From the back cover: Is God just watching from a distance? Or is He intimately involved in every detal of His creation--including your life?

The Psalmist exclaimed, "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands" (Psa 19:1). Dr. Richard Swenson asserts that, in fact, all of nature reveals a God who constantly nurtures and sustains His creation--including our own bodies--in ways that we can scarcely comprehend.

Drawing on his background in medicine and the natural sciences, Dr. Swenson examines the wonders of creation and explains how they reveal a majestic God whose mastery of detail is evident everywhere, from the breathtaking complexity of living cells to the awesome grandeur of the cosmos. He shows us a God whose genius, power, sophistication, and artistry shout from every element of our universe. With evidence from both science and Scripture, Swenson helps us see ourselves as God sees us--treasured creations with whom He desires initmate relationship.

Our Comments: This book will take you to the smallest known reaches of science and in the process expand your horizons exponentially. Don't be fooled into thinking scientists know everything there is to know for the deeper they dig, the less the established laws of science apply. There are dimensions where the concept of Jesus being here, there and everywhere become relevant and what we consider possible and impossible is thrown on its ear. Properly applied, the study of physics is a gateway to the realm of the Divine and this is the book to start you on your journey.
