Fretheim presents here the Old Testament view of the Creator God, the created world, and our role in creation.  Beginning with "The Beginning," he demonstrates that creation is open-ended and connected.  Then, from every part of the Old Testament, Fretheim explores the fullness and richness of Israel's thought regarding creation: from the dynamic created order to human sin, from judgment and environmental devastation to salvation, redemption, and a new creation.
