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.

Writing this book, the Rvd. Bonting has followed suit of some notable forerunners, fellow members of the 'Society of Ordained Scientists,' A.

He applied this theology in dealing with the topic of creation as cosmic and biological evolution.Read more ›
