I've always looked forward to the "new earth." This enjoyable book makes me look forward to the "new heavens" more than ever. For this I'm deeply thankful! * -Kevin Flannery, senior pastor, Church of the Saviour * This book is a primer on the current best science on the universe. It illumines our thinking, helps us grasp our Creator's comets, stars, and meteors, and shows us how we may better love God, the scientific enterprise, and the detailed wonders of the heavens and earth that this enterprise reveals. * -Robert G. Duffett, president, Eastern University * This book is a celebration of wonder. In plain, accessible language, Bradstreet and Rabey show us how beautiful and mysterious the universe is. This book helps us love the artistry of our great cosmic canvas. * -Dean Nelson, coauthor, Quantum Leap: How John Polkinghorne Found God in Science and Religion * This book will capture the imagination of all who hunger to see God's majesty, creativity, power, and love with fresh eyes. Read this book and you'll never see the heavens the same way. * -Terry Linhart, author and professor of Christian ministries, Bethel College * We live in a time when cosmologist Sean Carroll claims that "the evidence is pretty incontrovertible" for atheism. This book reminds us that for those who ask why there's any beauty in the universe, the heavens still declare the glory of God. * -Douglas LeBlanc, author, Tithing: Test Me in This * This book combines an engaging and informed romp through the cosmos with a deep conviction that the heavens declare the glory of God. Bradstreet and Rabey make the case that we live on a privileged planet in a remarkably designed universe. * -Karl Giberson, scholar-in-residence in science and religion, Stonehill College * Too many people see science and faith in conflict. Leading astronomer David Bradstreet explodes that myth in this outstanding, highly readable book that shows how science has enriched his faith and how Christian faith has enriched science. * -David Wilkinson, author and professor of theology and religion, Durham University * A close read of this inviting book will open your mind to see the amazing work of God in an amazingly massive universe. You'll be dually awed by the majesty of creation and the action of the Creator. * -Andrew Root, Carrie Olson Baalson Professor of Youth and Family Ministry, Luther Seminary * A sweeping account of how the heavens and heaven go hand in hand. Even if you don't completely accept the authors' theological worldview, you will encounter many intriguing insights you won't find expressed so clearly elsewhere. * -Owen Gingerich, professor emeritus of astronomy and of the history of science, Harvard University * This book declares the glory of God and invites us to see in the heavens his handiwork. This is a great resource for anyone who wants to help young people see that science and faith can share the same space! * -Dr. Duffy Robbins, professor of youth ministry, Eastern University * This book is an engaging and personal tour of the universe from a respected astronomer who also loves the Bible. Come along for the ride! * -Deborah Haarsma, astronomer and president of BioLogos * Astronomy elicits awe and wonder from those who gaze into the vastness of the universe.
