Purposeful Design: Understanding the Creation by Jay Schabacker

  • ISBN-13: 978-0989619004
    Hardcover $24.95
My thoughts:  Designed and referred to by the author as a “coffee table book," it fits that description well. This is a nicely done book with really good illustrations. The size is not that of a very large “coffee table book” but somewhat smaller. A child can easily pick it up and leaf through it.

While written on a level of basic Biblical and scientific knowledge, it still would benefit the youngsters in the home or classroom from having it read aloud and discussed with them to facilitate their grasp of content. Older children would benefit from their own perusal and study of the contents.

Not meant to be a textbook, it covers the seven days of creation in the broad sense of the word yet is done with some good facts and insight. The moon’s rotation and the tides of the earth were nicely done and I found these pages interesting. 

I see this book as an asset to the home (library shelf or coffee table) for adults, teens, and children to enjoy and educate themselves with on how God, our Purposeful Creator, designed each and every aspect of earth.  And all of this purposeful design benefits God’s greatest creation – Man.

My husband thoroughly enjoyed perusing this book.

Author:  Jay Schabacker, once an engineer on the Apollo Moon Program, and founder of a financial investment firm, is a graduate of Cornell University, with a Masters Degree in Finance & Investments from George Washington University. He now devotes his time to educating children and adults on God's wonderful and purposeful design of this world - and each of us. His passion includes videos, speaking engagements, and now the new coffee table book, "Purposeful Design - Understanding the Creation". Jay's activities over the years have included the chairmanship of Romanian Christian Enterprises helping to bring at risk orphan children out of distress; and the chairmanship of Ken Ham's 1992 "Back to Genesis" Washington, DC Seminar sponsored by the Institute for Creation Research.
