinges on answering these questions correctly?
  • This book allows each contributor to not only present the case for his or her view, but also to critique and respond to the critiques of the other contributors, allowing you to compare their beliefs in an open forum setting to see where they overlap and where they differ.
