Creation and Word

I started reading Gospel and Kingdom by Graeme Goldsworthy yesterday.  Goldsworthy is one of the more quotable authors I've read, as of late.  Here is one from chapter six of Gospel and Kingdom:
"The creatorship of God tells us that all reality is God's reality; all truth is God's truth.  Nothing exists except by the will and word of God.  One could write whole books on the implication of creation for a Christian approach to education, politics, economics, family life, moral values, or scientific research.  if we believe in God as Creator, we may not divide the world into spiritual and secular  The fact that all reality depends upon the creative word of God means that the word of God must judge the ideas of men about truth and error, not the other way round" (58-59, italics original).
