The Natural History of Creation is the third and final installment in M.A. Corey's natural theology series. This remarkable trilogy—the first of its kind in this century—has worked in tandem with the findings of modern science to help spearhead the rebirth of the natural theology movement around the world. Nowhere will the reader find a more thorough description of the many breathtaking parallels between our modern scientific picture of the creation of the universe and the poetic description of the creation in Genesis One.
