This book is the second part of a major project of comparative theology begun with Religion and Revelation, which was published in 1994, which looks at major concepts of faith in all four of the main scriptural religions of the world. This book explores the idea of a creator God in the work of 20th-century writers from Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Christianity. He develops a positive concept of God which stresses God's dynamic and responsive relation to the temporal structure of the universe, and the importance of that structure to the self-expression of the divine being. He goes on to present a Trinitarian doctrine of creation, drawing inspiration from a wider set of theistic traditions and recent discussions in physics in the realm of cosmology.
