Creation – is now available (and has been for a couple of months in the United States). Here’s the blurb from Amazon.co.uk:
This book explores anew the theme of creation in Scripture, tradition, and contemporary theology. David Fergusson defends the classical account of creation out of nothing but pays more sustained attention than the Christian tradition typically has given to the holistic significance of the created world. Offering both doctrinal exposition and apologetic argument, Fergusson discusses creation in relation to the problem of evil and the fall, divine providence, deism, Darwinian evolution, environmental ethics, animal rights, and more. Unusually, the book also touches on the topic of extraterrestrial intelligence. Concise and accessible, Fergusson’s Creation will be particularly useful to students and others seeking a well-informed overview of this important subject.
Over the last few years, Fergusson has written a few pieces on the doctrine of providence, so I’ll be interested to know if he says anything new here about the subject. Otherwise, judging by this page, it looks like his monograph on providence is still in the works.
