Publisher's Description

This four-color, Gold Medallion Book Award winner is a perfect tool that offers solid, biblical answers to some of the tough questions kids ask about evolution and our world.

 “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?

Kids are daily exposed to the theory of evolution by the media and public schools. It’s not safe to assume that your kids will reject that theory. It’s up to us as parents and Christian leaders to make sure our children know the truth about the creation of the world. With thousands of evidences to prove He created and sustains the universe, It Couldn’t Just Happen will fascinate kids with fun activities and examples of God’s marvelous works.

Lawrence O. Richards' book It Couldn't Just Happen: Knowing the Truth about God's Awesome Creation tackles one of the big questions that the scientific world and Christians disagree on: Which is more accurate, creationism or evolution? The first three sections of the book go over information on the formation of the earth, plant life, and animal life. They describe the evolutionist's point of view and contrast it with the Christian viewpoint. In some areas the two are in agreement, but in other areas, such as the age of the planet, the length of eras of certain reptiles and mammals, and the role of oceans and stars and currents, they can disagree radically. Logical points are made by the creationist side to justify a God-honoring stance.

Although the book covers many specific terms, scientific ideas, and historical figures and events, all are presented in a way that makes sense to lay readers. As someone who has read many complicated chapters from science books in school, I found this book better able to explain the ideas of both evolution and creationism. The more personal tone (instead of a bland scientific lecture style) was a factor in readability and understanding the concepts.

Each chapter ends with a "Just for Fun" section that lets the reader exercise the concepts that were discussed in the chapter. It helps wrap up ideas and helps the reader really commit facts and concepts to memory. – Laura Vela, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    My daughter has been using this in Classical Conversations this year. It's written in an understanding way to look at Creation from God's perspective while also discussing evolutionary ideas appropriately. Nicely written and creates good discussion. It acknowledges the need for humility because after all, we don't have all the pieces of the puzzle when it comes to science because no human being was there from the beginning.

    I have been using these books in my middle school Sun. class. Each lesson is based on a Bible passage concerning a topic for growth. The chapters are not long and can easily be added to if desired - or used as discussion starters.

    This book is an excellent book. It is recommended for ages 7-12, but I enjoyed it as an adult and found it very useful to teach others about creation science. It provides many specific details about the wonders of creation that just aren't easily found and put together in such a logical and easy to understand manner anywhere else. I cannot emphasize how highly I recommend this book!

    I loved this book...from the title to the pictures to the way it was laid out! It is full of reasons why evolution can't work and why other theories fail and how the Bible can fill in some of those blanks. It is a great fit for the 9-12 year old who is questioning why their teacher teaches them one thing and they are learning something different in school. There are many Bible verses that are included to make the point on topic and most would be great memory verses. The end of the chapters have some great Just For Fun activities to do as a whole family...great family time! I wouldn't go much younger than 9 or 10 because it can be a little in depth in places. I did review this as an e-book..but am going to look for the physical copy to share with my kids!

    If you have kids who are questioning or are just looking for more reinforcement of faith...pick this up!

    I was given a copy of this book by BookSneeze for an honest review. No other compensation was given and I was not required to even like the book!

Q: This teaches YOUNG earth (around 6k years), right? NOT the GAP theory, which would insert millions of years, as though God would use that when Hebrew/Greek and Science clearly refute that. I want this clear before I invest in this for my kids.

A:

Dr. Richards does not specifically support any particular viewpoint on the age of the earth, based on the fact that it is not revealed in scripture. Although he puts forth the 24 hour literal creation day, he also presents the gap, day-age and revelatory day theories as views that Christians can hold to. However, he does make it clear that, based on the scriptures, the theory of evolution cannot be a legitimate Christian view.
