it was amazing
Read in August, 2010

If I could give this 10 stars, I would.

This book has changed my view of the bible, of God, and of my daily life (especially the Sabbath) all for the better. What's presented here is a view of creation that not only expands and (at the same time) puts a point on God's creation, it's beautiful, humbling, and actually makes sense of many problems I've always seen in the story.

If you're serious about understanding what the story of the bible is really about and you've known all along that the creation/evolution debates are seriously off track, this is a MUST read.

Thanks to Joe Burnham for turning me onto this....
