The Faithful Creator

The Faithful Creator

Affirming Creation and Providence in an Age of Anxiety.
As the apostle Paul writes in his letter to the Romans (8:22), creation groans
for redemption - but can we trust God to make all things new?
The doctrines of creation and providence address the question of human anxiety
in the face of suffering and evil. In a world that often seems to be spinning
out of control, Christian faith confesses a 'faithful Creator' (1 Peter 4:19)
who promises a glorious future for all creation.
In this scholarly and accessible volume, Ron Highfield presents an overview of
creation, providence and the problem of evil. He explores a wide range of
issues, including the biblical accounts of creation, the dialogue between
theology and science, models of providence, philosophical problems of evil and
the proposals of open theism and process theism.
'The Faithful Creator' will be of value to all who wish to enrich and
strengthen their faith through serious theological reflection. The apostle
Peter exhorted the harassed and persecuted believers in Asia Minor to commit
themselves into the hands of their faithful Creator, and this rings as true
today as it did in Peter's time. (= 9780830840823)
In this splendid book, Ron Highfield carefully argues that a proper " theological understanding of God's creative action and providential care for
all things may afford peace and assurance in this age of anxiety. Solidly
grounded in Scripture and masterfully engaging key figures in both classical
and contemporary theology, Highfield employs the notions of analogy and
secondary causality to preserve God's transcendence and immanence, while
affirming human freedom and the authentic causality of creatures. - " Michael J. Dodds
