Creation & the Liberating Glory

About this Book

Without a true knowledge of creation we are adrift in the universe. True knowledge of creation helps us to be at home with God and His creation. Somehow living in creation is a thrilling experience: it becomes our life. God, Man, the creatures, the green forests, the mighty mountains. the dry deserts, the rolling plains, the savannah, the seas and the rivers and the lagoons are seen to be as one in a conspiracy of joy, peace and adventure. Even the hazards—which are many—keep us vitally alert. White water and black nights keep us on our toes, tingling. The battle for the creation goes on between the Creator—Redeemer and the dark Enemy who will be defeated by a new heaven and a new earth—the New Creation. Creation is not `running down' but `running up '! We need to `read all about it' in this perceptive book.

The Writer—Geoffrey Bingham (1919-2009)—was a creation man since his toddler days. His many writings tell us that. So does his theology which is alive and vibrant with understanding not only of this present creation but the new one to come. He shares much of his experiences of God, Man and creation in a long life lived in many places. He holds out the promise of love, joy and peace from the Creator who deals with making us personally, but these come in the rough and tumble of the battle, a battle which he knows as we also must know.
