FROM THE BACK COVER
What sort of God would create such an unimaginably vast and beautiful universe? What sort of God would create humanity with such extraordinary power of creation and destruction? What sort of God would create a world full of life yet plagued by earthquakes and genetic disorders? In the words of one of this book’s authors, the Christian God is the loving, “reckless” God who, like the devoted father of the prodigal, risks himself for the sake of relationship. This book ponders the wonders of a universe that has given birth to life—and the challenges facing human beings made in the image of a “reckless” God.
"This impressive collection shows that, far from there being a conflict between science and Christian faith, the interaction furnishes fruitful dialogue and mutual enrichment." — Rodney Holder, Former Course Director, Faraday Institute for Science & Religion, Cambridge University
