Baker Books Why the Universe Is the Way It Is

Increasingly astronomers recognize that if the cosmos had not unfolded exactly as it did, humanity would not, could not, exist. Yet these researchers--along with countless ordinary folks--resist belief in the biblical Creator. Why? They say a loving God would have made a better home for us, one without trouble and tragedy.

In Why the Universe Is the Way It Is, Hugh Ross draws from his depth of study in both science and Scripture to explain how the universe's design fulfills several distinct purposes. He also reveals God's surpassing love and ultimate purpose for each individual.

Why the Universe Is the Way It Is will interest anyone who wonders where and how the universe came to be, what or who is responsible for it, why we are here, or how and when the universe ends. Far from leaving the reader at this philosophical jumping-off point, Ross builds toward answering the big question of human destiny and the specific question of each reader's personal destiny.

Using science (and math) you are able to uncover and discover God's amazing glory, His power and wisdom displayed in creation. Multiple times I had to stop and just praise God because I was so humbled and struck with awe and wonder. The cosmos at every level: the level of the universe, our solar system, our galaxy, etc screams loud that the universe was made for one purpose: to display God's glory to mankind through redeeming them by His Son.

The book is written for people like me who are not astrophysicists but love leaning about the cosmos and how it came to be. Well done Dr. Ross!
