My first read, God, Science and the Bible by Arnold V Page introduced me to the mind of a religious individual who wants to convey the existence of God to all and what it means to us. Mr. Page uses some of his life experiences in his book to convey to the user his genuine belief in the existence of God. He asks us to ask ourselves questions such as about god, about the different religions, and about what the point of our life is.

Having said that, I took this book as a challenge to myself to see if it would convince me of the existence of a god. I have been a non-believer for over 15 years, and I find it hard for anyone or any material to convince me otherwise. I also took this book as a good read to discover what possible notions the author would have for me to convince me of such. As a non-religious person, I was not sure what I would expect from this reading, but I must say it was interesting with the number of facts and examples provided by Mr. Page.

Mr. Page describes the possible existence of a god by using examples from the bible and from science. There are many books out there that try to convince the reader of an existence of a god, but this book provided some good examples and insight into just that. There were several chapters in the book where I learned quite a lot such as his ideas of the moon’s origins.

The book is short at under 200 pages and I found it to be a good read. The reading was easy, and his concepts are easy to follow throughout the book. His concepts flowed well throughout the chapters. There was a lot of information in this book, both scientific and religious but he makes interesting points and answers a few questions about god and how it impacts you in your life.

Though this book posed a challenge to my beliefs, I have not changed my way of thinking, despite the author giving several contentions from a scientific and biblical idea. However, if you have come across this book and are wondering if you should read it, give it a try. It answers some questions and is intriguing to read. I give this book 3 out of 4 stars based on the content and flow of the concepts proposed by the author. I would recommend it to any reader who is not biassed when it comes to religion or facts of science. Give yourself the chance to open your mind and read about this book.

The nonfiction book God, Science and the Bible by Arnold V. Page sets out to open the minds of its readers and shed light on evidence of the existence of an almighty God. Page does so by using evidence of current scientific theories widely accepted by atheists and exploring their fallacies. Physics, biology, and statistics are only some of fields explored to aid in Page’s mission. Instead of incriminating the sciences, the author explains how events in the Bible may adhere to scientific findings once certain holes in the theories are addressed. In addition, life events and historical accounts are also referenced to provide a valuable connection of the Bible to life. God, Science and the Bible is a truly inspiring book that opens the eyes of its readers to the way, the truth, and the life.

This book has many favorable elements such as Page’s relaxed yet polished style of writing as well as new perspectives on the Bible and its relationship to science. The insights provided are quite original and required a deep amount of knowledge, research, time, and curiosity to develop. An example of such would be, “…an orbit created at random by a moon approaching a planet and somehow being captured by it, could have an eccentricity of anything from 0.0 to almost 1.0… it is amazing that the orbits of 65 of the solar system’s 182 moons… have an eccentricity of 0.05 or less.” (433 of 2658 Kindle Edition) Such research and fore planning is rare, and the addition of Page’s remarkable perspective makes this book unique.

There is one aspect which I believe slightly hinders the motion of the book. Some of Page’s explanations of scientific theories, though accurate, do not tell the whole story of what the scientific community believes. Therefore, some rebukes the author makes neglect pertinent details to a couple of scientific theories. This is trivial in the grand scheme of the book, as the evidence supplied throughout outweighs these minor technicalities.

I rate this book 4 out of 4. The book is very well published, and it delivers a clear message to its audience. It provides creative insight to age old questions of doubters and atheists utilizing a multitude of evidence and approaches. Written in a logical and uplifting manner that flows well, I would recommend this book highly.

God, Science and the Bible is most suitable for audiences who have doubted the word of God or of God’s existence and are willing to keep an open mind to explore the possibility of an omnipresent, loving God. I would also recommend audiences who may have lost their connection with God and are pursuing to re-establish that connection through an inspiring book. Adults would receive the most benefit from this book as some concepts may require a more developed mind to fully grasp; however, there is no profanity to deter any ambitious young readers.

