Weather and the Bible
If you know an “amateur Einstein” who loves to explore, experiment, or read about science, you know someone who would truly appreciate and benefit from this book!
What is Saint Elmo’s fire? The jet stream? The ozone layer? Where does a storm come from? Does air have weight? In popular, question-and-answer style, 100 common questions about the weather and weather-related topics are answered by Creationist physics professor, Donald DeYoung.
This interesting book includes many Biblical insights with fascinating commentary that is clear, concise, and easy to understand. It is divided into five sections, beginning with weather basics and moving on to questions about future weather and why Christians should be concerned about the environment. Charts and tables illustrate the phases of the moon, the composition of air, wind-chill and comfort index, etc. Includes a glossary to de-mystify any term that may be hard to understand, plus helpful subject and Scripture indexes.
Dr. DeYoung teaches physics and astronomy at Grace College, Winona Lake, Indiana.

“This book is a real treasure. It is packed with fascinating information, scientifically accurate, and completely true to Scripture, yet also easy and enjoyable to read. Weather and the Bible deals with a subject of universal interest in a uniquely refreshing manner, using a question-and-answer format that is difficult to lay down, yet also nice just for browsing.”
Donald DeYoung is a Christian physicist by profession and a Christian gentleman in character. He has already written several books relating science and Scripture… He knows science and can communicate it effectively; the same is true of his facility with the Bible.
He has been a respectged member of the science faculty at Grace College in Indiana for many years, and a former editor of the Creation Research Society Quarterly. In addition, he is an adjunct professor at the Institute for Creation Research Graduate School of Science in San Diego…
I am pleased to write a foreword for this fine new book. I commend it heartily to everyone — young and old alike — as a book both to be enjoyed and from which to learn.
