How Does The Christian Doctrine Of Creation Square With The Picture Of An Evolving Universe We Receive From Science Today How Do The Badly Predatory Behavior And Wasteful Extinction Of Whole Species Fit In With A Christian Understanding These And A Host Of Related Questions Raised By Ordinary Experience Are Tackled In This Important And Original Work From Theologian Denis Edwards From Providence And Miracles To Resurrection And Intercessory Prayer, Edwards Shows How A Basically Noninterventionist Model Of Divine Action Does Justice To The Universe As We Know It And Also To Central Convictions Of Christian Faith About The Goodness Of God, The Promises Of God, And The Fulfillment Of Creation Here Is Wonderfully Lucid Theology Supporting A Vision Of How God Is At Work In The Universe. Edwards makes the case for panentheism, God in creation, pointing out that God acts through and within natural events His take on the resurrection of Jesus is instructive the resurrection is not an event outside of natural law, but reveals the basis of the natural order itself.
