Follow the link to view a sermon delivered by Pastor John Ortberg of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church in Menlo Park, CA.

In this sermon, Pastor Ortberg sheds new light on the meaning of Genesis 1 by bringing his 21st century listeners back into the text’s ancient cultural context. Through this, we can have a greater appreciation for God’s message of his sovereignty and care over all of his creation. The work of Old Testament scholar John Walton is also referenced.

By providing books, online resources, and digital media of high quality, BioLogos is an invaluable resource in my work with both Christian students and those investigating Christianity. In BioLogos, students see modeled before them a Psalm 19 way of thinking: that both God’s world and his word declare his glory.
