Book Tour: "The Broken Gift," by Daniel Friedmann

Susan Heim on Parenting is pleased to be a stop on the book tour for The Broken Gift, by Daniel Friedmann! In the following article, he shares more information about his new book, and how it's important to talk about the origins of life with our children.

Have your children ever asked you the question, “How did we get here?” Your children are confused and, at times, so are you. What is going on? Kids are taught evolution in school and creationism in Sunday school -- with both authorities claiming to be right.

I could not make much progress in clarifying the topic to their satisfaction, despite my strong scientific background, having been trained as a physics engineer, working in space-related areas for 30 years, and my religious knowledge on the topic acquired over more than a decade of studies. So I worked through these issues when I wrote my two books, The Genesis One Code and The Broken Gift.

My new book deals with this topic head-on, in a new way. Both science and religion claim to know what happened and when -- one or both must be right. The Broken Gift focuses on hard evidence of what happened and when. Once that account is reconciled, it discusses how it happened, which for science and religion is somewhat different.

In The Broken Gift, you’ll discover what Adam and Eve were really like, who was the first man, and what he looked like. Did Noah, Noah’s ark and the flood really happen? This, and more puzzling mysteries are explored.

“Perhaps every reader will judge the contents of this book based on personal history and beliefs, and that seems to be all that Friedmann is asking of us -- to stop the battle between those who say the Bible is completely factual and true and must be taken on faith without engaging reason and those who debunk anything Biblical as fairytales for the weak of mind as contradictory to newfound and daily investigated scientific facts about ‘how we began.’ Friedmann marries the two concepts in an admirably thoughtful way, and for all his research and his personal commitment to bring some mutual agreement to both sides of this debate he deserves at the very least a reading of his books. AND there is something for everyone, no matter the side of belief, to learn from reading this book.”
~Grady Harp, Amazon Top Reviewer

So, how did we get here? You and your family can spend hours of quality time having a discussion about science, religion, and the meaning and purpose of life. Either way, your kids will be fascinated!
