From Booklist

As Hugh Ross described in his last book, The Creator and the Cosmos (1993), the present generation is the first to be successful in measuring the universe, resulting in scientific admission of an omnipotent Creator. This news, which should be exciting to the religious community, is receiving more opposition from Christians than from secular scientists. Why? Because it defies the commonly held Christian belief in a recently created universe. In an attempt to reconcile science and religion, Ross discusses how "old earthers" have ostracized "young earthers" with the assertion that creation took place in six 24-hour days about 10,000 years ago. Ross argues that God is not less powerful for allowing the earth to evolve naturally over millions of years. Since God is the Creator of both biblical revelation and the natural world, the Bible is, likewise, consistent with nature. "Now is the time for a ceasefire," Ross pleads. Calling for a council of pastors, scientists, and evangelical leaders, Ross proposes abolishing the bitterness and polarization this issue has caused without compromising the integrity of either side. Extremely well documented, Creation and Time is more than a good read. It is a call for action. A relevant addition to any library. Patty O'Connell

Format: Paperback
I appreciate Dr. Hugh Ross for writing this book, first because there are not many books out addressing this issue of creation and time. Second, it helps us to rethink and strengthen our position on the creation and evolution debate. I believe, this book was primarily written to address the debate between young-earth and old-earth (or universe) creationists. However, this book does more than just address the issues. It is more of a plea for Christian to be more peaceful and Christ-like on the matter. Here, Ross is hardly a compromiser-he is an old-earth advocate, and attempts to justify his beliefs all throughout this book.
There are several "good" things Hugh Ross says. First, he reminds us that one is NOT weak in his or her faith just because he or she might believe in the evolutionary process of Creation. Belief in "how" or the mechanism God took to create the universe is silent enough to take a hard dogmatic stance. Therefore, Christians should not condemn each other, rather carefully study the issues and share their convictions to be more in line with the truth.
Second, he teaches us that taking a stance on scientific age of the universe does not imply evolution by natural means. Even if one negates God, evolutionism is still ludicrous. Sound scientific evidence points to an age (although not in line with young-earth view) that make it virtually impossible for all life as we know it to evolve out of random events. In fact, the age of the universe and many beautiful scientific discoveries points to a God. For this reason, Chapter 7 of this book, I believe, is one of his stronger chapters.
There are many things that also troubled me. Primarily, I did not appreciate Dr. Ross' caustic dismissal of Presuppositionalism.

Dr. Ross rescues the Christian church from the dubious error of maintaining a militant stance regarding the age of the earth. While Gallup reports that nearly half the adults in the United States believe that the earth was created in the last 10,000 years, 99% of America's practicing scientists disagree. Dr. Ross adeptly closes that gap with a lucid presentation of the scientific evidence for an old earth presented from a thoroughly orthodox Christian worldview. More than just a compelling contribution to the age-of-the-earth issue, Creation and Time is a definitive work.

With his PhD in Astronomy, Dr. Ross applies scintallating logic to skillfully discern between accurate scientific arguments and those with faulty presuppositions, leaving the reader with overwhelming evidence for an earth that is billions of years old. Then, with all gentleness, he harmonizes this data with a conservative Christian theology which maintains the inerrancy and authority of the Bible, including Genesis Chapter 1. Although Ross himself is a Christian, reviewers have failed to recognize that his compassionate reconciliation of Genesis and science is equally suitable reading for the three largest religions of the world: Jewish, Muslim, and Christian.

If you have ever wondered how it all started this is the first book you should read.

I don't understand how someone can honestly say that Dr. Ross loosely interprets the Bible in this book. I am a very conservative Christian that takes a literal interpretation of the Bible and there is nothing in Dr. Ross' interpretation that runs counter to my interpretation. He is not loose.
People can disagree with him, but to attack this book solely on the basis of the age of the universe is unscholarly, uneducated, and just plain foolish. God gave us a mind; use it! God gave us all of nature and told us it tells about Him; listen to nature and you will see it agrees with the Bible.

Creation and Timing According to Hugh Ross:

In his book, "The Creator and the Cosmos: How the Latest Scientific Discoveries Reveal God", Hugh Ross tells us that he was a scientist and an astronomer practically from the moment he was born. He informs us that a decade or two later, he decided to read the various scriptures from the different world religions comparing their scriptures with science. Then he came across the Bible, and he was shocked to discover that the Bible is one hundred percent scientifically accurate. The Old Testament was scientifically accurate 3000 years ago when they were writing it. The New Testament was scientifically accurate 1900 years ago when they were writing it. And, the Bible is still Scientifically Accurate in our day and age right now!

Hugh Ross figured that any book of scripture which is scientifically accurate must be a revelation from the True God. Once he realized that the Bible is scientifically accurate, then he committed his life to Christ.

Hugh Ross isn't the only one to have had such an experience. I relate deeply with Hugh Ross, because I too had Science itself point me directly to the Bible and the Biblical God, because I too can clearly see how the Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price which were given to us by the Biblical God are 100 percent scientifically accurate and match with reality. You can say that it was my scientist friends and Science itself which converted me to Jesus Christ, the Biblical God.

In his book, "The Creator and the Cosmos: How the Latest Scientific Discoveries Reveal God", as well as online at his Reasons to Believe website, Hugh Ross PhD. has articles and chapters entitled, "Big Bang -- The Bible Taught It First!
