(Not Quite) Wordless Wednesday: The Lost Theology of Beauty

"I believe the key element in our recovering the lost theology of beauty- a loss that is evident in our often insensitive and utilitarian approach to the natural world, is to recognize that the beauty of the created world is evidence of the Creator himself. It's a significant that in the Genesis creation account the first fact mentioned about the trees of the garden was that they were 'pleasing to the eye'.  Yes, they were 'good for food,' but apparently what was most striking to the new dwellers of Eden was their beauty." (Excerpt from Wonder of Creation

The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground- trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. Genesis 2:9a
