It Couldn't Just Happen is a wonderful resource for young people and families to understand the answer to questions of "science" that Christians/children face daily in school and in the media. It helps the reader to understand Creation and the truth with lots of Scriptural references and pictures, as well as, scientific facts and pictures.
Some of the questions it answers are:
“Did Earth begin with a ‘Big Bang’ cosmic explosion?”
“Does science contradict the Bible?”
“What happened to dinosaurs?”
“Is there life on other planets?”
“Did we evolve from apes?”
“What makes my body work on its own?”
Not only does Richards answer these questions, but he includes fun projects for children to try that will reinforce and prove the answers that he has given. This is a great book for parents who want to make sure their children understand WHY we [Christians] believe WHAT we believe about scientific theories and Creation. It would also make a great gift for a student who is interested in science!
I will say that I received the ebook version of this book to review, but if I were purchasing it, I would purchase a print book. The picture in the ebook are not near as nice (and not in color) as the ones in the print book.
