Item Description...
Overview
Based on his Warfield Lectures at Princeton, Welker's volume probes the classical creation accounts of Genesis 1 and 2. Creation, he shows, is not simply "reality." He exhumes a more concrete, dynamic, pluralistic sense of creation, with its accents on interdependence, unrest, and the text's "astounding potential for critique of deeply ingrained conceptions and ways of thinking." Welker then sketches surprising and creative interpretations of those textual features most perplexing of modern "common sense": the angelic world, the image of God in humans, the mandate of domination, sin, and "the fall." Opening new alternatives in biblical theology, philosophy, and religion and science, Welker's approach allows the novel and discordant strains in the biblical text to sound again.

Publishers Description
Michael Welker's newest book opens new vistas on the theology of creation and challenges reigning notions of nature, transcendence, revelation, and life in biblical studies, philosophy, and theology.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Questioning Assumptions about Creation  Mar 7, 2007
Michael Welker's work, while receiving mixed responses in the academic world, seems to me to be well worthwhile. Welker exegetically works his way through the opening chapters of the Bible to question our assumptions about the nature of creation. In doing so he touches on a wide range of subjects including natural revelation, angels, the mandate of dominion and sin.

Welker's treatment of Calvin's work on Natural Revelation is perhaps one of the most concise and insightful treatments of the topic that this reader has ever come across.

Even seemingly innane subjects such as 'Creation as the Heavens and the Earth' turn into a captivating analysis of transcendence and immanence in Welker's careful hands. He then subverts certain assumptions regarding degrees of transcendence when he writes, 'The creatureliness of the heavens allows us to assume a continuity even in that realm of the world which is innaccessible to us'(p39).

Welker's vision of creation highlights of interdependence, relative transcendence, and God's presence. The cover's assertion of the text's "astounding potential for critique of deeply ingrained conceptions and ways of thinking" holds true.

Definitely a worthwhile read.
