"Sean McDonough blends profound biblical exposition with rich theological and philosophical reflection. This wide-ranging study not only addresses both classical concerns and contemporary questions, but stimulates worship and faithful participation in God's creation project."
--Michael O'Neil, director of postgraduate research, Vose Seminary, Western Australia
"Surely, one of the most important theological issues of the day is creation, and scholars have rightly focused in particular on the connection between creation and new creation. Few scholars bring more to the topic than New Testament theologian Sean McDonough. His book explores the Christian doctrine of creation by drawing upon a broad array of theologians, Protestant, Orthodox, and Catholic--from Irenaeus to Barth. The result is a book of astonishing breadth and impressive learning."
--Richard Clifford, professor emeritus of Old Testament, Boston College School of Theology and Ministry
