Editorial Reviews

Kenneth Boa
Our technological culture has made it possible for the majority of people in the Western world to navigate through their lives without realizing how embedded they are in the wondrous and manifold created order of the eternal, unbounded Sovereign of the universe. By surrounding ourselves with steel, plastic, and glass and by developing conveniences that render us impervious to the daily rhythms of light and darkness and the seasonal rhythms of heat and cold, we are losing the ability to revel in the marvels of God’s creation. Christianity is an incarnational faith, and T. M. Moore’s original and insightful book calls us back to the childlike wonder and awe that should characterize every follower of Christ.
Philip Ryken
In sparkling prose, rich with theological and practical insight, T. M. Moore opens our eyes to see the glory of God in the works of his hands. Consider the Lilies promotes deeper enjoyment of creation and higher praise for the Creator.
DAVID NAUGLE
Transforms the routine notion of ‘general revelation’ into the invigorating category of ‘ creational theology,’ and does so with biblical substance, laser-like clarity, and energizing practicality. Moore’s use of the poetry of Hopkins and Cooper, his reflections on Jonathan Edwards as the patron theologian of creational theology, plus the book’s God-centeredness make it a delightful and nourishing feast.
DAVID W. JONES
Presents the tools and skills needed to engage in ‘creational theology’ . . . orthodox, challenging, and refreshing.
MICHAEL A SNYDER
Points the way to a fuller experience of life. Moore gives us practical illustrations and suggestions on having ‘eyes to see’ and ‘ears to hear’ all that God is revealing to us through nature, culture, and conscience.
