from the Preface
In view of the wonders that God has wrought in the natural world, can the Christian forbear to speak the praises of his Creator? Yet so much of the modern study of those wonders has drawn the minds of men away from God. That makes it even more imperative that we speak out about the true study of science. Only from the Bible can we be properly guided into a right view of science. This present volume is one more attempt to give proper direction to the investigation and use of God's orderly world. Feeble though it may be, if this volume can inspire some to greater praise of the Creator, if it can turn some from the pitfalls of secular science, and if it can stimulate edifying discussion among God's people, it will not have been written in vain.
The chapters of this book were originally written for The Christian School Builder and appeared as twelve separate articles from August 1988 to July 1989. It was then suggested that study questions and illustrations be added and that they be published in book form. Some changes have been made in the text, but the reader will be able to see many things that relate the subject to the Christian school setting. This should not cause a problem to nonschool readers, since a main challenge of science is how we teach it to the rising generation in our schools.
The book is intended for personal reading and will likely find its way into home and school libraries. With the study questions provided, this book could well be used as a group study guide. The "To guide your understanding" questions can be answered largely (but not entirely) from a careful study of the chapter text itself. The "For your thought and discussion" questions are for further research and group consideration.
