Item description for Chaos Theology: A Revised Creation Theology by Sjord L. Bonting...
Overview "In the beginning" Sjoerd Bonting, scientist and Anglican priest, explores an alternative to the idea that God created the universe out of nothing at all. Instead, looking at Genesis 1, he explores the implications of God's creation out of chaos: when the earth was without form and void. But some of that original chaos remains, with consequences for both morals and disease.

Reviews - What do customers think about Chaos Theology: A Revised Creation Theology?
Very Interesting Aug 6, 2006
This author offers a very intresting explanation for the problem of evil(theodicy). The residual chaos from Gen 1:2 lingers on, causing cosmic problems ranging from storms to diseases. This is a very smart book by an Anglican priest, theologian and scientist, Sjoerd Bonting; but I don't necessarily agree with some of his conclusions. He denies creation ex nihilo (from nothing)disagreeing with the interpretation given to some New Testament verses that seem to indicate he is wrong (if taken at face value). He points to the apparent fine-tuning and contingent nature of the universe, and the similarities between Gen 1 and evolution, as evidence that God really did create the universe. Bonting is no fundamentalist and this is no Josh McDowell-like case for creationism. Expect a quick (106 pages) accessible and smart read.
