Item Description...
Overview
(When placing your order, please mention that this is a Lightining Source book.) A number of years ago, John Clayton, a second-generation atheist and respected scientist and teacher, set out to disprove the Bible from a scientific point of view. Instead, his six-year study brought him to a profound faith in the God of the Bible. Now, in this highly informative and easy to understand book, John Clayton and Nils Jansma - a geotechnical engineer and geologist - present convincing evidence that the Bible and the facts of science agree. As the public moves away from a belief in God as Creator of our heaven and earth, it becomes imperative that all believers be well informed on this vital subject. This book will become a resource you will use again and again.

Publishers Description
What is the origin of the world and of life itself?
Did a series of accidents and evolution bring about the world as we know it?
Or is there a design and purpose behind it all?
And if there is a design, is there an ultimate designer?

Reviews - What do our customers think?
According to scripture, does anything in nature 'prove' and/or 'bear witness' of an intelligent designer?  Nov 22, 2008
There seems to be an argument presented in some of the reviews for this book which needs to be addressed.

The argument revolves around the relationship of faith and that which is seen in nature.

So, what does scripture say? Before coming to a conclusion as to the 'scriptural' value of Clayton's arguments, please read Romans 1:18-20:

18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

The faith which scripture states is necessary for the Christian does not relate so much to a knowledge of God, but it has to do with salvation from a fallen nature in the heart of man.

Separately (though directly related), the witness of nature has to do with an awareness of God.

Certainly all men do not believe there is a God, but scripture claims that all men knew it at some point in their life.

Since some men have thus allegedly 'moved away from this recognition,' and some of those man have subsequently moved back to a recognition of the nature of God seen in creation, Clayton's book and others with similar intent are not written so much with an intent to provide the faith for salvation, as a re-awakening of a knowledge of an intelligent designer.

As such, the 'proofs' or 'evidences' seen through the eyes of Clayton are not a blasphemous statement against 'faith' in scripture.

As to evolution and science: We have not tried to 'protect' our children from the claims of evolution, but on the contrary, have provided an open door into a broad array of conclusions made by a variety of scientists in the field, including various Christian scientists.

Our children have enjoyed learning about catastrophism and etc., but do not believe that it is necessarily the explanation of all things.

Clayton's book has been on their book shelf as a result of our approach, and is one of the most celebrated books on the topic read by our children.
 
Science and Common Sense  May 17, 2007
This book is a very good study on the reasons why belief in intelligent design is the most logical explanation for life and the universe. John Clayton is a former atheistic evolutionist who looked at the facts, knowledge and research of science and, like Albert Einstein, concluded that the Universe indeed had a creator.

It's easy to read and hard to put down simply because it's very interesting.
 
Great Book that takes approach of Romans 1:20  Feb 17, 2003
I am sorry to see a few reviews where I think the readers missed the point of John Claytons Book. I would highly recommend attending one of his Seminars on the subject which are given throughout the U.S. This book is not trying to solve all the mysteries of God. What it is doing is showing that it takes tremendous faith to belief in science without God and that our faith in God can be supported by what we know and see in creation. Romans 1:20 "For since the creation of the world God's invisible quailites-his eternal power and divine nature-have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made." Yes, faith is the most important part of the equation in our belief of God but we do not have to be afraid to look at ways science can support that faith. This book is very helpful for the Christian and Non-Christian in understanding that faith in God is not just blind but includes logical, scientic thinking. Great gift for a college student.
 
Essential Reading for Scientific Nonbelievers  Jan 6, 2003
The description of the author and book say it all. A second generation atheist and scientist who approached the topic from "the opposite direction". Some have criticized this book with the admonition that potential readers should simply "stop doubting and believe"--an absurd proposition when reaching out to atheists. The OT and NT spend little time on the creation of the universe, and rightfully so. The message is the word of God, not an complete explanation of what we know of his entire creation. This book starts from the mindset of a curious nonbeliever and provides compelling evidence of God's eternal design and forces the reader to re-examine their nonbelief. He also details his own study into the religions of the world and how his study led him to become a Christian.
 
The Source  Jul 4, 2002
This book is an excellent compilation of the evidence for a divine creator in the scientific record. My husband and I read it together and found it to be easy to understand. We also found it read quickly despite the complicated material. I highly recommend this if you are interested in the subject of our earth's origins and the basis for God.
