Particular prominence is given to discussion of creation 'out of nothing', the relation of eternal creator to temporal creation, the trinitarian construction of the doctrine and its ethical implications. Opens up new dimensions to an important topic.
"Colin Gunton has once again assembled a stellar cast to help us appreciate how creation has come to centre stage in Christian theology. Anyone fascinated by the interconnections between creation and redemption, as well as the recovery of a fully trinitarian Christian theology, will find here an illuminating guide."--Theology Today
"This volume deserves close attention. Especially beneficial are the ways in which a number of a number of essays critically engage the major theses of others. This not only provides for an enjoyable read but helpfully introduces the reader to some of the most salient issues surrounding the doctrine of creation today."--Trinity Journal
"The pace of contemporary technological and scientific achievement has made issues of cosmology and ecology of crucial importance to this traditional Christian view of creation, a point noted by some this books contributors. Colin Gunton has collected some fine essays together to a form a 'state of the art' volume on the traditional or dogmatic view of the doctrine of creation."--Theological Book Review
