Series authors Chris Anderson and Joe Tyrpak are joined this time by co-author Jeff Williams, a devout Christian who also happens to be a NASA astronaut. He has spent 534 days aboard the International Space Station—an American record when he accomplished it. Jeff lives at the edge of discovery. And yet, to the surprise of many, Jeff believes that the Bible is inerrant, and he takes the creation record literally. His contribution to this project makes it a must-read.
Why are we writing on this topic at this time? There are many reasons, and we enumerate several of them in this blog post. First and foremost, however, creation should move us to worship—especially when we consider that the mighty Creator stooped to become our merciful Savior. The topic of creation is a call to worship, not a call to arms. Our goal is that this devotional will move Christians to adoration, not debate. We write, then, from a posture of wonder, not a desire for controversy.
May the Lord use this book to exalt our Creator, encourage Christians, and perhaps even nudge atheists to reconsider their conclusions. Soli Deo Gloria! Grace!