God, Science and the Bible by Arnold V Page is an attempt to explain creationism and answer some questions about God through science and history. Is there a God? How were the Earth, moon, and stars created? How was the universe created? Are evolution and natural selection valid theories? Was Jesus real, and did he really come back to life? How old is the Earth? Did the biblical flood happen? Is carbon dating accurate? And finally, is the Bible the true word of God, and who wrote it? Find out the answers to these questions and more in God, Science and the Bible.

In his non-fiction work, Page attempts to answer some big questions with a new look at science and information from the Bible. He first starts with an introduction that encourages readers to have an open mind to the answers to these questions. He tells a story with the moral of the story being to “ask again.” He argues that even if we already know, or think we know, the answers to these questions, we should ask again. With this mindset and with an open mind, I began to read. In nine rather short chapters, Page outlines a scientific basis for creationism and explains how some natural phenomena occurred.

It’s important to note here that, while he studied engineering, Page is not a geologist or a physicist. He’s a religious leader. While I agree that the science and the arguments seem sound to me, I am neither a physicist nor a geologist. I found this book to be very well researched, and the endnotes extend the book by quite a bit. However, the author directly references Wikipedia, which is a big red flag for me.

For the most part, I enjoyed reading this book. I was surprised at how engrossed in the book I was, barely even willing to stop and eat. Indeed, I read it in one sitting! I was most convinced by the arguments for the existence of some divine creator and the reality of Jesus’ life and resurrection. I have to admit that some of the science had my mind spinning, and I had to read some paragraphs a few times to wrap my mind around these concepts. I feel as though the author tried and failed to explain his ideas fully.

I did have quite a few problems with this book. I don’t think the science was very well explained at all, and I don’t believe the arguments based on science were fleshed out enough for me to change my mind about creationism. Also, there’s a chapter in the book dedicated to Page’s experience going to Chile, which I found out of place. It left me baffled and confused. He also references future books he plans to write, which I didn’t like, as I felt the book would have benefited from some of the topics designed for the future works. This book is written conversationally, and there were many places where this was difficult to read. I did not think the style was conducive to the scientific topics.

Overall, I wasn’t convinced by the science but found the historical accounts to be compelling. I found some errors, but I believe this book was edited well. I would recommend this book to people of any religion or non-religion who have an open mind and are willing to read novel ideas. I don’t believe it was entirely convincing, but it is certainly an interesting perspective on creationism. Because of all the problems with the book, including the style and lack of scientific foundation, I rate this book two out of four stars.

I am an agnostic. I simply believe that the existence of God is unknowable. So, when I saw this book titled God, Science and the Bible written by Arnold V Page, a Methodist minister and also a pastor of an evangelic church, I knew I couldn’t pass it just like that. I had to read it and find out what it has to offer to this, if I may boldly say, lifelong-debate about the origin of the earth, human existence, and even God’s, through the perspective of both science and religion.

In the introduction, Page asks us, the agnostics, “who are not entirely, completely sure” about our answer to this question of the existence of God. He asks us to try to put aside our current answers for the moment and consider the possibility of some different ones. The first chapter is titled “Is There A God?” Here, Page correctly starts by saying that two things that people use against any belief of God’s existence are the evils of religions and the problem of pain, which I agree with him. He explains that religion can be used either for good or evil. He even dives deeper by proving to us that most big wars like The American Civil War, World War One, The Russian Revolution, and World War Two were not motivated by religion. He also states that most human sufferings are caused by human beings themselves. Sufferings like Warfare, violence, terrorism, tyranny, injustice, and corruption are perpetrated by human beings, so discrediting the existence of God based on these will be a mistake. In the first subchapter, in chapter two, he states problems of atheism, according to him. He uses William Paley’s words to emphasize that when you see a watch, it is clear that it has been designed and that the designer must exist even though you don’t know him or haven’t seen him. He says that the same logic should be applied when questioning the existence of the universe. He further criticizes the Big Bang Theory by showing its loopholes. In chapter 3, Page used historical facts, theories, and logical reasoning to prove that the resurrection really happened. I will stop here because I don’t want to give out much. You have to get this book and find out more yourself. I assure you, Page goes all out to convince us that indeed God exists and that we should all believe in Him if we want to join Him in “His everlasting kingdom.”

