Item description for Creation out of Nothing: A Biblical, Philosophical, and Scientific Exploration by Paul Copan & William Lane Craig...
Overview Copan and Craig offer a robust defense of the Christian doctrine of "creatio ex nihilo," focusing on the biblical, theological, extra-biblical, philosophical, and scientific supports for the doctrine.
Publishers Description The Christian church has historically believed that God created the universe out of nothing. But some theologians and non-Christian groups believe that the universe has always existed along with God. Who is correct? Does it matter? In Creation out of Nothing, authors Paul Copan and William Lane Craig examine the biblical, philosophical, and scientific case for creation out of nothing. Furthermore, they make it clear that nothing less than the uniqueness and sovereignty of God are at stake. This book will challenge all thoughtful Christians to understand why it is important to believe in the doctrine of creation out of nothing.

Creation "ex-nihilo" Jul 19, 2007
This book is a tour-de-force by Drs. William Lane Craig and Paul Copan. They present very convicing evidence that backs up the Biblical claim that God created the world out of nothing. Any physicist or philosopher wishing to peddle some alternative theory of how the universe came into being must engage this masterpiece first.
Creation ex nihilo Nov 4, 2005
I read this book last week and found it very edifying. William lane Craig and Paul Copen have done a great job on this issue. Readers must remember that the book goes through the Bibical, philosophical and scientific evidence (which is noted in the title) for Creation out of nothing.
The Author go through first, the biblcial evidence of the Old Testament and then to the New Testament. They also travel the road of extra biblical evidence and then get into the philosophical arguements and they were quite good. I honestly got lost about the abstarct objects.( but this doesn't mean that this wasn't a well written chapter. It just mean I need more understanding in the world of philosophy, which I thought I had enough but I guess I don't) The scienctific was great. this is a great book but be prepared to be mentally engaged.
