Lens to the Natural World: Reflections on Dinosaurs, Galaxies, and God

by Kenneth H. Olson

Eugene (OR): Wipf & Stock, 2011. 220 pages.

Reviewer Joel W. Martin writes that Olson’s book draws “on his personal experiences as a dinosaur hunter in the Badlands of the western United States and on his experience as a pastor.” Martin praises Olson’s “genuine sense of wonder and love of nature” and his writing (though he finds it sometimes convoluted and too crammed with quotations); he regrets Olson’s failure to discuss “other books and efforts along the same lines” and to stay up to date on the creationism/evolution controversy."