I won’t lie, I did enjoy reading this book. It was different, and it certainly contained information that I didn’t expect, and some I wasn’t aware of. I found myself reading about the methodologies scientists use to determine the age of fossils, especially of trees, and how they are also not 100% accurate. Divided by only 9 chapters, this book gets straight to the point without wasting any pages. The author employed easy-to-understand language to convey his message, and even when he had to use deep physics’ terms, he made sure that they were coherent and understandable, so readers don’t feel like they are reading a textbook.

This book impacted me so much so that I am now willing to read more about agnosticism, atheism, and Christianity. But still, one thing that it proved to me is that we all can’t know for sure whether God exists or not. All reliable sources that the author used also had their flaws. It is now the matter of which one do you prefer to side with. Is it the religion or the science's reasoning, even though they both have loopholes in their theories?

One thing that surprised me is that the author didn’t talk about Satan. He just talked about sinning, about how it is totally our sinning as human beings that is destroying the world and disappointing God. Raising this question again, is it automatically in us to sin, or sinning is just something that is influenced to us by Satan? I wish he could have touched on this, maybe he would have convinced me more.

I rate God, Science and the Bible 3 out of 4 stars. I knock the other star off, not because the book failed to change my agnosticism, but simply because I came across many punctuation errors and two typographical errors. It was a good read, but a plethora of missing commas made me so uneasy to the point that I got irritated. Nonetheless, I strongly recommend this book to people like me, who are agnostic, and also to atheists because I believe that the points raised in this book are important as they are so challenging that after reading them, you won’t be the same as before.

God, Science and the Bible is an excellent book that dissects scientific principles, such as Newton’s Laws of Physics, The Big Bang theory, radiocarbon dating, evolution and demonstrates how they provide credence to the existence of God. Arnold V Page writes with biblical and scientific expertise in his analyses of how science and the Bible work together to support the evidence of design as a supernatural phenomenon. The aspiration of the author is not to create a debate about the existence of God but lay a foundation supporting God through science and why it is important to believe in God.

The existence of God and whether to believe or not to believe in God, Jesus, and heaven are all topics that have been discussed from the beginning of time. They have laid the foundation of countries and wars. Arnold V Page takes a scientific approach to proving God’s existence and hopes to answer questions for inquiring minds. This book covers a multitude of scientific and biblical topics with supporting data and sources in an easily understood format. Various topics are discussed from fossils found in sedimentary layers, tar pits, orbiting moons, how the earth spins, the resurrection of Jesus, and the biblical definition of a day. The author does an impressive job of explaining scientific concepts, such as the Laws of Thermodynamics, into comprehensible terminology for the non-science person or for those whose science knowledge is limited or rusty.

If you do not like science or discussions regarding faith in God, this book is not for you. Each chapter reviews a different topic supporting God in conjunction with applicable scientific terms or theories. Though easy to understand and aptly defined with addition resources referenced, the science presence is heavy. The book is designed to answer questions that current science pits against The Creation Theory. If you do not agree with the existence of God or the literal definition of the Creation Theory being completed in six days, you will need an open mind to complete this book.

This book garners a 4 out of 4-star rating. It was fascinating and engaging, easy to understand, and unique in its approach to proving the existence of God. I found a few instances regarding the omission of a comma, but the editing and grammar were superb.

This is a book for anyone between the ages of 10-110 that wants to create great conversation about the validity of science supporting God. A reading plan for the bible is referenced in the appendix. I plan to read more by this author.
