Two great books for one low price!
 
The Work of His Hands
During his six months aboard the International Space Station in 2006, Colonel Jeffrey N. Williams orbited the earth more than 2,800 times and took more photographs of earth than any astronaut in history. Every shot contains lessons about God's creation. Every view from the window of the Space Station contains countless vivid lessons about the meticulous goodness of divine providence, God’s care for His creation, and His wisdom in ordering the universe. Colonel Williams has had the rare privilege of studying earth from heaven’s perspective.
 
Colonel Jeffrey N. Williams grew up on a farm in a rural community in Wisconsin. He graduated from the United States Military Academy (USMA) at West Point in 1980 and served more than 27 years in the U.S. Army. Williams holds a bachelor’s degree from USMA, master’s and aerospace engineering degrees from the Naval Postgraduate School, and a master’s degree from the Naval War College.
 
In the Beginning, God - Creation From God's Perspective
Dr. Heck presents a theological defense of young earth creationism through a straightforward reading of the first chapter of Genesis as narrative history. This book works well for topic study on creation and for Old Testament studies on the text of Genesis. Much has been written on the creation from the scientific view, but little has attempted to explain the text of Genesis 1. A failure to read Genesis 1 as narrative history almost always comes as a result of the reader bringing presuppositions on the assured results of science.  The first chapter of Genesis must be taken as historical fact!
 
This booklet sets forth the position of the Bible on the message of Genesis 1, particularly as it has to do with the creation/evolution debate. Someone once described himself as having been “liberated from literalism.” Presumably, he was referring negatively to the position that takes Genesis 1 literally, that is, as a statement of historical narrative. As a result of being liberated from literalism, he was enslaved to a falsehood. The issue for a proper understanding of Genesis 1 is not a literal versus a figurative interpretation; it is a question of the intended message of the text. There is nothing wrong with taking literally a passage that is intended to be taken literally, that is, according to the letters. Most of the time, to take a passage literally is to take it seriously.
-From the Introduction-
 
Dr. Joel D. Heck is Professor of Theology at Concordia University Texas. He holds a ThM in Old Testament from Trinity Evangelical Divinity and a ThD in Exegetical Theology from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis.
