Well, this weekend I was able to go visit some relatives and to go to the Creation Museum.
So, to begin, many thanks to Chris and Christa – the cool family members of mine who allowed me, my mom and dad, and my little sisters share their abode with them for the weekend… and to partake of their food, and use their cloths, and even to keep some of their cloths!
I thought that the Creation Museum was pretty cool. It is designed to take you through the 7 C’s of history: Creation, Corruption, Catastrophe, Confusion, Christ, Cross, Consummation. There are lots of displays, screens, and models set up throughout the museum that were all pretty neat.
My second favorite part of the museum was the planetarium. There we watched a presentation on the size of the universe. While you probably don’t have a dome screen and projector with which to watch the presentation, it is available on DVD.
As for my favorite part of the Creation Museum… it was definitely the book store. The book store was particularly cool because of the selection of works by the Puritans that they had available, and the large selection of works by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones. I had a difficult time determining which books I would purchase, but I finally decided on four. 1) A Puritan Golden Treasure by I.D.E. Thomas, 2) The Doctrine of Repentance by Thomas Watson, 3) The Glory of Christ by John Owen, and 4) The Art of Prophesying by William Perkins.
I can almost guarantee that there will be a mass of quotes from different Puritans in many of the upcoming posts.
