It’s a new year, but I’m still working on some of my school books from 2016. One of them is Francis Shaeffer’s Trilogy, a collection of three of his books, including The God Who Is There. In this day and age, when many people reduce humans to very intelligent animals or some kind of biological machine, this quote provides an interesting contrast:
To ask that man should have been made so that he was not able to revolt is to ask that God’s creation should have ceased after He created plants and animals. It is to ask that man should be reduced to machine programming. It is to ask that man as man should not exist.
The God Who Is There
On my reading list this week:
Starcross by Philip Reeve: I really enjoyed the first book of this whimsical steampunk series, Larklight, and I want to finish the second book. I got it as an audiobook from the library, but what with school and trying to finish up Little Dorrit, I’ve gotten a bit sidetracked.
The Hacked World Order by Adam Segal: Another library book I’m trying to finish. I may or may not be researching something for a project… 😉

So true about man’s place in the created order and his role being defined by God’s design. Love the quote!
