Product Description

"In the works of his hands God is revealing his glory and grandeur," writes T. M. Moore. "So powerful, so undeniable can be the sense of God's self-disclosure, that it is remarkable most people seem to take little notice of these evidences of divine glory."

How can we perceive and experience God's grandeur in creation? What does creation tell us about his plans, purposes, truth, or ways? T. M. Moore answers these and other questions in this artful introduction to creational theology, the discovery and celebration of God's glory through what he has made. Moore helps us develop the skills and disciplines for doing theology as we look upon and interact with the world around us."Our technological culture has made it possible for the majority of people in the Western world to navigate through their lives without realizing how embedded they are in the wondrous and manifold created order of the eternal, unbounded Sovereign of the universe. By surrounding ourselves with steel, plastic, and glass and by developing conveniences that render us impervious to the daily rhythms of light and darkness and the seasonal rhythms of heat and cold, we are losing the ability to revel in the marvels of God's creation. Christianity is an incarnational faith, and T. M. Moore's original and insightful book calls us back to the childlike wonder and awe that should characterize every follower of Christ."
-Kenneth Boa, President, Trinity House Publishers, Atlanta, GA

Editorial Reviews

Our technological culture has made it possible for the majority of people in the Western world to navigate through their lives without realizing how embedded they are in the wondrous and manifold created order of the eternal, unbounded Sovereign of the universe. By surrounding ourselves with steel, plastic, and glass and by developing conveniences that render us impervious to the daily rhythms of light and darkness and the seasonal rhythms of heat and cold, we are losing the ability to revel in the marvels of God’s creation. Christianity is an incarnational faith, and T. M. Moore’s original and insightful book calls us back to the childlike wonder and awe that should characterize every follower of Christ.
In sparkling prose, rich with theological and practical insight, T. M. Moore opens our eyes to see the glory of God in the works of his hands. Consider the Lilies promotes deeper enjoyment of creation and higher praise for the Creator.
Transforms the routine notion of ‘general revelation’ into the invigorating category of ‘ creational theology,’ and does so with biblical substance, laser-like clarity, and energizing practicality. Moore’s use of the poetry of Hopkins and Cooper, his reflections on Jonathan Edwards as the patron theologian of creational theology, plus the book’s God-centeredness make it a delightful and nourishing feast.
Presents the tools and skills needed to engage in ‘creational theology’ . . . orthodox, challenging, and refreshing.
Points the way to a fuller experience of life. Moore gives us practical illustrations and suggestions on having ‘eyes to see’ and ‘ears to hear’ all that God is revealing to us through nature, culture, and conscience.
