At some point during our religious journey, we have to ask ourselves the questions: How much do we really know God? Are we spiritually dead or alive? And what phase is our faith in? Beginning with the first chapter of Genesis, Gods mystery is hidden throughout the Bible. This book sets forth the importance of the creation story and describes the significance of each day. In addition, it reveals the secret of the Trinity and the meaning of Revelations Armageddon war, including the seven seals, trumpets, bowls, and the 666. Gods intentions are hidden in the Bible. A certain level of openness to the Bible is required to uncover Gods mystery that is hidden within it. This book was written for those who are on a quest to make a connection with God and to support the readers relationship with Christ. It is meant to be read along with The Holy Bible and not in place of it. The objective of this book is to challenge our preconceptions about biblical truths so that we may be able to discern Gods intent with the Spirit of Truth. This book is a great guide for those who thirst for the Spirit of God. It is a must read for all those seeking the Truth. The deep intentions, within Gods Word, are revealed to those who eagerly search for it. Rev. B. So Jin Church of True Life

The Patristic Understanding of Creation encapsulates what the Church Fathers had to say, in their own words, on the topic of creation. Going back to Roman and Byzantine times, the writings of the Church Fathers are basic to Christian theology and provide a benchmark for how Christians have traditionally understood creation. This understanding of creation, however, faces tremendous challenges in our day, especially in discussions at the intersection of science and religion. Process theology and other efforts to reconceptualize creation have explicitly opposed key elements of the Christian doctrine of creation: creation ex nihilo, the transcendence and immanence of God in creation, “the absolute creatureliness and non-self-sufficiency of the world" (to use a phrase of Fr. Georges Florovsky), the goodness of creation, and the openness of the world to divine action. All of these the Church Fathers not only held but also ably defended. This anthology is therefore not merely of academic or historical interest. In reasserting a theologically sound understanding of creation, this anthology fills a need that is both practical and urgent.
