Purposeful Design by Jay Schabacker - Review

I received this book in exchange for my review. A small amount of advertisement is included in the post. 

PurposefulDesignCoverPurposeful Design beautifully reveals the principles of science that operate our world. It masterfully explains the elements of designs that make life possible, and compellingly presents evidence that a loving Creator God was purposeful in these designs. The author, Mr. Schabacker, a former aerospace scientist and businessman, seems to know the art of storytelling. The book delights the senses with beautifully depictive pictures, and easy to understand explanations of complex science concepts.

Within the framework of the seven days of creation, Mr. Schabacker, details the earth’s orbit, speed and rotation. He explains the rain cycle, the importance of vegetation, the seasons, the phases of the moon, and the gravitational pull on the ocean tides. He explains celestial navigation and the innate instincts of bird migration patterns. Bible verses are interwoven.

About the Author:
Jay and Nancy Schabacker
Jay and Nancy Schabacker
Jay Schabacker’s varied careers – from aerospace to finance to church ministries and theology have led him to recently research and pen the uplifting book – Purposeful Design. Now an enthusiastic devotee of Bible studies and things eternal, Jay travels with his wife, Nancy, to contemplate the Pyramids of Egypt and the Great Wall of China – studying the marvels of the world around us. The book, Purposeful Design, about the wonderful world we are honored to live and work in – “the Universe all the way down to the smallest strand of DNA” – is the result of his latest research.
Jay is proud of his four daughters, six grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. He and his wife, Nancy, now enjoy living on the shore of picturesque Lake Murray in Lexington, South Carolina, where he raises orchids. They are members of the Lexington Presbyterian Church (PCA) of Lexington, South Carolina.  Visit Jay's Website for more information.
My Thoughts:
As a Christian and a mom who loves to instruct my children, I found this book very intriguing. The pictures are colorful and attractive. The illustrations are eye-catching and educational. I even learned something. Jay takes each day of Biblical creation and expounds on it, explaining the "whys" and "hows". He explains how the "rules" of nature keep our universe in order, and how could that have happened unless there was a Designer with a Purpose? He talks about the moon cycles, the rain cycle, vegetation, ocean tides, animal instincts, the stars and so much more.  He shows clearly how everything in our universe point to God and Jesus. There are pictures of strange creatures - God's sense of humor?  And after giving information on the human body - creation Day 6, Jay reminds us of the need to refresh ourselves once a week. Day 7 - the day of rest. Throughout the book Jay incorporated Scripture verses. This book would certainly make a nice coffee table center piece, or a gift for a friend, or just a great book for kids to enjoy and learn from.
