God Made Space
Steph Bryant, Lizzie Henderson, Steph Marshall
God has given us lots of clues about how He made animals. This is how we think He did it. Discover how all living things have their own special pattern hidden inside them. Follow the amazing processes of how our world became filled with wonderful creatures.
The ‘God Made’ series encourages young children to explore and discover more about the world around them, and tells them about the loving God who made it all. Scientific ideas about how everything came to be are simply explained through the lively narrative and amazing illustrations, leaving children full of wonder at God’s creativity, love, and power. With input from The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion, and fun experiments for curious young scientists to try, this series is an ideal way to help children engage with and celebrate God and His universe.

Mainstream science and theology, put delightfully simply. Ideal for young questioners with curious minds!
Dr Althea Wilkinson, Astronomist
Early Years teachers can look forward to meeting the wonderful Faraday Kids Science and Religion series. Two of them — God Made the World and, in a separate volume, God made Space — show that long gone, thankfully, are the days when Christian educators desperately tried to fit science into a pre-determined biblical framework.
Sure, there is an assumption that God was behind it all, but the science in these texts is rigorous and up to date. “This is how we think [God] did it” is the approach. Some precocious bright spark will undoubtedly ask whether it could have occurred anyway, without the God dimension. But you get the feeling from these sparky books that the authors would be glad to have such a question put to them. The books are great fun, beautifully produced, and excellent value.
