"Born With a Bang tells the story of the creation of the universe with bouncy language and magical, stunning conceptual art ... I took it to the home of a friend, an amateur astronomer with three telescopes, and his 4-year-old daughter ... She loved the story, and wanted to look at the pictures as we read to her. With its entrancing illustrations, this book is nearly edible; indeed, the 4-year-old suggested copying an illustration or two and eating it."

Coupled with stuff like "Now, my dear earthling, make yourself comfortable and let's begin at the very beginning ..." didn't do anything at all for my optimism. And then the pages headed "Discoveries by Earthling scientists" enhanced my gloom.
So it came as no surprise to me to find that the author is "an adjunct staff member at Genesis Farm, teaching the Sacred Universe Story.".
And a review on the back cover says "Our Universe is the great Being expressing itself in many forms. Some call this Being God; others call it something else. Whatever the name, this story shows that the Universe is profoundly alive."
So if you're looking for a book that lets you know that the Big Bang was just the start of a process that enabled humanity to exist because chemicals happened to come together and respond to the environment, I doubt that you'll get much support from this book.
Try "Older Than The Stars", but see my review for that and make your own decision.
