For eons the moon has intrigued humanity. From its creation through the current issues of space exploration, the moon has been both a light in the night and a protective shield of earth placed perfectly by God, regulating our seasons and keeping our atmosphere purified. Billions of dollars have been spent to reach its surface and discover its secrets; open these pages and discover those secrets for yourself.
This book was a little over the level of my children, and would be better for middle or high schoolers, but I found it absolutely fascinating! I love that it presented the theories about the moon (big bang, evolution etc) then expounded on why those were not possible, and that the moon (and all Creation) was created literally in 6 days. This book was packed with information and gives all glory to God!It is a great addition to our homeschool library.
I received this book from New Leaf Publishing in return for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

We already own many science books from Master Books which we utilize often. So, when the opportunity came up to review Our Created Moon I was very excited to share this with my children and add it to our collection.
Revised and updated, Our Created Moon is written in question and answer format with interesting facts and engaging pictures and some hand-on moon activities as well.
At the beginning of each chapter, learning objectives and words to recognize are clearly written out.
Included in the book: Moon phases, solar system facts, NASA missions, origin theories, purposes of the Moon (helped me to finally understand why Easter changes dates each year), the Moon in scripture, scriptural helps in upholding Creationism, specific features to observe in your own 'Moon watch', and the possibility of Moon colonization.
My kids enjoyed this informative, easy to grasp, well written guide to the Moon. In addition, they had fun calculating their weight on other planets and doing the flip pages where you can watch the phases of the moon at the bottom of the pages.

"Our Created Moon" is an interesting science book on the moon for high school age on up. The book was written from a Christian perspective and included references to Bible verses and to God as the Creator of the universe. There were five chapters. The information was covered in a question-answer format. The full-color illustrations, diagrams, and pictures were lovely and easy-to-understand. There was also moon trivia throughout the book. Each chapter included suggestions for moon-related activities that the reader can do. There was also a glossary in the back of the book. Chapter One had 16 questions covering basic information, including what is a moon, how far away is the moon, what keeps the moon in the sky, how large is the moon, and why do we see only one side of the moon. Chapter Two had 14 questions referring to the history of the moon, including what lunar origin theory dominates today, what is the creation view of the moon, why was the moon created on the forth day, how old is the moon, and what is lunar regression. Chapter Three had 11 questions about the purpose of the moon, including what is the lunar calendar, does the moon affect our seasons and weather, and what natural resources are on the moon. Chapter Four had 10 questions about the moon in Scripture, including is the 'language of appearance' in Scripture, what does the Old Testament say about moon worship, and how prevalent was moon worship in the Ancient Near East. Chapter Five had 11 questions on answering the critics, including does the scientific method rule out any appeal to the supernatural, is the creation view opposed to science research and inquiry, do great distances in space require a vast time scale, and if the moon is young, why does it look old. Overall, I found the book well-written, clear, and very interesting. I'd highly recommend it to those fascinated by our moon or space. I received this book as a review copy from the publisher.
