Format: Hardcover
We already own many science books from Master Books which we utilize often. So, when the opportunity came up to review Our Created Moon I was very excited to share this with my children and add it to our collection.

Revised and updated, Our Created Moon is written in question and answer format with interesting facts and engaging pictures and some hand-on moon activities as well.

At the beginning of each chapter, learning objectives and words to recognize are clearly written out.

Included in the book: Moon phases, solar system facts, NASA missions, origin theories, purposes of the Moon (helped me to finally understand why Easter changes dates each year), the Moon in scripture, scriptural helps in upholding Creationism, specific features to observe in your own 'Moon watch', and the possibility of Moon colonization.

My kids enjoyed this informative, easy to grasp, well written guide to the Moon. In addition, they had fun calculating their weight on other planets and doing the flip pages where you can watch the phases of the moon at the bottom of the pages.

Don DeYoung's book about the moon contains universal arguments that have been around for a long time, but are not well known. His previous book, The Moon: Its Origin and Significance was written many years ago, also with Dr. Whitcomb as co-author. The moon-earth-sun system is the only known place in the universe where they appear as the same relative size in the sky, enabling total eclipses. Other fascinating facts about the moon make this an invaluable book for young people to study.

Format: Hardcover
"Our Created Moon" is an interesting science book on the moon for high school age on up. The book was written from a Christian perspective and included references to Bible verses and to God as the Creator of the universe.

There were five chapters. The information was covered in a question-answer format. The full-color illustrations, diagrams, and pictures were lovely and easy-to-understand. There was also moon trivia throughout the book. Each chapter included suggestions for moon-related activities that the reader can do. There was also a glossary in the back of the book.

Chapter One had 16 questions covering basic information, including what is a moon, how far away is the moon, what keeps the moon in the sky, how large is the moon, why do we see only one side of the moon, what caused the lunar craters, and what are moon rocks like.

Chapter Two had 14 questions referring to the history of the moon, including what lunar origin theory dominates today, what is the Roche limit, what is the creation view of the moon, why was the moon created on the forth day, how old is the moon, and what is lunar regression.

Chapter Three had 11 questions about the purpose of the moon, including is the moon a useful night light, what is the lunar calendar, does the moon affect our seasons and weather, and what natural resources are on the moon.

Chapter Four had 10 questions about the moon in Scripture, including what does the moon symbolize biblically, what is the 'language of appearance' in Scripture, what does the Old Testament say about moon worship, and how prevalent was moon worship in the Ancient Near East.

Format: Hardcover
Our Created Moon is an excellent resource to have on hand for the study of the moon. It is filled with beautiful images and tons of information about the moon. The clearly stated objectives help the student (and teacher) to find the information that need/want for their study. Each chapter has key words to look for during the reading and then a word review at the end. The chapters also contain "moon activities" that allow the student to actively apply the knowledge they gained during the chapter. The appendix contains a glossary and references.

I would highly recommend this book for a unit study on the moon or just to learn more about God's creation.

I received a copy of this book from Master Books for the purpose of an honest review
