Cover of the book is all I see accidently thought it was purpose driven life, sorry for any inconvenience. Please let me know those who've read this Novel by Jonathan R Wilson "GOD'S GOOD WORLD." Still betting on five stars approved.

Wilson provides a well-balanced discussion of God, humanity and creation. One of the important contributions of this book is that it seeks to help us understand salvation in relation to our creation. Well-written. Timely. Thought-provoking.

Science and Creation ARE compatible. What many people do not realize is that evolution is also a religion. See the book by Ken Ham called: The Lie: Evolution/Millions of Years.
