God's Greatness in Creation Seminar
For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. (Romans 1:20)
Colonel Jeffrey N. Williams grew up on a farm in a rural community in Wisconsin. He graduated from the United States Military Academy (USMA) at West Point in 1980 and served more than 27 years in the U.S. Army. Williams holds a bachelor's degree from USMA, master's and aerospace engineering degrees from the Naval Postgraduate School, and a master's degree from the Naval War College. In 1996, he was selected by NASA as an astronaut candidate and flew as a mission specialist and flight engineer aboard STS-101 in 2000. He is a veteran of three space flights. Jeffrey's total time in space of 362 days currently places him fourth on the all-time U.S. list of long-duration space travelers.
Williams is a committed Christian. Following his return from the Expedition 21 mission (September 2009 - March 2010), he wrote the book The Work of His Hands: A View Of God's Creation From Space about his experience in space. The book reflects in Williams words the "vivid lessons about the meticulous goodness of divine providence, God's care for His creation, and His wisdom in ordering the universe."
