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, astronomer 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.

Praise for the Print Edition
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 layperson can understand.
—Walter L. Bradley, professor and head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Texas A&M University
In The Creator 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.
—Dr. Kyle M. Cudworth, Yerkes Observatory, University of Chicago
The Creator and the Cosmos constitutes a remarkable journey through the most recent scientific findings, providing overwhelming support for design in our universe. Dr. Ross has documented the evidence for design in our universe in 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.
