From the Inside Flap
"In the physical sciences, we are continually concerned with the question 'Can a theory stand up to the latest experimental results?' In this book Ross suggests a great many tests for his understanding of issues related to origins."
--Henry F. Schaefer III, Graham Perdue Professor of Chemistry; director, Center for Computational Quantum Chemistry, University of Georgia
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.
From the Back Cover
"More Than a Theory
provides a valuable overview of the many explanations of nature and human origins that compete for acceptance in modern culture. Rather than 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, professor of chemistry, University of Colorado
"The more we discover about the universe, the more I appreciate our Creator. And that's why I'm grateful for Hugh Ross. This book will not only expand your appreciation of God, it will stretch your faith."--Mark Batterson, lead pastor, National Community Church; author, Wild Goose Chase
"To all who think that belief in a Creator requires a blind leap of faith, this book serves strong notice otherwise! The Creation Model is not only testable, it passes multiple scientific tests with flying colors. Read More Than a Theory yourself to see how Hugh Ross wields data, logic, and evidence to make a powerful and convincing case."--Mark Mittelberg, author, Choosing Your Faith
