God's Big Design:
Life as He intended it to be

Vaughan Roberts (IVP, 2005)

Blurb Review


In a world with so much destruction and pain we can often find ourselves asking: was there ever a perfect plan for the world? Was it designed by anyone at all? Was it an accident? And if it was all planned for a reason and purpose, what are those purposes? Vaughan Roberts encourages readers to look at the first chapters of the Bible to understand the plan that God had in mind for humanity right from the start. He examines how God intended us to live in his creation and gives clear indications of how we can do so in the world today, even through the pain and destruction around us. He covers the issues that affect us all: our identity, the earth, sex, marriage and work. This is an indispensable guide to understanding how the Creator wants the world to work. Following hard on the heels of his other two books with the word ‘big' in the title (God's Big Picture and Life's Big Questions), this little book presents yet more of the Bible's big picture to challenge readers to bow the knee to Jesus as Lord and in adoration to change our behaviour and attitudes so as to live in his world the way he always intended.
