Első borító
Rowman and Littlefield, 1995 - 446 oldal
The Natural History of Creation is the third and final installment in M.A. Corey's natural theology series. This remarkable trilogy-the first of its kind in this century-has worked in tandem with the findings of modern science to help spearhead the rebirth of the natural theology movement around the world. Nowhere will the reader find a more thorough description of the many breathtaking parallels between our modern scientific picture of the creation of the universe and the poetic description of the creation in Genesis One. Contents: The Scientific Accuracy of Genesis One; The Rise of Humanity; Physical Anthropology and Intelligent Design; God and the Nature of Time; Morality and Evolution; Human Nature and the Divine Image; Genesis and Moderate Anthropocentrism; A Self-Created Universe?; Frank Tipler's Omega Point Theory; Divine Action and the Role of Natural Processes; A Contrived World; Evolution and the Nature of the Miraculous; Is Life an Accident?; On the Validity of Natural Theology; A Scientific Interpretation of the Divine Nature; Epilogue: Towards a Genuine Religious Ecology.
