b'The Manifold Beauty of Genesis OneGregg Davidson & Kenneth J. TurnerSee and celebrate the multilayered grandeur conveyed by the first chapter of GenesisT he first chapter of the Bibles first book lays the foundation for all that follows about who God is and what God is like. Our technology-age fascination with the science of origins, however, can blind us to issues of great importance that dont address our culturallyconditionedquestions.Instead,GenesisOneitself suggests the questions and answers that are most significant to human faith and flourishing.Geologist Gregg Davidson and theologian Ken Turner shine a spotlight on Genesis One as theologically rich literature first and foremost, exploring the layers of meaning that showcase various aspects of Gods character:God as artistGod as farmerGod as I AmGod as suzerainGod as presenceGod as redeemerOur very knowledge of God suffers when we fail to appreciate the Bibles ability to convey multilayered truth simultaneously. The Manifold Beauty of Genesis One offers readers the chance to cultivate an openness to Scriptures richness and a deeper faith in the Creator.Gregg Davidson (PhD, University of Arizona) is a professor and chair of the School of Geology and Geological Engineering at the University of Mississippi.
