The universe was created with purpose and reason, and modern science with all of its experiments, exploration, and sophistication has never proven otherwise. In fact, as author Dr. Danny Faulkner makes plain, advanced science argues more for a created cosmology than a big bang. Written for the upper-level student through the well-read layman, Universe by Design explores the universe, explaining its origins and discussing the historical development of cosmology from a creationist viewpoint.


To the late Roger L. St. Peter, one of the best friends and finest Christian men that I ever knew. This book would have been far better had he been able to help me with it.
