Item description for To Begin With, God Created: Biblical Theologies of Creation by Karl Loning & Erich Zenger...

Biblical creation faith (as found in the Hebrew Scriptures) and biblical salvation faith (as found in the later Christian Scriptures) both have important statements regarding creation theology. In To Begin With, God Created . . . , Karl Loning and Erich Zenger bring the parts of the divided yet unified Christian Bible into dialogue with one another, so that the entire biblical tradition attains a new life. Here an Old Testament scholar and a New Testament scholar offer their differing perspectives in constant encounter, stressing that the witness of the entire Bible is much more strongly shaped by the theology of creation than many have believed. Taking creation theology as their focus, the authors bring the two parts of the Christian Bible into dialogue with one another so that their many voices and their single basic message can be heard. It also brings into discussion, on the horizon of Christian theology, the riches of the message of the entire Bible in such a way that the theological dignity of post-biblical Judaism, rediscovered by Vatican II, does not suffer. The authors help us see that the many voices of the Scriptures should be heard as "canonical" voices, as a drawing nearer to the great mystery of creation theology, namely that the God of the Bible is profoundly a God of life who as such seeks a living relationship with "heaven and earth."

Reviews - What do customers think about To Begin With, God Created: Biblical Theologies of Creation?

and your point being?  Jan 8, 2001
To Begin with, God Created; Biblical Theologies of Creation, by Karl Loning and Erich Zenger, is "an attempt to bring the parts of the divided yet unified Christian bible into dialogue with one another in respect to the theology of Creation." Unlike most books on creation, this one focuses on the New Testament texts and there relevance to the theology of creation, and spends little time with Genesis. When it does deal with the Genesis creations story in the early chapters, it treats it as being similar to other Ancient Near Eastern mythologies, with only minor differences. The scant New Testament creation verses are over analyzed, filling most of the 190 pages. This book was so mind-numbing to read, and I still am not sure of its point. But, hey, you have got to love the title.
