Universe by Design: An Explanation of Cosmology and Creation

Danny Faulkner. 2004. Master Books, 143 pages.

The stars and planets are viewed through a Biblical perspective by the author in this unique book. The book explains the historical development of the science of astronomy, including current ideas in the field. It addresses common misconceptions and difficulties about relativity, quantum mechanics, the redshift, the cosmic microwave background, the Hubble constant, and other topics in cosmology. Theories and facts on the origin and expansion of the universe are presented. Man’s special place in the universe, called the anthropic principle, is emphasized. The book provides an even-handed discussion of the big bang theory and its problems. The book is written for the well-read layman.
