Great encouragement for teens and adults in the world today!

I would recommend that you read no more than a chapter or two each day, maybe as devotional material, or along with your normal daily devotional reading.

This is written about scholars who show proofs for their own faith.

One of the things I hear quite often in conversations concerning origins is that "all real scientists have given up belief in God." For a time, I wondered if that were true. I wondered how science and faith could ever be compatible. But then I was introduced to a brilliant scientist who worked with a creation organization and realized that faith and science are not incompatible. In fact, they dovetail together almost perfectly. Meeting that scientist occurred almost twenty years ago, and since then, I've been exposed to dozens of people who work in various areas of science who have a tremendous faith in God. I've found hundreds of resources that reinforce that. And I've become closely affiliated with at least tow different organizations that attempt to teach the historicity and validity of Genesis as fact.

One of those organizations is Master Books. I have several of their books on my shelves, and am always excited to receive another. And I was pretty excited when I opened the mail and saw On the Seventh Day, edited by John F. Ashton PhD. Aston has compiled short testimonies from over forty different scientists describing why they believe in God.

Certainly, these men and women go against the flow, at least the flow as described by the popular media and the atheistic element in the science community. However, I'm beginning to suspect that those elements might actually be in the minority, or at least much less of a majority than they seem to present. I suspect that there are multitudes more in the scientific community who keep their lives focused on the Creator as they strive to understand his creation.

When it comes to the opinion of the secular scientific community regarding evolution and creation, one of the constant phrases you hear thrown around is "All scientists agree that......" In reality, since views are always changing with the advancement in scientific discoveries and there are often numerous scientific theories supporting these discoveries and their implications, scientific consensus is not always as much of a consensus as we are led to believe.

When you do some digging you will begin to realize that there are numerous credible scientists and academics who are Christians that do not accept evolution as a viable theory of origins and the like. Though contrary to popular belief, their lack of belief in evolution does not impede their ability to do their jobs as scientists and experts in their fields.

On the Seventh Day: Forty Scientists and Academics Explain Why They Believe in God edited by John F. Ashton is a small collection of short accounts from Christian scientists and academics telling us how they became Christians and why they believe in creation.

The accounts are broken into two categories. First, there are accounts under the label reason and faith. These are accounts of people who were brought to faith in Christ through their scientific and academic studies. As they studied they were brought face to face with the truth that evolution is not a credible explanation for life and all it encompasses. Whether in school or working in their field of study, these Christians were hit with the truth of God as creator. There are aerospace engineers, doctors, physicists, educators, psychologists and more.

The second category of testimonies is under the label faith and experience.

Format: Paperback
No one wants to be alone. The only one standing for a cause against an innumerable force.

We cry out as Elijah, fearing we are left all alone and destined to fall.

"I have been very jealous for the Lord, the God of hosts. For the people of Israel have forsaken your covenant, thrown down your altars, and killed your prophets with the sword, and I, even I only, am left, and they seek my life, to take it away." (1 Kings 19:10, ESV)

The Lord answered this fear by reassuring Elijah that not only was God in control of the situation, but that he also had seven thousand more who were faithful to him in Israel. Though Elijah may feel alone in his trial, there were in fact many who stood just as he.

Yet I will leave seven thousand in Israel, all the knees that have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him." (1 Kings 19:18, ESV)

We need this same assurance today. That we are not alone and that God is in control. We need to see the seven thousand.

This is why a book such as, On the Seventh Day, is so important. In the fields of science and academics the pressure to conform to the secular ideas of evolution and humanism can be overwhelming. Believers can feel isolated and alone, without the support they need to continue on in their faith.

On the Seventh Day is comprised of articles written by forty of these believers who struggle to shine as lights in these dark places. In it they share their love for Jesus and science, how they came to faith, and remain faithful in an environment that has mostly rejected even the idea of God.

The book is broken into two sections.
