More than Meets the Eye: Fascinating Glimpses of God's Power and Designby Richard Swenson
Synopses & Reviews
Is God just watching from a distance? Or is He intimately involved in every detail of His creation-including your life? The psalmist exclaimed, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands” (Ps. 19:1). Dr. Richard Swenson asserts that, in fact, all of nature reveals a God who constantly nurtures and sustains His creation-including our own bodies-in ways that we can scarcely comprehend. Drawing on his background in medicine and the natural sciences, Dr. Swenson examines the wonders of creation and explains how they reveal a majestic God whose mastery of detail is evident everywhere, from the breathtaking complexity of living cells to the awesome grandeur of the cosmos. He shows us a God whose genius, power, sophistication, and artistry shout from every element of our universe. With evidence from both science and Scripture, Swenson helps us see ourselves as God sees us-treasured creations with whom He desires intimate relationship.
The author, a doctor, probes creation for evidence of God's design in the world and finds it in the details of our biological makeup and the natural world. Original.
