Product Description

Templeton award-winner Ellis and co-author Murphy discuss how theological assumptions affect our entire cosmological worldview, affirming that the Anabaptist vision of a self-limiting, non-interventionist, "kenotic" God is most in harmony with the known evidence about the natural world, calling for nonviolence and self-sacrifice. 272 pages, softcover. Fortress.

Publisher's Description

Ellis and Murphy show how contemporary sciences actually support a religiously based ethic of nonviolence, not by appealing to the Enlightment's mechanismic Creator God or revelation's Father God but by discerning the transcendent ground in the laws of nature, the emergence of intelligent freedom, and the echoes of "knoetic" self-giving in cosmology and biology.
