With a few ticks of the second hand and the quick strokes of a fountain pen, young Yvonnah loses everything familiar to her, including her name. Clinging to her half of a wishbone that holds a precious promise, she embarks on a new and often bewildering life. Told from a child's perspective and intertwined with nostalgic adult recollections, Lacey remembers with comical inquisitiveness her life on the rural Delmarva Peninsula in the 1960s amid unlikely friendships, tragedy, healing, and God. The Trees Will Clap is a novel for those who have ever wondered where God is in the midst of heartbreak and for those of us who have found Him there.

"The Trees Will Clap Their Hands" looks at the story of the Garden of Eden and traces its most important themes throughout the Old and New Testaments. We see how biblical writers over the centuries drew upon the story to describe the times in which they lived and to envision a new future for themselves and for God's people. Though many people think of the garden as something like the ultimate vacation spot, we learn that it is in fact the ultimate vocation destination. It is primarily a place of devotion and worship of God. This basic truth binds the Bible together from Genesis to Revelation. Through this study we discover that the garden is not just a biblical or historical landmark, nor is it only a future hope, but it is a place that we are invited to live in today.

Ever since Newton, people - including Christians - have considered matter to be strictly mechanical, uninformed by any spirit and without sentience. Such a view, says Virginia Owens, demotes to mere metaphor all the natural imagery of Scripture that calls for creation to participate in the praise of its maker. Now, however, contemporary physical theory offers us an expanded view of the cosmos, which suggests that it is indeed sentient and informed with knowledge. For Christians, Virginia Owens argues in this book, the cosmos bears witness to the Incarnation itself. Owens offers a brief history and exploration of physics, interwoven with vivid and provocative perceptions of the physical world (reminiscent of the writings of Annie Dillard). The heavens really do proclaim the glory of God, Owens insists. The prophet's figure of trees clapping their hands is a living reality. And the Trees Clap Their Hands will appeal to all general readers who are interested in the relationship between faith and our understanding of the physical world.

For former biologist Dr Ruth Bancewicz, experiencing scientific research first hand brings a sense of awe that enhances faith. As a communicator of science and Christianity over the last ten years, she has encountered many others who have similar stories to tell. This book is a distillation of that experience, and an exploration of the common ground that exists between science and faith. Science can be unglamorous and difficult, but people enjoy it. It gives the opportunity to use creativity and imagination, to appreciate the beauty of the natural world, and to experience the wonder and awe of finding out new things - thinking God's thoughts after him. Through the eyes of the author and six other experienced scientists, God in the Lab shows how science can build faith in God, and gently challenges non-Christians to consider the connections between science and faith.
