Quote from John Walton

I am currently reading (for review) John H. Walton’s The Lost World of Genesis One: Ancient Cosmology and the Origins Debate, and I must say that I have enjoyed it immensely thus far. While I plan to post a review of it in the next week or so, I wanted to share a quote I found particularly well-said.

“So on day one God created the basis for time; day two the basis for weather; and day three the basis for food. These three great functions–time, weather, and food–are the foundation of life. If we desire to see the greatest work of the Creator, it is not to be found in the materials that he brought together–it is that he brought them together in such a way that they work. Perhaps we can feel the same wonder when we consider how, even given all that we know about the physiology of the eye, that beyond all of our material understanding, through these bundles of tissue we can see. We should never lose the wonder of this. Functions are far more important than materials.” p. 59

Αυτω η δοξα,
