Synopsis: "The world and all that is in it is mine," says the Lord. Should we then hold it in contempt? Pro-Existence means that man should be for existence, not against it. The external universe is there because God created it. Thus creativity, work and property--yes, even the things of the universe--have value. Udo Middelmann takes a long, hard look at man's place in the circle of reality, and he suggests how men can express their unique identity and recognize that their lives are significant. Author Biography: Udo Middelmann was born in Germany and educated in Germany, the United States, and Switzerland. He holds a degree in law from Freiburg University and a BD and MA from Covenant Seminary in St. Louis.
