How did God create the universe, earth, and Life?
Two Stage Biblical Creation is a refreshing “back-to-the Bible” approach to God’s creation of the heavens and the earth. Dr. Arnold digs through ten insightful creation theories, gathering their most Biblically supported claims into one solid, unified theory.
Many books have proposed creation theories, but other books support or modify just one theory. This approach has resulted in creation theories with one or more weaknesses.
Beginning with over 100 Bible creation text, and the Biblically supported claims of ten major theories, a solid Biblical creation theory emerges. That theory also matches the universe around us.
In 1915 Albert Einstein developed his famous general theory of relativity. Einstein realized that his theory predicts that the universe is expanding. But if the universe is expanding, we can envision the history of the universe in reverse, which means that the universe had a beginning at some point in the past.
British atheist Fred Hoyle proposed that the universe had no beginning. He scoffed at the idea of a sudden beginning of the universe, mockingly calling that powerful event the “Big Bang.”
The Bible doesn't reveal the exact means God used, but it took a Bible scholar-physicist to put it all together. Abbé Georges Lemaître ran the expansion backward. If the universe has been expanding, and we run the expansion backward, we come to “In the beginning.”
Stephen Hawking remarked that “It would be very difficult to explain why the universe should have begun in just this way, except as the act of a God who intended to create beings like us.”
Join me in looking into the origin of time, space, matter-energy, and the precise laws of our universe... laws perfectly balanced for human life. How did it all get here? What is its source? And why are we here to seek that source?
Together, you and I are about to enter one of the greatest adventures possible. Tunneling back in time toward the beginning of the universe, we will probe into the most Biblical claims of ten notable creation theories. We will gather those claims into a unified creation theory that explains the origin of the heavens and the earth.
Above all else, we will explore the eyewitness report of the One who was there. We will seek the answers about the universe
from the Bible, the very words of the Creator: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
