Publisher's Description

Here Peacocke and Pederson compose a rhapsody on divine creativity in three movements. Through an extended analogy, they reveal how Christian understandings of creation can be brightly lit by scientific insights and approached analogously through examining musical creativity. They also include relevant selections on an accompanying CD-ROM. Composition, fugal arrangement, rhythm and tempo, jazz improvization all shed light on creation. Creation from nothing, continual creation, incarnate creativity, communal or ecclesial creativity, open-ended future creativity--new ways of thinking about the Christian teaching are illumined and exemplified in musical creativity from Bach to Monk:
Prelude
First Movement: Creation with Time
Second Movement: Creation in Time
Bridge Passage: Creation Fulfilled
Third Movement: Working at Creation
Coda: Ongoing Creation
