Dr. Brown interviews Hugh Ross, whose search for truth led him to faith in God, and in his continuing pursuit of truth, sees the magnificence of the Creator unveiled through science. In the second hour, Dr. Brown sheds light on some common misunderstandings/mistranslations of the Bible.
Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: The heavens really do declare the glory of God. The universe really does speak of a glorious, extraordinary Creator who cares for us, and created a vast universe so there could be a planet called Earth, where there could be a people that know Him, live with Him, be with Him, and love Him. What an awesome God!
Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: Jesus said, “Continue in My word and you will be My disciples indeed. You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” Truth has been given plainly for all open hearts and open eyes. Let us dive into the truth of God’s word and be transformed, so we can change the world!
HUGH ROSS launched his career at age seven when he went to the library to find out why stars are hot. Physics and astronomy captured his curiosity and never let go. At age seventeen he became the youngest person ever to serve as director of observations for Vancouver’s Royal Astronomical Society. With the help of a provincial scholarship and a National Research Council of Canada fellowship, he completed his undergraduate degree in physics at theUniversity of British Columbia and graduate degrees in astronomy at the University of Toronto. The NRC also sent him to the United States for postdoctoral studies. At Caltech he researched quasi-stellar objects, or “quasars,” some of the most distant and ancient objects in the universe.
Not all of Hugh’s discoveries involved astrophysics. Prompted by curiosity, he studied the world’s religions and “holy books” and found only one book that proved scientifically and historically accurate: the Bible. Hugh started at religious “ground zero” and through scientific and historical reality-testing became convinced that the Bible is truly the Word of God! When he went on to describe for others his journey to faith in Jesus Christ, he was surprised to discover how many people believed or disbelieved without checking evidence.
Hugh’s unshakable confidence that God’s revelations in Scripture and nature do not, will not, and cannot contradict became his unique message. In this realm, he has written many books, including: The Fingerprint of God, The Creator and the Cosmos, Beyond the Cosmos, The Genesis Question, A Matter of Days, Creation As Science, Why the Universe Is the Way It Is, and More Than a Theory.
Only Genesis with John C. Rankin [MP3 CD]: The foundations for life and living are found in the book of Genesis, including the power to give, the power to live in the light, the power of informed choice, the power to love hard questions, the power to love enemies and the power to forgive. This class will outline the ten positive assumptions of Genesis, which follow the biblical order of creation: God’s nature, communication, human nature, human freedom, hard questions, human sexuality, science and the scientific method, verifiable history, covenantal law and unalienable rights.
