Drs. Kaiser and Little have done a big service to the evangelical community in setting forth a broad, biblical, and engaging presentation of the doctrine of creation. Their Biblical Portraits on Creation provides a refreshing picture covering important, but often neglected, biblical texts. Further, it contains some of the best material available on the historicity of the Genesis account of creation as opposed to contemporary critical and evolutionary denials. In addition, it captures the grandeur and majesty of the biblical text without stalling in the contemporary debate over the time of creation. It roots are deeply embedded in good biblical exposition and blossom in fruitful and bountiful portrayal of the most basic of all acts of our omnipotent God - the creation of the heavens and the earth!

Christians of all confessions refer to the God of the Bible as the maker of heaven and earth. This book explores the dynamic doctrine of creation from Genesis through the Psalms and Prophets to Jesus himself. Combining scholarly depth and pastoral wisdom, Kaiser and Little have given us here a beautiful call to praise - a hallelujah book!

The doctrine of creation holds crucial importance in the Christian theology of redemption. Kaiser and Little illustrate this point as they survey creation texts throughout the Historical, Wisdom, and Prophetic books of the Old Testament as well as in the Gospels and Epistles of the New Testament. Their integration of the creation message throughout the Bible's sixty-six books holds the key to resolving divisive contention over this topic among Christians. What's more, it brings renewed excitement to integrative study of the whole Word of God. I heartily recommend this book to all Christians. Its contents, notes, and study questions make it an excellent resource for pastors, teachers, and Bible study leaders.

The sermons published in this important book will help Christians read key biblical passages with fresh eyes, think more biblically about creation, and appreciate with renewed gratefulness the wonder of the world.
