The need to position Christianity in relation to other religions, most notably Judaism and Islam, has brought about a renewed interest in the theme of creation, which has been off the theological agenda for much of the 20th century. Environmentalists, biologists, feminists and process theologians have all registered concerns, from their different perspectives, about the way in which the traditional doctrine of creation characterizes the relationship between the cosmos and its creator. Furthermore, the hoilism of the New Age and its resonance with eastern patterns of thought seems to offer something radically different from the Judaeo-Christian understanding of the creation. It is in the light of these concerns that the author argues for the doctrine of creation as a distinctively Christian article of faith. By recognizing at the same time that criticisms which have been made of its traditional formulations must be properly acknowledged and accommodated, the author is able to use the insights from secular disciples to construct a theology of creation which is responsible.;This book represents not only an introduction to a neglected aspect of Christian doctrine, but also an example of the best kind of applied theology, where Christianity is brought into explicit dialogue with contemporary issues and culture.

David Fergusson argues for the doctrine of creation as a distinctively Christian article of faith. In recognizing at the same time that criticisms made of its traditional formulations must be properly acknowledged and accommodated, the author is able to use the best insights from secular disciplines to construct a theology of creation which is truly responsible.
