About-

Most Christians are unaware that there is such a thing as a biblical cosmology. That is, we do not have a clear idea of the whole of creation, both visible and invisible, its parts and realms, and how they fit together. We live by bits and pieces of conflicting notions supplied by the Bible and the secular world, and there is little comprehension of the overall design of reality and the all-embracing vision of creation that the Bible provides and the Church has taught for centuries. The matter seems too complex for the typical contemporary Christian and so the matter is dropped as irrelevant. The consequences are deadly; ignorance breeds arrogance, indifference, and finally spiritual death.

The Little Book of Big Frontiers intends to make the complex issue of cosmology understandable. Vivid and ordinary stories and images are used to illustrate extremely difficult concepts that will open up new frontiers for the reader. Readers will come away with a whole new understanding of the cosmos and how it works, integrating the interior realties of the soul with the world around them, rediscovering realms that were once known to the early Christians but, alas, are now lost within the secularization of our culture.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"There is more to being a human being, and to living in this lavish, variegated cosmos, than meets the eye or fills the ear. But we can only 'see' into those deeper realities--realities of spirit--with the 'eye of the heart,' as Paul explains (Eph. 1.16). Alas, for too many of us, that 'eye' has grown dim due to disuse. We need to be fitted with special lenses that can help us see beyond the frontiers of physical reality into the deep inward and spectacular outward verities of the unseen realm. John E. Worgul provides just such 'eye wear' in his charming book. Like a Roger Tory Peterson field guide, The LIttle Book of Big Frontiers paints vivid pictures of the landscape of unseen things, identifying the key figures to be encountered there, helping us understand their distinguishing traits, and showing us where we fit in the whole grand scheme. You'll want to read this book slowly and reflectively, then tuck it in a pocket to keep it with you for the rest of your journey with the Lord."
