In last week’s Issues in Perspective, I explored the topic of thinking biblically about space exploration. Human beings are the only creatures created in God’s image. Among other things, that means humans represent God. We are God’s dominion stewards over His world (see Genesis 1:26ff).

The Apollo space program harnessed nearly everything that was unique about American civilization to realize one of humanity’s greatest achievements.
