A TOS Review: Purposeful Design: Understanding the Creation

Did you know that if our moon was much larger or it was closer to the earth it that it would create devastating tides? These tides would have a catastrophic effect on our planet and mankind. If the moon were much smaller or farther away from the earth the tides wouldn't be beneficial to mankind.  As is it, the moon is perfectly placed. It is a perfect size for just right gravitation pull and tides

Did you know that one of the camel's stomach chambers can hold up to 30 gallons of water? This,of course, makes the camel an ideal method of transport for those living in the desert. Or that eating beautiful apples can help prevent scurvy, fight dysentery, limits gall and kidney problems, fights heart disease and more? 

Shew! You'll have to excuse me for a minute. I need to go munch on an apple!

All of these things point to a Purposeful Creator. It is incredible to think of the marvels of our universe and our planets. All work together in intricate and marvelous harmony.  

I just had the chance to review a truly beautiful book.  Purposeful Design: Understanding the Creation by Jay Schabacker. Purposeful Design seeks to present the undeniable evidence of a gracious and loving creator. The world and everything in it was created with purpose.

Purposeful Design Review

This is a hardcover book is for all ages. It is not only gorgeous to look at, but it is Biblically accurate as well. The cost for the book is $18.95. 

Every morning, Josiah and I read together. Currently, he is reading out of Psalms. I am also reading to him a devotional especially for young men. I added Purposeful Design to our list of mornings reads. It has truly been delightful.

What is so special about this book is Mr. Schabacker takes complex scientific information and weaves it together effortlessly with Biblical truths. 

The book is divided into chapters that coincide with the Days of Creation found in Genesis 1. 

Chapter 1 ~The First Day: Creation of the Heavens and the Earth - the Foundation of it All (What Keeps Things Going?)

Chapter 2 ~The Second Day: Creation of the Atmosphere and Water (Quenching the Thirsty Earth - The "Rain Cycle")

Chapter 3 ~The Third Day: Creation of the Dry Land and Vegetation (The Importance of Vegetation and Plants to Humans)

Chapter 4 ~The Fourth Day: Creation of the Sun, Moon, and Stars (The Sun's Ray and the Earth's Tilt; Use of the Preciseness of the Sunrise; The Many Benefits of our Moon; The Beneficial Ocean Tides; and Stars)

Chapter 5 ~The Fifth Day: Creation of the Birds and Fish (Why the Birds and Fish Were Created; Instinct; and Why Does Ice Float?)

Chapter 6 ~The Sixth Day: Creation of Land Creatures and Humans (God Made Domestic Animals for Us and The Amazing Uniqueness of the Human Being)

Chapter 7 ~The Seventh Day

I just had to share this picture. I apologize for the quality of my pictures. I think that someone has been using my camera for secret missions aboard an alien spaceship. 

Anyhoo. This guy looks how I feel most days. Throw a pair of dangly earrings on him and he could pass for me. 

Purposeful Design: Young Explorer’s Club

You can also take advantage of the Young Explorer's Club. This is a workbook that can be used as a companion along with the book. There is also a teacher's edition as well.

It is intended for elementary readers. 

I think this would be a fantastic gift (it would make a beautiful coffee table book), a help when studying Creation or just for reading with the family.
