"Leaving the concert and going back ino the night-time streets of London, I just became a little more aware or the ground beneath my feet, the air I breathed and the sky above my head as something more significant and purposeful than I had before."
- Kenwyn Pierce (Council for the World's Mission Magazine)
In the days of the great classical Oratorios, their composers were invariably Creationists. Modern perception about the origins of life and its ultimate destiny vary widely.
The Biblical treatment of these themes remains constant, whatever the insights of scientific research or evolutionary theories may bring. The Bible is not a scientific document although its teachings have inspired some of the finest brains and richest souls of humanity.
Re:Creation uses only the biblical text to tell the story. The availability of modern Bible translations provides an opportunity to present the great themes in language and style accessible to the contemporary listener. Like so many other sacred works, the centrality of the person of Jesus and His ministry are irresistible. However, Re:Creation seeks to use the biblical reflections on the person and work of Jesus to probe the significance of these events in the Divine scheme as they affect the whole of creation.
"Re:Creation’s journey captures the whole essence of man’s existence and his relationship with God from the beginning of time, to the present and even into the future prophesied in Revelation"
- William Dove (Christian Today)
