Are we really just the result of innumerable coincidences? Or is there a more reasonable explanation?
Earth is the only known planet that sustains complex life. But what most people don’t know is that number and complexity of the astronomical, geological, chemical, and biological features recognized as essential to human existence have expanded explosively within the past decade. In this pioneering book, Hugh Ross helps readers uncover the countless miracles that undergird the exquisitely fine-tuned planet we call home—as if Someone had us in mind all along.
“In Improbable Planet, Ross holds readers’ hands, leading them in a readable yet gently technical format through a compelling layer-upon-layer argument for the distinctiveness of the planet on which we live and of the preparation for inimitable life on Earth. The text is replete with references from primary scientific articles in some of the most well-respected journals, underscoring the highest academic rigor taken in substantiating the factual claims. Only the shamefully flippant could dismiss this book as being a faith-filled presentation rather than the scholarly work it represents.”
