In an older, mechanical view of the universe, the place of God was assumed to be fixed and sovereign. But, in the last hundred years, newer notions of randomness and probability have sidelined older notions of both the operational regularity of the universe and the deity who ruled it. Entering this fray, Fraser Watts edits a state-of-the-art discussion of the relevance of contemporary scientific notions of lawfulness for vital matters in theology and philosophy.To approach the question, ten illustrious contributors explore an important but neglected topic on the interface of science and theology, i.e., the relationship between law and probability within creation. They look at this topic in a broad way: (a) from a variety of different disciplines, including history and philosophy, as well as theology and science; (b) in relation to a variety of different sciences, including cosmology, evolutionary biology and neuroscience; and (c) in a dialogue of different faith traditions.From cosmology to neuroscience, Creation: Law and Probability offers a coherent look at the new state of questions and paradigms at the nexus of religion and scientific inquiry.
