About the Book
This book beautifully illustrates the principles of science that operate our world. It explains the elements of designs that make life possible, and compellingly presents evidence of a loving Creator God. Within the framework of the seven days of creation, it explains such concepts as the rain cycle, the importance of vegetation, and the ocean tides. Bible verses are interwoven throughout the book reminding us of God’s hand in creation.
Who Made the Cookies?
“Purposeful Design” may be a new phrase to you.
The words, “Intelligent Design” may be more familiar. The phrase, “Intelligent Design” was coined in the year 1993. At that time, a group of five scientists and professors met on the California coast to discuss the possibility that material and living things might have been painstakingly planned and brought about, not by accident, but by design.
But, I feel “Intelligent Design” doesn’t go far enough to explain or describe the awesome benevolent “touch” worked by what I call the “Purposeful Designer” – our Maker – God.
Yes, there is the scientific – and even the “miraculous”, but I’d like to invoke the “personal”, “human touch” to the creation account for you.
It was done for you and me – lovingly and personally!
As the simplest of examples, take the recipe for making cookies and the results. Intelligence was needed. A recipe, with ingredients, and forethought – but also – the “human touch” – yes, – that of the “maker”!
Let’s envision a plate of freshly baked cookies – lovingly created – steaming hot – just starting to cool – on the kitchen counter. And, you cry out, “Who made the cookies?”
Not an abstract accident or occurrence, but someone who loved you very much made them specifically for you – because he or she knew you would love them.
That is the meaning of God’s “Purposeful Design” – just for you and me.
