In The Beginning

As science and the scientific method

dominate public opinion, the minority with a different worldview are often

treated with contempt. Seventh-day Adventists, former Adventists and many

others with Evangelical roots have shifted their attitudes toward the biblical

teaching on a literal six-day Creation.

Theistic evolution is accepted as they bow to the perceived weight of

scientific evidence against the literal, biblical 6-day Creation.



In The Beginning provides a sound, intelligent, reasoned basis for continuing belief in the creatorship of God. Especially in the light of its end-time proclamation it is important for the Adventist church to speak with one voice on origins.

In The

Beginning's
credibility lies in no small way in

the scholarship, reputations and integrity of the book's contributors. This

book is an important contribution to the creation/evolution debate and to the

defense of the biblical view of origins.

Last Child in the Woods

In this influential work about the

staggering divide between children and the outdoors, child advocacy expert,

Richard Louv, directly links the lack of nature in the lives of today's

generation—he calls it nature-deficit—to some of the most disturbing childhood

trends, such as the rise in obesity, attention disorders, and depression.



Louv offers practical solutions and simple ways to heal the broken bond—many in our own backyard.

Last Child

in the Woods
is the first book to bring together

a new body of research indicating that direct exposure to nature is essential

for healthy childhood development and for the physical and emotional health of

children and adults. Louv offers practical solutions and simple ways to heal

the broken bond—many in our own backyard.



This new edition

reflects the enormous changes that have taken place since the book was

originally published. It includes: 100 actions you can take to create change in

your community, school, and family; 35 discussion points to inspire people of

all ages to talk about the importance of nature in their lives and a new

progress report by the author about the growing Leave No Child Inside movement.



Last Child

in the Woods
has spurred a dialogue among

educators, health professionals, parents, developers and conservationists, and

it will change the way you think about the future and your children.

The Creation Project

Elder Ted N. C. Wilson, President of

the Seventh-day Adventist Church, says, "I am delighted to introduce The Creation Project, a wonderful program and powerful tool for evangelistic

outreach.... Many people have already been blessed through The Creation Project and we hope that this project will be a blessing of the

evangelistic outreach for every church around the world where possible....The

program can be adapted as needed for various localities....[it] is a tremendous

tool that fits well with our “Tell the World” initiative and presents a

powerful opportunity for “Mission to the Cities.”"



Advenitist scientists, filmmakers, artists and theologians worked together over several years to assemble this unique resource.

The

Creation Project
is part of a worldwide Seventh-day

Adventist Church initiative striving to place our belief in the Biblical

account of creation in the spotlight. We believe God set apart the seventh-day

Sabbath as a permanent and constant reminder of His creative power. Therefore, we cannot adequately share

our faith without emphasizing a literal account of creation.



Advenitist

scientists, filmmakers, artists and theologians worked together over several

years to assemble this unique resource.

We believe The Creation Project underscores the vital role creation plays in our faith and we

pray that this exhibit will bring a blessing to your ministry and reinvigorate your

outreach efforts.



Components of The Creation Project include a scientific lecture; the movie, materials for a creation

expo; a children’s program and the follow up program.
