Living in a created world

The Christian life is grounded in God’s act of creation—so an awareness of God’s purposes in creation is deeply practical for all believers, not just those who are involved in debates over faith and science. In Ordinary Splendor: Living in God’s Creation, Lydia Jaeger presents the doctrine of creation in all its practical necessity. She unfolds the majesty of God’s creative work and explores how it shapes and informs everything—from our relationships and the way we pray to how we think about human dignity.

Through her engagement with theologians, Greek mythology, philosophers, and other creation stories from the ancient Near East, Jaeger offers a rich reading of biblical creation passages that provides wisdom for our daily lives.
