How should Christians tell others about their faith in biblical Creation? Tim Standish shares resources from experts in the field on this month’s Geoscience feature.
It’s hard to know where to start discussing God in the creation. Yet the bible tells us in Revelation fourteen, six and seven that the everlasting gospel calls ALL people to worship the creator God. How can Christians share something so amazing that we can’t fully understand it ourselves? Well this is a challenge, there are excellent resources available for those seeking to share an informed perspective about the creation. This book, Understanding Creation addresses twenty commonly asked questions. The authors are all experts in their fields and provide thoughtful understandings of subjects ranging from, “What does the fossil record tell us?” To “How do dinosaurs fit in a biblical perspective?” Another resource is this just released, “Thinking Creation” DVD set. Programs address everything from the Christian roots of science to God and the big bang.
Thinking creation is for teachers wishing to teach from a biblical perspective and lay people seeking an informed discussion of creation with neighbors. The creation is not an irrational belief, it is an informed way of thinking about reality that deserves to be shared with the world in a thoughtful way.
