Theologies of Creation : Creatio Ex Nihilo and Its New Rivals, Paperback / softback Book

Theologies of Creation : Creatio Ex Nihilo and Its New Rivals Paperback / softback

Edited by Thomas Jay (Northwest Nazarene University, USA) Oord


Humans have long wondered about the origin of the universe. And such questions are especially alive today as physicists offer metaphysical theories to account for the emergence of creation.

Theists have attributed the universe's origin to divine activity, and many have said God created something from absolute nothingness.

The venerable doctrine of creatio ex nihilo especially emphasizes God's initial creating activity.

Some contributors to this book explore new reasons creatio ex nihilo should continue to be embraced today.

But other contributors question the viability of creation from nothing and offer alternative initial creation options in its place.

These new alternatives explore a variety of options in light of recent scientific work, new biblical scholarship, and both new and old theological traditions.
