Humans have always been intrigued by the celestial objects beyond our world and wondered: What are they? Where did they come from? And what do they say about where we come from?
The Universe: A Journey Through God’s Grand Design takes viewers on a journey through time and space, exploring how some of the greatest discoveries in astronomy were made by scientists of faith seeking to understand the exquisite order of God’s universe.
Host Markus Lloyd (Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis, Made in His Image, and Uncovering the Truth about Dinosaurs) travels to world-class observatories and other locations, guiding viewers through the history of astronomy. From early theories of the solar system to Newton’s laws to the space race, every century yields profound discoveries and new mysteries to explore.
Each episode takes us deeper into space and closer to today, when interplanetary probes reveal astonishing evidence that confirms and leaves us in awe of God’s grace and power.
Episode 1: Ancient Astronomy
Ancients used the motions of the stars to guide them, but how and why the heavens work as they do remained a mystery. Experts reveal how early astronomers like Kepler and Galileo were driven to explore the heavens by a desire to understand the order in God’s universe.
Episode 2: A Golden Age
The Age of Enlightenment ushered in a period of great advances in scientific understanding, led by men of faith like Sir Isaac Newton. This episode explores remarkable discoveries that enabled us to understand distant stars and galaxies—and our place in the universe.
Episode 3: Into the Stars
The work of 19th-century astronomers gave us a better understanding of distant stars, but 20th-century secular thinking led to some faulty and fanciful theories. The arrival of spaceflight ushered in a new era of scientific advancement that would shed light on the age of the universe and accuracy of the Bible.
Episode 4: Pushing Forward
The space race and manned missions gave us a new way to investigate the solar system beyond our own planet. Modern Christian scientists describe how astonishing discoveries from today’s space explorations confirm the Bible and strengthen their faith.

This is a fantastic series on astronomy and the truth of Gods word. I will be using it to talk with my kids about the differences between the interpretation of astronomy from a secular worldview and from a Biblical worldview. I myself was a former atheistic evolutionist that was raised on the Cosmos series put together by Carl Sagan. It is instructive for me now to see how I suppressed the truth in unrighteousness before I came to know Christ as savior (Romans 1:18; Ephesians 2:8-10). My only complaint is that I would like to see more content in the videos. I find myself disappointed when the series ends too early on each disk. I would like to see even more in depth study of the scientific predictions made by creation scientists and further information on astronomical events and objects. Great work ICR. This has blessed my heart and I will use it to bless the lives of my children and my congregation as we seek to understand the whole council of Gods word. I pray you will all continue to stand strong on Genesis and the authority of Gods word. Your labor is not in vain in the Lord. In Christ,
