Dismantling the Big Bang: God's Universe Rediscovered

Front Cover

  • Why did Ptolemy's theory cause problems for the church?
  • What is the big secret concerning the "?Age" of the earth?
  • Why do many scientists reject the use of design in explaining origins?

The seemingly absurd idea that all matter, energy, space, and time once exploded from a point of extreme density has captured the imagination of scientists and laypersons for decades. The big bang has provided a central teaching for the eons of time of "cosmic evolution", undermining the history and cosmology of the Bible.

It is a theory that fails, even violating the very physical laws on which it is purportedly based.
In this easy-to-read format, authors Alex Williams and John Hartnett explode this naturalistic explanation for the universe, and show that the biblical model provides a far better explanation of our origins. This fully indexed, illustrated analysis of the big bang theory is an invaluable help in understanding and countering a world view that is as chaotic and destructive as its name implies.
