Format: Paperback
"It has become next to impossible for a single mind fully to command more than a small specialized portion of science .. I can see no escape from this dilemma .. than that some of us should venture to embark on a synthesis of facts," E. Schrödinger

Alternative Accounts:

Dr. Bonting, a published scientist and theologian, explores alternatives to the 'creatio ex nihilo' dogma, that God created the universe out of nothing at all.

The mystery of creation has been lately a territory for conflict, Intelligent design is challenging Darwinian mutation, led by outstanding scientists M. Behe and W. Dembski. Evolution 'thesis,' is assailed by biblical literalist, while contradicted by biblical scholar of scientific knowledge and theologian who appreciate modern developments in science.

Scope of Chaos Theology:

Writing this book, the Rvd. Bonting has followed suit of some notable forerunners, fellow members of the 'Society of Ordained Scientists,' A. Peacocke and John Polkinghorne, focusing on his developed Chaos Theology in contrast to other cosmologies. On this issue he says that he felt it presented several conceptual, scientific, biblical problems, and cultivates serious theological concepts. Examining Genesis 1, he explored the implications of God's creation out of chaos, "earth was without form and void." The biblical idea of an initial chaos, from which 'chaos theology' was developed could clarify some theological problems, in reconciliation of theological and scientific worldviews. He applied this theology in dealing with the topic of creation as cosmic and biological evolution.
