Consider the Lilies: A Plea for Creational Theology
Has a beautiful sunset ever filled you with awe? Sometimes God’s handiwork surprises us, flaming out for an instant before receding into what we normally regard as commonplace. Sometimes it seems to ooze around us with strength and power and an unmistakable sense of divine presence. Other times we are too occupied with the affairs of the world to notice the glory shimmering and beckoning around us. We surround ourselves with things rather than a firsthand experience of God revealing himself in what he has made.
T.M. Moore calls us to examine the biblical doctrine of general revelation from the perspective of what he calls creational theology. As we see the revelation of God in creation, culture, and the conscience, we discover a deeper, richer, more wonder-filled and continuous relationship with him. We can train our eyes to see, our ears to hear, our minds to discern, and our hearts to delight in God’s capacious reservoir of glory and grandeur. And as our experience of God in creation reinforces his revelation of himself in his Word, we will see our reading and studying of Scripture come to greater brilliance and intensity.
In this artful introduction to creational theology, Moore helps us develop the skills and disciplines for doing theology as we look upon and interact with the world around us.
