Editorial Reviews

Review

A long time ago in a galaxy not far away, ignorant folks believed in spontaneous generation, wrongly thinking that life simply jumped out of non-living matter. As Carl Gallups so rightly shows us, those people are still around today. They're called atheists. --Joe Kovacs, bestselling author of The Divine Secret and Shocked by the Bible

Few authors articulate the intellectual condition of the church as clearly and effectively as does Carl Gallups in his new book, The Magic Man in the Sky. Compelling story telling, careful construction of thought, and solid theological foundations provide one of the best defenses of a biblical world view currently available. I solidly endorse Gallups' work. --Mark Foley, Ph.D. President, University of Mobile

Carl Gallups is quickly emerging as one of the most passionate, courageous and stimulating Christian radio talk-show hosts in the country. He is absolutely fearless. --Jeffrey T. Kuhner, columnist, radio talk-show personality and President of the Edmund Burke Institute for American Renewal

From the Inside Flap

In The Magic Man in the Sky, Carl Gallups has given us an exciting insight into the many unanswered questions of evolution theory and, based on biblical truths - both prophecies and promises, the possibilities of other worlds and realities denied by evolutionists. With his open and frank approach, supported by extensive research and information from learned professionals in their respective fields, Carl challenges believers and unbelievers to take a serious look at the subjects discussed in this book. Ultimately, Carl invites every reader to seriously consider the gravity and consequences of accepting or rejecting the truth presented. In this hour of all-but-universal darkness, a bright ray of hope and confidence shines forth from the truths of this book. In a time when lives are marked by a growing hunger for spiritual realities, Carl Gallups reveals the truth that real science and Holy Scripture are inseparably linked to verify that behind all creation there is an intelligent designe

I actually would give this book 3 and a half stars. I'm very familiar with the work of Pastor Carl Gallups through his ministry on Youtube. I frequently view his videos and ever since he announced this book, he's promoted it like crazy. In one interview, he stated that it is not only a Christian apologetics book, but a book aimed at atheists and agnostics. I just finished reading it, and I'd like to discuss what I disliked first.

I don't think any atheist would read this book from cover to cover. Not necessarily because they'll scoff at his evidence, but simply because I feel Carl takes too many shots at atheists. By that I mean he overgeneralizes the secular community by assuming all of them willfully choose to deny and try to refute the existence of God. Not all secularists believe in the evolutionary theory, let alone accept it as fact. I just feel that he could have spoke of them a little bit more objectively. He could have also done a better job convincing the reader why Christianity is the only true religion.

I study Christian apologetics a lot so most of what I read were things I already knew. That's why I personally feel the book wasn't that groundbreaking. Let me discuss the things I did like though.

He made some very good points showing the evolutionary theory to be far from settled science. It actually makes a lot of sense why he and a lot of other Christians claim evolution to be a religion. Read the book to understand how. I also liked how he ties in Christian beliefs and real science with vivid and thought-provoking analogies. He had quite a few great arguments against the common questions atheists and agnostics ask like "Why would God allow evil and suffering in the world if He's good?

The Magic Man in the Sky is an insightful, entertaining defense of the Christian faith. Carl Gallups delivers a dynamic, unapologetic stance for God and Intelligent Design. He uses science(such as quantum physics), analogies, the Scripture, and history to show the irrefutable proof of God's existence. Never again let an atheist tell you that you can't prove the existence of God! The Christian reader will be encouraged to find that the Bible can be proven and the evidence God has displayed in History as well as His creation. The reader who is unsure of God's existence will be given undeniable proof and God's plan for salvation. This book will certainly be enjoyed by all who read it!

A relevant book for those who wish to deepen their faith and know that their faith is based on truth, historical facts, true scientific information and logical thinking. It is a great book on apologetics - giving a defense for the Christian faith. I would have liked the author to use a more modern version of the Bible when he included quotes as the old King James version (which he used) can be cumbersome to read and takes longer to digest. Overall I enjoyed and found this book easy reading, interesting with thought-provoking examples.

A must read if your child has been indoctrinated by liberal high schools or college. and I am making my kids read it as well this summer. God is real and too many people worship the creation not the creator. This answered all the arguments my daughter throws at me and I have been a Christian all my life. Kids these days dont want to hear "You just have to have faith" they want to know why and this book is excellent

To Christians, the Bible (God's Word), says they are obligated to witness to the lost to lead them to Salvation by faith through grace to Christ as their Saviour. The author of this book starts out with a Christian college student that is close friends with a classmate who is an atheist, and wants to lead him to Christ.
The atheist confronts him with questions pertaining to the existence of God, and gives his perception that if he can't see God, why should he believe in Him or the Trinity (Father, Son, & Holy Spirit [3 in 1])
The Christian student is challenged and through his pastor and study comes up with viable truths that can't be disputed that God (not Allah) is real, as is His omnipotence, omnipresence, and omniscience.
That the Gospel (Death, Burial, and Resurrection) by the shedding of Jesus' blood is substitutionary payment for ALL peoples sins when they repent and accept Christ as virgin born, the Son of God in the flesh, when they ask him to save them, that they'll be "sealed unto the day of redemption" (Ephesians 4:30 KJV)
Reading this book will help not only preachers but also laymen with being able to witness to not only atheists, but also agnostics, and not only other non-Christians but ones that are faiths that claim to be Christian, but Biblically are not in their doctrines and what they claim brings forth eternal salvation.

I really liked this book. Good factual substance written clearly enough for a part time reader like myself. Not only did it help build my faith, but allow some solid answers for my non Christian friends. There are several people who begin a faith in Christ because someone gave them this book.If you are a christian, I would recommend getting two, one for yourself and another for that person you would want to reach.
