Overview

Michael Welker's newest book opens new vistas on the theology of creation and challenges reigning notions of nature, transcendence, revelation, and life in biblical studies, philosophy, and theology.

Based on his Warfield Lectures at Princeton, the volume probes the classical creation accounts of Genesis 1 and 2. Welker exhumes a more dynamic, concrete, pluralistic sense of creation, with accents on interdependence, unrest, and the text's "astounding potential for critique of deeply ingrained conceptions and ways of thinking." Welker then sketches surprising and creative interpretations of the text's most perplexing features: the angelic, world, the image of God in humans, dominion, sin and the "fall."

In these meditations, Mattison reminds us that the death of Christ is the clearest expression of God's redeeming love for us. The cross, once a sign of defeat and shame, has become a sign of victory over sin and death. Each meditation is accompanied by hymns and poetry that enlarge the possible meanings of Jesus' last words, and by questions for reflection or discussion.
