A faithful and edifying exposition of key chapters in the Bible that speak of the glories of creation, including Genesis 1:1–2:3, 2:4–25, Psalms 8 & 19, 29, 33, 104, 148, Job 38, Isaiah 65 & 66, Proverbs 8, and selected passages from the New Testament. The volume provides interesting parallels between the old creation and the new (i.e., redemption). The study includes study questions and discussion starters, making ideal for group Bible study, in addition to being an insightful and enriching tool for pastors doing a series of sermons on creation.
