Natural Questions

God's Planet by Owen Gingerich

Harvard University Press, 2014
(170 pages, $19.95, hardcover)

Rare are the books that combine brevity with clarity, and delight with instruction. This is one. It is also nicely produced and agreeable to hold and read: a pleasure, therefore, to review. The author, Owen Gingerich, is emeritus professor of astronomy and history of science at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.

"Here we do not concede one square millimeter of territory to falsehood, folly, contemporary sentimentality, or fashion. We speak the truth, and let God be our judge. . . . Touchstone is the one committedly Christian conservative journal."
