About the Author: Dr. Jason Lisle is a Christian astrophysicist who writes and speaks on various topics relating to science and the defense of the Christian faith. He approaches science from the perspective that God’s Word is true—“the Bible teaches us the truth about origins, and good science confirms what the Bible teaches.” Dr. Lisle graduated summa cum laude from Ohio Wesleyan University, where he double-majored in physics and astronomy and minored in mathematics. He then earned a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in astrophysics at the University of Colorado. He specialized in solar astrophysics and has made a number of scientific discoveries regarding the solar photosphere, including the detection of giant cell boundaries using the SOHO spacecraft. He also does theoretical research and has contributed to the field of general relativity. He is currently the Director of Research for the Institute for Creation Research where he leadd ICR’s gifted team of scientists who continue to investigate and demonstrate the evidence for creation. His personal research efforts will focus on astrophysics, and developing models of cosmology and stellar aging.
Creation Astronomy explains stellar phenomena and the contents of the Universe (from the level of elementary particles to the largest superclusters of galaxies) using the presupposition that the cosmos was created by God.
