In his book The Birds Our Teachers, John Stott writes:
“As a matter of fact, Scripture bids us…include in our interest everything God has made: ‘Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them’ (Psalm 111:2 NRSV). Since ‘the works of the Lord’ refer to his works of both creation and redemption, it seems to me that nature study and Bible study should go together. Many Christians have a good doctrine of redemption, but need a better doctrine of creation. We out to pursue at least one apsect of natural history.”
I tend to agree.
