At one time or another, we all ask ourselves about the Genesis account of creation. How we view creation, and how we understand the lessons in Genesis, deeply affects how we view our lives and our faith. Through original poems, artwork, and photography, In Seven Days?, by author and artist Roslyn Gatts Alexander, presents a fresh, positive outlook on God's creation of the universe and offers new understanding of the Bible account for readers old and new.
Alexander's bold and beautiful illustrations enhance our journey through the first seven days, and her lyrical verse provides a playful, modern retelling of the creation story to which we all can relate. Also included are Original Sin, God's plan for our redemption, and a celebration of His light and glory. God desires relationship with us, and by personally seeking Him we return his admiration and walk in his everlasting love.
