This book is about a new and different perspective on "what is creation?" The topic is fascinating and I enjoyed learning a new perspective. The book is written by a professor who assumes the reader has knowledge and a good understanding of various creation theories. The text is pretty complex, heady, dense, and intellectual. It might be good to have a dictionary handy. I certainly would recommend this book to anyone who wants to consider a new angle on creation (and is open to considering something different). But be ready to engage in an intellectual exercise.
