It Couldn't Just Happen review

Publisher's Description:
This four-color, Gold Medallion Book Award winner is a perfect tool that offers solid, biblical answers to some of the tough questions kids ask about evolution and our world.

“Did Earth begin with a ‘Big Bang’ cosmic explosion?”
“Does science contradict the Bible?”
“What happened to dinosaurs?”
“Is there life on other planets?”
“Did we evolve from apes?”
“What makes my body work on its own?”

Kids are daily exposed to the theory of evolution by the media and public schools. It’s not safe to assume that your kids will reject that theory. It’s up to us as parents and Christian leaders to make sure our children know the truth about the creation of the world. With thousands of evidences to prove He created and sustains the universe, It Couldn’t Just Happen will fascinate kids with fun activities and examples of God’s marvelous works.

My Review:

  Let me just say, "WOW"!  This book is an amazing resource for any Christian parent to have in the home for their children.  It is an awesome demonstration of how science CONFIRMS the Bible rather than goes against it.  Throughout the book, Richards presents proof that even the science our children are being presented with in school as true is flawed.  He then provides scripture to demonstrate that science is beginning to recognize the facts in the Bible.  (The Earth does revolve around the Sun, the stars can not be counted, animals reproduce after their own kind and don't evolve into new kinds.)

While I have been teaching my children the truth about the creation of the world and all that is in it and combating the science they are being exposed to as truth for many years now, this book presents it in a great way and even included some things I did not know.  (Did you know that soil, which is necessary for living things to grow, MUST contain organic matter to support life?  In other words, without dead plants in the soil it can't provide what is needed for plants to grow.  So how did plants first begin to grow? It's a which came first the chicken or the egg? kind of thing.)  I also like that the book reminds me of a school textbook.  Great for public school children who tend to view textbooks as truth.  Seems to increase the validity of the content in their minds.

This would be a great homeschool resource or supplement to your child's education.  I highly recommend it!
