This retelling of the story of Creation will bring both children and adults a new experience of the exhilaration of the Creation and the Creator as a work of art and great artist.
Both the text and the illustrations of this joyful new picture book are breathtaking and poetic, as they open our eyes to the beauty and wonder of God's creative action in creating the world. We've heard the story so many times that we need to be newly awakened to the amazing events of the Bible. This book does just that, for children as well as adults, by retelling the story of Creation. And it's no dumbed-down children's version. Just listen to this selection:
"What God did was see something in his imagination, and speak it, and it became real. God flung both arms wide and embraced deep space, then bend and squeezed it, twisting it and pulling it like dough, then flinging it wide in great spirals of energy. It surged out hugely, flashing, exploding into the dark with a thunderous blast - universes, galaxies, nebulae. It was so hot God had to blow on it to cool it as it spun away."
This book is one that brings so much freshness to the understanding of God's awesome power and joy that I highly recommend it to you.
