This is the second book in a trilogy tracing major concepts in the four scriptural faiths of the world: Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Christianity. Following the first book on Revelation, this new book focuses on the question of Creation. Ward explores what modern thinkers across the world and across faiths have had to say on the topic. In addition, he considers the insights of modern physics, and shows how the universe can be seen as the expression of the mind and heart of God.
