Kirjan kansiliepeestä ja takakannesta:
Christians are increasingly challenged with evolution theories as the only models for the origins and histories of the universe and life. But is there any valid scientifically testable alternative?
In More Than a Theory, Hugh Ross, founder and president of Reasons To Believe, offers a comprehensive, testable creation model. This fascinating book responds to the recent, well-publicized challenges from aggressive atheists to the idea of a Creator. It also reminds the scientific community of what constitutes good science. Furthermore, it supplies Christians with the scientific information they need to defend their conviction that the Creator is the God of the Bible.
Complete with appendices that put competing models for creation and/or evolution to the same kinds of tests, More Than a Theory is a bold and brave work of apologetics that will stir profitable discussion in both the scientific and the religious realms.
"More Than a Theory provids a valuable overview of the many explanations of nature and human origins that compete for acceptance in modern culture. Rather thatn limiting this comparison to a single field such as biology, Hugh Ross compares these explanations with respect to their ability to adequately account for over 100 distinct findings from natural and social sciences. Ross effectively argues that by imposing artificial and unnecessary restraints on scientific inquiry, science loses its claim as a search for truth and simultaneously makes science less attractive to inquiring young minds. Removing those constraints unleashes the power of unbiased exploration in the quest for truth." – Carl A. Koval, kemian professori (University of Colorado)
