Overview

Creation out of Nothing: A Biblical, Philosophical, and Scientific Exploration by Paul Copan, William Lane Craig

In this lucid and insightful book, Paul Copan and William Lane Craig fully explore the doctrine of creatio ex nihilo, focusing on biblical, extrabiblical, theological, philosophical, and scientific support for the doctrine. Creation out of Nothing begins with a statement about the significance of creatio ex nihilo that clearly defines what is meant -- and what is not meant -- by the concept. The authors discuss the doctrine within the context of the Old and New Testaments and extrabiblical material. Copan and Craig then discuss the philosophical issues of creation versus conservation and the finite versus infinite past before addressing the scientific confirmation of creatio ex nihilo.
