not yet rated|write a review
This book is the second part of a major project of comparative theology begun with Religion and Revelation (Clarendon Press, 1994), which looks at major concepts of faith in all four of the main scriptural religions of the world. In Religion and Creation, the author explores the idea of acreator God in the work of twentieth century writers from Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Christianity. He develops a positive concept of God which stresses God's dynamic and responsive relation to the temporal structure of the universe, and the importance of that structure to the self-expression ofthe divine being. Professor Ward goes on to present a Trinitarian doctrine of creation, drawing inspiration from a wider set of theistic traditions and recent discussions in physics in the realm of cosmology.

Editorial Reviews

`he deals delightfully with some of the needless confusions that abound in the writings of Tillich and McFague ... It is difficult to review books that one finds completely convincing. In my judgement on all the central questions, Ward is entirely right.'Ian Markham, Liverpool Hope University College, Religious Studies, Vol. 33 1997
