208 pages
Lexham Press

The Christian life is grounded in God’s act of creation.

  • How we pray
  • How we relate to others
  • How we worship
  • How we rest

In Ordinary Splendor: Living in God’s Creation, Lydia Jaeger presents the doctrine of creation in all its practical necessity. She unfolds the majesty of God’s creative work and explores how it shapes and informs everything—from our relationships and the way we pray to how we think about human dignity. 

Through her engagement with theologians, Greek mythology, philosophers, and other creation stories from the ancient Near East, Jaeger offers a rich reading of biblical creation passages that provides wisdom for our daily lives.
