On Genesis 1:
While more architectural imagery is highly important in understanding the creation and the notion of design is more appropriate in such a context, such imagery tends to be focused principally upon the inanimate creation... When we are dealing with the land animals in particular, what we see is a far more mediated mode of creation—‘let the earth bring forth’... In many respects, God’s creative work in this case is less akin to an external action upon passive material as an internal empowering of a process that arises within nature itself.
