Creation Apologetics and Astronomy

Excellent for students, church leaders, Christian school teachers, homeschool teachers...anyone who desires to have a firm grasp on the basics of the true science and the Christian faith.

Strengthen your walk and deepen your understanding of the integrity and authority of Scripture! No other document in history makes the bold claims the Bible does, and no other document has the integrity of the Bible. This 7-lesson course will teach you how to defend the young age of the universe and demonstrate the reliability of the biblical accounts of astronomy. Other topics will include the “problem” of distant starlight, the existence of extraterrestrial life, and problems with the big bang hypothesis. God has created the heavens to declare His glory and this course will equip you to proclaim that message.

Students will be involved in reading articles, researching issues related to astronomy from a creationist perspective, watching videos, and completing assignments that uphold the Bible as the ultimate source of truth—even in the field of astronomy.
