Overview

This book explores the constant of natural existence, the principle that governs the perennial emergence of the world from the formation of stars to the movement of continents, from the sprout of a seed to the ripening of fruit, from the birth of a person to the death of a culture. As understood in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, this principle is “creation” in the sense that everything in the universe comes into existence through the creative command of God.
