Summary:
"Norman Wizba argues that the doctrine of creation - as presented in the Bible and as developed throught the centuries - holds the key to a true understanding of our place in the world. ...Drawing on the work of biblical scholars, ecologists, agrarians, philosophers, theologians, and cultural critics, Wirzba develops a comprehensive worldview that grows out of the idea that the world is God's creation."--Back Cover.
