The heavens and everything in them have long been a source of wonder, curiosity, and excitement. The vastness of space reminds us how small we are (Psalm 8:3–4), and the beauty and majesty of the heavenly bodies declare God’s glory (Psalm 19:1). Well, you can learn more about the heavens in AiG astronomer Dr. Danny Faulkner’s new book, The Expanse of Heaven: Where Creation and Astronomy Intersect.
This comprehensive new volume, intended as a companion to Dr. Faulkner’s earlier book The Created Cosmos, discusses astronomy by examining the scientific data in light of Scripture. The Expanse of Heaven starts by discussing ancient cosmologies before turning to the nighttime sky. You’ll learn about the earth, our moon, planets and satellites in our own solar system, the sun, stars, vast stellar distances, diversity among stars, and galaxies. The book concludes with a look at modern cosmology and God’s Word.
You’ll be captivated by the beauty of the heavens as you tour what God has made. With many detailed graphs, charts, and illustrations, this book glorifies God as Creator while taking a scientific look at what he has made. It’s a must-have for your home, Christian school, or homeschool library. I know how people are fascinated by this topic, and this book will do much to excite and inform you.
Troy Lacey, AiG's correspondence representative, sat down with Dr. Faulkner recently to discuss this new book in the Dragon Hall Bookstore at the Creation Museum. I encourage you to watch the interview below.
