Berkley, Warren and Paula, Editors. God’s Creatures in God’s Word (Published in 2020 by One Stone Biblical Resources, 979 Lovers Lane, Bowling Green, KY 42103). Eagles, pigs, lions, dogs, deer, sheep, snakes, cattle, and goats—“the Lord God made them all.” The Bible mentions each of these creatures, both in historical references and as symbols of spiritual truth. Throughout the Scriptures, God uses animals, plants, insects, and other things in nature as metaphors, similes, and analogies to help us grasp various points being made and thus give us a better understanding of His will for us. Editors Warren and Paula Berkley have assembled a team of faithful Christians with academic knowledge of these animals to write about them and the imagery that is used about them in God’s word and to show that God clearly intends for us to learn from His Word by using the things we can see and know in His creation.
God’s Creatures in God’s Word is suitable for Bible classes or for personal study. It would also be useful in a homeschool setting either for Bible study or, with all of its scientific information, as an adjunct to a biology class. The proceeds from the sale of this book support Sacred Selections, a non profit 501c3 California corporation with a mission to provide financial means for Christian couples, whose hearts and homes are open to loving and raising an adopted child in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, with assistance for the fees associated with the adoption process.
