Did the universe start with a big bang? Does distant starlight prove the universe is old? What are black holes and how do they form? Is the gospel written in the stars?
Secular astronomers teach that the universe formed more than 12 billion years ago starting with the big bang. This Pocket Guide to Astronomy examines the strong evidence that points to a young age for the universe and helps give you a biblical view of astronomy. Truly, the infinite size and complexity of the universe proclaim the awesome majesty and power of its designer, God.
The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice is not heard. Their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. (Psalm 19:1–4)
