The title is drawn from Isaiah 55 and the author's conviction that the imagery of Scripture calls for creation to participate in the praise of its maker. Following Newton and the rise of the empirical scientific method, nature has often been seen as mechanical, without sentience, following fateful rules. However, with the rise of expanding views of the cosmos from contemporary physics, there are increasingly more ways to identify creation bearing witness to incarnation. Here Owens offers a brief history and exploration of physics, interwoven with vivid and provocative perceptions of the physical world, challenging us to be alert, to be on the watch as it were for the beauty and glory of God ever present around us. As C.S. Lewis has said (quoted in the opening), ''We may ignore, but we can nowhere evade, the presence of God. The world is crowded with Him. He walks everywhere incognito. And the incognito is not always hard to penetrate. The real labour is to attend. In fact, to come awake. Still more, to remain awake.'' This book tunes our eyes to a sharper focus.
