Good Ground: Volume 1
by Beth Madison (Northeastern Baptist Press, 2022)
Written by a long-term soil scientist who teaches at Union University in Jackson, TN, Good Ground: Volume 1 informs the reader about soil science, but it more significantly uses illustrations from that created world to help us understand God and His work. I found the book to be fascinating scientifically and enriching spiritually.
To be honest, it’s the first adjective in the subtitle that drew me to this book: concise. Others have written strong biblical theologies of mission, but this work shows God’s heart from Genesis to Revelation in a succinct and readable fashion (149 pp) while still evidencing scholarly research. Theology of Mission is worth adding to your collection.
