More Than a Theory: Revealing a Testable Model for Creation

Baker, 2009
ISBN: 9780801013270


Christians are increasingly challenged with evolution theories as the only models for the origins and histories of the universe and life. But is there any valid scientifically testable alternative?

More Than a Theory offers a comprehensive, testable creation model and supplies Christians with the scientific information they need to defend their conviction that the Creator is the God of the Bible. Complete with appendices that put competing models for creation and/or evolution to the same kinds of tests, More Than a Theory is a bold and brave work that will stir profitable discussion in both the scientific and the religious realms.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.

Praise for the Print Edition

The more we discover about the universe, the more I appreciate our Creator. And that’s why I’m grateful for Hugh Ross. This book will not only expand your appreciation of God, it will stretch your faith.

Mark Batterson, lead pastor, National Community Church

In the physical sciences, we are continually concerned with the question ‘Can a theory stand up to the latest experimental results?’ In this book Ross suggests a great many tests for his understanding of issues related to origins.

Henry F. Schaefer III, Graham Perdue Professor of Chemistry, University of Georgia

To all who think that belief in a Creator requires a blind leap of faith, this book serves strong notice otherwise! The creation model is not only testable, it passes multiple scientific tests with flying colors.

—Mark Mittelberg, speaker and best-selling author

Ross effectively argues that by imposing artificial and unnecessary restraints on scientific inquiry, science loses its claim as a search for truth and simultaneously makes science less attractive to inquiring young minds. Removing those constraints unleashes the power of unbiased exploration in the quest for truth.

—Carl A. Koval, professor and interim faculty director of the Renewable and Sustainable Energy Initiative, University of Colorado
