Product Description

How does the Spirit relate to the world in which we live? How does the Spirit relate to the world to come, also known as the new creation? The Spirit in Creation and New Creation gathers fifteen scholars--experts in physics, biology, mathematics, psychology, sociology, and theology--to ponder these questions, each one marshaling his own disciplinary tools and unique perspective.

The contributors represent a variety of countries--including Germany, Greece, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the Ukraine--and a number of faith traditions, from Russian and Greek Orthodox to Roman Catholic to Pentecostal. Discussing scientific and theological perspectives on the Spirit's role in creation and in the new creation, the contributors produce a fruitful dialogue that will lead to a deeper understanding of and respect for the Spirit's creative work.
