The Source   The Source
By: John Clayton and Nils Jansma
ISBN # 1582291934

What is the origin of the world and of life itself?

• Did a series of accidents and evolution bring about the world as we know it? Or is there a design and purpose behind it all?

• And if there is a design, is there an ultimate designer?

A number of years ago, John Clayton, a second-generation atheist and respected scientist and teacher, set out to disprove the Bible from a scientific point of view. Instead, his six-year study brought him to a profound faith in the God of the Bible.

Now, in this highly informative and easy to understand book, John Clayton and Nils Jansma—a geotechnical engineer and geologist—present convincing evidence that the Bible and the facts of science agree. As the public moves away from a belief in God as Creator of our heaven and earth, it becomes imperative that all believers be well informed on this vital subject. This book will become a resource you will use again and again.

With unfailing intellectual honesty, John Clayton pierces the clouds of tradition that obscure, what the Bible actually says, showing that what it says agrees with rigorous scientific facts. In The Source he shows that good Bible study and good science do not conflict. Based on his own studies, he changed from a militant atheist to a believer in the God who reveals Himself in the Bible.
