Why God Created the World

I’ve just finished writing my first book for Navpress. It’s called Why God Created the World: A Jonathan Edwards Adaptation and will be released on July 15, 2014. It’s a part of what will hopefully be a series of old books which I’m adapting for the modern reader. The trailer will be ready soon, but here’s the opening paragraph just to give you a feel for the content:

For most of my life, I never thought to ask myself why God created the world. I had asked myself the question, “why did God create me specifically,” which seemed like a more practical thing to wonder. But the answers I found to that question always struck me as shallow. I think that’s because it’s impossible to understand what part we play in a story if we have never grasped what the story is about in the first place.
