   Troubling controversy exists among many as to whether Adam was created as

   This detailed account that considers fossil facts, discusses the “differences between David and Darwin,” and presents a “Scientific Creation Model” (that’s testable is a feast for those who take the Bible seriously and aren’t afraid of 37 pages of endnotes that fall after the conclusion at page 250 (and “A Song of Significance” [Psalm 8]) that ends the book.

   Says Rana:

   “At no other time in human history has the biblical account of humanity’s origin held greater credibility than it does today. Advancing scientific research in months and years to come will provide even more opportunities to test the credibility of biblical models for human origins. Putting the biblical view of humanity’s origin to the test in the form of a scientific creation model affirms [the biblical] David’s claim–man is the crown of God’s creation. And that is a conclusion worth singing about.”
