Song of Creation


  This is such a beautiful book. It's filled with paintings from Carl Brenders with poems and quotes from an array of writers and poets. These paintings are so exquisite and lifelike and the poems and quotes are all tributes to our Creator. Here are a few.
"We are beginning to regain a
knowledge of creation, a knowledge 
forfeited by the fall of Adam. 
By God's mercy we can begin 
to recognize His wonderful works 
and wonders also in flowers when
we ponder his might and goodness.
Therefore we laud, magnify and thank him."

Martin Luther                   (1483-1546)
 


               Design
"This is a piece too fair
To be the child of Chance, and not of Care.
No Atoms casually together hurl'd
Could e'er produce so beautiful a world."
 
 John Dryden                           (1631-1700)  

    
"Some people, in order to discover God, 
read books. but there is a great book: the very
appearance of created things. Look above you! 
Look below you! Note it. Read it. God, whom 
you want to discover, never wrote that book
with ink. Instead He set before your eyes the 
things that He had made. Can you ask for a
louder voice than that?"

                                         Augustine (354-430)
