Better than the Beginning: Creation in Biblical Perspective


Better than the Beginning is not a typical book on creation. It seeks to take the reader from the original creation to its intended goal–the new creation. The Bible is allowed to comment on creation’s author, act, purpose, covenantal context, and goal. This book will help readers see the Christocentric and Christoclimactic nature of biblical revelation. Creation is seen to be for the Son of God to bring glory to the triune God in bringing many sons to glory. What Adam failed to do the Lord Jesus Christ does.



“Creation is controversial, and truly we need to defend biblical doctrine concerning the origin of all things. Yet sometimes in the midst of controversy we can lose sight of the purpose of creation itself. Richard Barcellos uses the creation of the world like a great telescope to look up at the beauty of the Creator. His book focuses our attention on the triune God in Christ. He draws his doctrine from a careful exposition of the Bible, applies it to our practical lives, and calls us to sing the praises of Him who is worthy, “for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created” (Rev. 4:11). This is an edifying book, and I hope that many will read it.”

Joel R. Beeke


“. . .a God-glorifying, soul-edifying, life-transforming survey of this majestic and practical subject.”

David P. Murray


“Read this book, and you will deepen your understanding of the Lord’s purposes in bringing the world into existence.”

James M. Renihan


“Christ brings the creation train derailed by Adam to its original glorious destination! This insight is vital to an understanding of the gospel and the vital, scriptural distinction between the law and the gospel. May God give this volume great usefulness!”

Samuel E. Waldron
