For many centuries' humanity questioned the origin of the universe. Some, if not all, relied on the pages of the holy bible with the hope that they might finally find answers while others tested almost every little matter with hypothesis, science and technology to prove how something was created from something.

Faith is the most powerful weapon a great believer of God have because he, for most of his life worshiped his creator’s paradise. From birth, mother & father told him about Adam & Eve and it continued in his youth up to maturity. His religion might taught him something but, is it enough to stop his mind from wondering? On the other hand, science is said to be the master of all things because it can provide exact answers through research, calculation, and experimentation. Non-believers who seek for answers relied their heart into it for they believe that facts are better than myths. Since the beginning of time, these two elements seemed to be in tight controversy and rivalry.

Engineering Physicist, Daniel Friedmann and professional writer, editor, and researcher Dania Sheldon collaborated their genius in The Biblical Clock. The two authors proved that two minds are better than one as they laid scientific facts as well as biblical verses to support both religious and scientific assumption. They divided the book into three parts with the aim to reveal ancient thinking regarding the creation of the universe, contrive recorded history context & patterns, and explain the connection of science & scripture into symbiotic resonance.

The novel encourages people to believe in the creator even for people with the littlest faith. Friedmann and Sheldon intelligently gave accurate and clear answers to the longest running battle between religion and science. Also, they wisely retorted upon the question about the evolution of mankind. At first, I thought this will be a boring read mostly providing bible verses and old sayings found in the bible but, I was impressed as I turned the pages because the authors didn’t forget to justify every assumption in both religion and science. In addition, the texts were obviously well-edited which added up an additional score, because of that I rate the book 4 out of 4 stars.

Anyone could really enjoy the book since it is violent-free, absolutely no nudity nor adult content found, and no vulgar language however, I believe everyone has different reading preferences. So, I recommend the book to those who love non-fiction genre as well as to those who are currently in seek for their souls. The Biblical Clock will surely widen your insight on faith and will take away your confusion.

Friedmann also authored The Genesis One Code and The Broken Gift.

It sounds very interesting. So am I understanding you correctly in that it's a scientific argument for divine creation?

Yes it is.. Both of the authors used scientific data to reason out their arguments. They are really good at it. You should try and read it.

I like the fact that the authors treat religion and science as complementary rather than antagonistic. Many scientists don't, that's why I think I might enjoy this book. Thank you for giving us an overview!
