In the Beginning emphasizes the stunning variety of the created order. It takes the order of Genesis, chapter 1, for its structure, but is fleshed out with the miracle of creation, and with god's pleasure in all God has made.Beautiful color illustrations take the reader from the beginning of the word through the making of the first people. With each page unfolds the wonder of God's creation, brought to life by artist Susan Wintringham's innovative artwork, using an original technique. Especially for children ages 7-9.
