Book Review: It Couldn’t Just Happen

I think it was the teacher in me that first was attracted to this book, but it was a “future parent” in me that appreciated it the most.  Because it tackles various topics (dinosaurs, planets, creation, evolution etc.) this book is a great supplement for parents of all higher-elementary/middle school students.  Knowing what is taught in public (and even Christian) schools today, there leaves a lot to be questioned.  This book addresses some of the topics kids (and lets face it, us adults too) are curious about…. {I’m still a huge dinosaur debater!}

Just a few cool additions the author adds:

1. At the end of each “chapter” there are 5 exercises you can do with your children to enhance each topic.

2. The inclusion of verses from the Bible throughout the book are great.  People want to separate science and religion, but these verses tie them together quite nicely.

3. It is definitely a evangelistic tool.  The last section of the book dives into what the Bible says about all the topics, what Jesus taught, and some great comparisons between our modern day knowledge and the past wisdom.

The illustrations and pictures are beautiful and breathtaking, and I think it’s a great tool for parents to have…. after all, there will come a day when your children will have questions, and it’s probably a good thing to have a little back up 🙂

    Thanks, Maureen…Its a great tool for grandparents as well! My granddaughter and I have many “Bible vs. textbook” conversations on our way home from church Sundays. This began in 1st grade when a boy in her class brought in a textbook with the picture of man supposedly evoluting from an ape! She is now entering 6th grade and I need to be prepared for more discussions! God bless you!
