This is not a review. Sorry. I just decided to address those of you who know me and would wonder why I would read this book in the first place.

Most Christians believe God has given us two "books" to learn more about who He is: the Bible (the Inspired Written Word) and the Book of Creation (not only "inspired," but actually spoken into existence by his very voice.
