Read full description of the books:
"IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH. "-Genesis 1:1
One of the most commonly held beliefs among Christians and non Christians alike is that science and Scripture absolutely and irreconcilably contradict each other about the age of the earth. While most scientists affirm an "old universe" theory, may Christians favor a "young universe" interpretation and somewhere in between, million of devout Christian who respect scientific finding are deeply and painfully torn.
"How can we love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength if we must separate our minds from our faith? " asks Dr. Hugh Ross, an astrophysicist and a Bible-believing Christian. "Such a separation violates the very meaning of faith."
In Creation and Time, Dr. Ross provides a solution to the creation-date controversy that requires no compromise by either the scientist trusting in the facts of nature or the Christian holding to the inerrancy of Scripture.
"Dr. Ross graciously examines the scientific merits of a young-earth creation and its biblical foundation. He not only demonstrates the more likely age of the universe, but also celebrates the greatness and majesty of its Creator. Creation and Time is a valuable gift to the Christian community."
-Chuck Smith, Jr. , senior pastor, Capo Beach Calvary Church, Capo Beach, CA
"This is a most important book that should be taught in every church and in the every school to stop the unwarranted war between science and religion."
-Allan Sandage, Ph.D. , astronomer, Observatories of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, recipient of the Crafoord Prize
"Creation and Time is the best book on this topic in print. It is a must for anyone interested in the conflict between science and Scripture. Dr. Ross' pleas to overzealous 'young earthers' not to make the age of the earth a test of orthodoxy is long overdue. "
-Norman L. Geisler, dean of Southern Evangelical Seminary
"This is a book whose time has come. Never has there been a more urgent moment to staighten out this deep misundertanding in the evangelical community."
-Ralph D. Winter, general director of the U.S. Center for World Missions

Read information about the authorHUGH ROSS launched his career at age seven when he went to the library to find out why stars are hot. Physics and astronomy captured his curiosity and never let go. At age seventeen he was the youngest person ever to serve as director of observations for Vancouver's Royal Astronomical Society. With the help of a provincial scholarship and a National Research Council (NRC) of Canada fellowship, he completed his undergraduate degree in physics (University of British Columbia) and graduate degrees in astronomy (University of Toronto). The NRC also sent him to the United States for postdoctoral studies. At Caltech he researched quasi-stellar objects, or "quasars," some of the most distant and ancient objects in the universe.
Hugh's unshakable confidence that God's revelation in Scripture and nature do not, will not, and cannot contradict became his unique message. Communicating that message as broadly and clearly as possible became his mission, wholeheartedly encouraged by family and friends. He and his colleagues at Reasons To Believe keep tabs on the frontiers of research to share with scientists and nonscientists alike the thrilling news of what's being discovered and how it connects with biblical theology. In this realm, he has written many books, including: The Fingerprint of God, The Creator and the Cosmos, Beyond the Cosmos, The Genesis Question, A Matter of Days, Creation As Science, and Why the Universe Is the Way It Is, due to be released October 1, 2008.
Between writing books and articles and hosting Creation Update, a weekly live webcast, Hugh travels the world challenging students and faculty, churches and professional groups to consider what they believe and why. He presents a persuasive case for Christianity without applying pressure. Because he treats people's questions and comments with respect, he is in great demand as a speaker and as a talk-radio and television guest.
Hugh lives in Southern California with his wife, Kathy, and two sons—and two cats.
