“How great are your works, O Lord! You have made all things in wisdom” (Ps. 104:24)

Nowhere else, in this world does God’s wisdom and omnipotence manifest so obviously
as in creation! “Oh Lord, I heard your voice and was afraid!” (Habakkuk 3:2).

Watching, O Lord, Your works, it was as if You were talking to me. And I was afraid…!
We can’t articulate the miracle of creation. What we can do, is just to touch upon it.
And this is what we try to do in the present book.
