Descriptions and pronouncements about nature from the Bible are considered in light of our current knowledge. It turns out that these ancient descriptions are highly accurate and sophisticated. In several instances the Bible describes phenomena that have only recently been discovered by modern science. How did these ancient authors know all this if not by divine inspiration.

Another fascinating book for junior high readers. Following in the footsteps of early explorers, we look at interesting features of our globe such as wind, currents in the sea, the tides, earth’s magnetic field, rocks, glaciers, and river systems. Later we move to the atmosphere and exploration by hot air balloon, airplanes and space vehicles. Thought provoking questions at the end of each chapter make this book suitable for geography and social studies (history).
