CREATION BUNDLE - 3 Books
This bundle includes the following three books.
The Quest: Every day, scientists make thousands of new discoveries as they uncover the wonders of God's creation. At the same time, scientific theories about evolution and the origin of the universe challenge traditional Christian beliefs about God's creation. Did God really create human beings by evolution? Or are the Bible's stories of the Garden of Eden and the Great Flood true? Can we ever hope to answer these hard questions?
What if these challenges aren't merely problems to be solved but an invitation to a lifetime of discipleship seeking God? Thus begins The Quest, a unique perspective on creation and evolution that encourages faith, commitment, and curiosity in the face of uncertainty. Science and biblical creation walk hand in hand as we explore God's creation. God calls us to experience the joy of questions and the beauty of His handiwork on The Quest.
Coming to Grips with Genesis: The origin of death, deep time, geneological gaps, and various hermeneutical approaches to early biblical texts are just a few of the issues dealt with by creation scientists. Investigations of all these and more are on display in Coming to Grips with Genesis, edited by Dr. Terry Mortenson with essays by himself and other teachers and writers defending the straightforward interpretation of Genesis chapters 1 through 11.
Attacked, dismissed, maligned, and relegated to the status of mythology, the first eleven chapters of Genesis are difficult for some Christians to believe due to liberal theologians, secular science and others holding God's Word in low esteem. But Mortenson and his team of creationist scholars, in the spirit of the late Dr. Henry Morris, write, teach, debate and lecture on creationist topics, and here address elements of scientific creationism in depth that frequently come under fire. Writing intelligently and clearly, Mortenson and over a dozen contributors provide an apologetic text that answers the tough questions many people, both Christians and non-Christians alike, struggle with in their attempts to clarify the theology of Genesis.
The New Creationism: The academic culture in which science is practiced today is one of tacit - if not explicit - atheism. Nowhere is this more evident than in the scientific study of how the universe began and developed - the field of origins. This book has been written in the conviction that the first eleven chapters of the book of Genesis - the Bible's book of beginnings - provide a trustworthy and accurate account of the early history of the universe.
In the increasingly secular age in which we live, it is all too easy to forget that the major disciplines of science were founded by men of broadly Christian convictions. Their names are perhaps familiar to us - Boyle, Ray, Hooke, Newton, Faraday - but there is often an embarrassed silence concerning the spiritual beliefs that motivated these scientific giants.
Like the astronomer, Kepler, these men perceived that in their scientific insights they were thinking God's thoughts after him'. Today, however, there is a sense of collective amnesia about the religious motivations of these men.
