Guest Blog with Elizabeth Goddard Day Two

In Exposing Amber, both the museum director, Brandon Selman, and the college intern, Amber McKinsey, are Christians. Yet, they have both chosen fields which aren’t Christian-friendly. By that I mean, most modern science’s anchors its foundation on evolution and God is excluded completely. To see what I mean, watch Ben Stein’s Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.

Especially read John Olson’s novel, Fossil Hunter.

In my story, both characters love the science of God’s creation. Brandon, or Dr. Selman as Amber refers to him, became a Christian at some point in his career as both a paleontologist and museum director. So how does he merge his new found love for Christ and the science he’s in deep with, which doesn’t allow for intelligent design? Dr. Selman finds a way and it surprised me because I didn’t know how he was going to do it. I hadn’t thought of it until the actual writing. But that’s often how stories work. You’ll have to read the book if you want to know!

He also finds a way to help a young college intern resolve her past and discover her future. Amber stirs the passion for discovery that Brandon thought he’d lost.

I hope you enjoy this exploration into science and the hearts of two Christian paleontologists!

Question of the Day: Jurassic Park...Did you see it? Did you like it?


  1. Of course I've seen all three Jurassic parks and while it's fun to watch the dinosaurs in action,I'm not a big fan of watching people getting eaten. LOL. So the answer to that question depends on the day you ask me. Today, I don't much like Jurassic Park. Ha!

  2. I have seen all three, but the first one is my favorite...if I have one. Like you, Beth, I'm not a big fan of the eating people thing, but I was very intrigued with, especially after reading the book (Which is WAY better than the movie) Crighton made it all seem so wonderfully possible.

  3. I've seen all three and read the book. I loved the first movie, thought the second was okay, and felt the third was better than the second but not the first :) The book was great, too.
