In the Beginning: A Look at our World Through the Lens of Environmental Science and Christian Theology is a book that presents creation myths from ancient cultures around the world. It then examines the first creation story in the book of Exodus and goes into detail explaining how the Old Testament was written. Then the book follows the seven-day creation day by day to explain what was created and why. Finally, the authors tackle the issues of climate change and the destruction of the environment we human beings were charged to protect.
The book can be used in small groups or simply read for one’s own edification. The combination of mythological, biblical and scientific information should inspire and challenge all who read it.
