- Publisher This book provides a theological history of the Christian doctrine of creation and explores the implications of the doctrine for our modern scientific age. Colin Gunton begins by looking at the origins of the doctrine of creation in the Bible and relating the biblical view to Greek cosmology. He then examines the history of the doctrine, showing how theologians from Irenaeus to Barth have spoken of creation. Gunton argues that early in the development of the doctrine serious mistakes were made that have led to highly problematic outcomes, such as the divorce of theology from science. In the closing chapters Gunton focuses on related themes, such as providence, eschatology, and the ethics of creation.

- Publisher This series relates past thought from the history of Western theological traditions to areas of contemporary concern in fresh, innovative, and constructive ways. Designed for those with no formal theological training, these student-friendly volumes guide readers through core theological issues in a systematic and accessible way. This latest volume in the "Edinburgh Studies in Constructive Theology" series surveys the theological history of the Christian doctrine of creation and explores its implications for our modern scientific age. Gunton looks at the origins of the doctrine of creation in the Bible, examines the historical development of the doctrine, and discusses such related theological themes as providence, eschatology, and the ethics of creation.
