If you are preparing to preach or teach on the always fascinating subject of creation, or if you want simply to study the Bible’s teaching on the subject on your own, you’ll find Kaiser and Little to be helpful guides. In a succession of chapters they provide faithful and edifying expositions of key passages in Scripture that address the glories of creation:  Genesis 1:1 2:3, 2:4 25; Psalms 8 and 19, 29, 33, 104, 148; Job 38, Isaiah 65 and 66; Proverbs 8, and various New Testament passages as well. The excellent volume explores important parallels between the old creation and the new (i.e., redemption). Questions of biblical exposition, systematic theology, and biblical theology are helpfully addressed. The study includes study questions and discussion starters, providing for fruitful use in group Bible studies. A unique, helpful resource that pastors and teachers will not want to be without.
