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.

BioLogos represents a leading voice for integrating "mere Christianity" with mainstream science. Having taught science and faith in congregational and academic settings over the past two decades, I continually look to BioLogos for the most effective ways to engage a biblically-informed, Christ-centered faith with the rigors and discoveries of science, all as a way of appreciating this beautiful creation and an even more glorious Creator.
