The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims His handiwork.
Psalm 19:1 (RSV)

Few of us can venture outside on a clear, dark night and not pause for a silent, reflective look at the stars. For countless centuries people have felt a sense of wonder about the heavens. How did our universe come into being? Has it always been here? Is our existence due to random chance or supernatural design? Is God "out there"? If so, what is He like?

Traditionally, the church has answered such questions with Scripture, while science has contributed theories and formulas of its own. Torn between a deep respect for church doctrines and an intellectual need for answers that support what their senses are telling them, many Christians have avoided such discussions altogether.

Actually, the two sides are no longer that far apart. In The Creator and the Cosmos, astrophysicist Hugh Ross explains how recent scientific measurements of the universe have clearly pointed to the existence of God. Whether you're looking for scientific support for your faith or new reasons to believe, The Creator and the Cosmos will enable you to see the creator for yourself.

"Early in this century philosophy rapidly descended down the black hole of logical positivism where God was seemingly erased from the universe. Few could have imagined that by the end of this century breakthroughs in science -- quantum mechanics and astrophysics -- would ascend out of the abyss to posit the existence of God in the magnificent and endless cathedral of the cosmos. With admirable lucidity, Dr. Hugh Ross navigates through breathtaking panoramas of scientific evidence upon which he builds a compounding case for the biblical world view. With the integrity and credibility of the devoted scientist, he handles a broad range of considerations, giving us invaluable apologetic material -- from the design argument, probability, to the facts of physics -- that bears witness to the existence of a Creator who is personal and transcendent, whom we can glimpse with a new awe."

"A compelling summary of scientific evidence that supports belief in God and the Word of God, written on a level even the non-technically trained lay person can understand."

"In Cretaor and the Cosmos, Dr. Hugh Ross shows how recent cosmological discoveries clearly indicate the universe was created with many characteristics fine-tuned for our life. Though many scientists may resist the logical conclusion, the Creator implied by the scientific evidence is exactly consistent with the God revealed in the Bible."

"The Creator and the Cosmos constitutes a remarkable journay through the most recent scientific findings, providing overwhelming support for design in our universe. Dr. Ross has documented the evidence for design in our universein such a thorough yet readable style that it will prove to be of great value both to the science student as well as to the interested layperson."

Astrophysicist Hugh Ross earned his B. S. in physics from the University of British Columbia and his M. S. and Ph. D. in astronomy from the University of Toronto. For several years he did research on quasars and galaxies as a post-doctoral fellow at the California Institute of Technology. He currentl serves as the president of Reasons to Believe, a non-profit corporation, and hosts a weekly, internationally broadcast television series by the same name.
