The Goodness of Creation
May, 2021

What do Christians mean when they confess that creation is good? The question is compounded by the appearance of evil in the world. This series explores for elements of creation’s goodness: The goodness of its Creator, created being, materiality, and its end.

Plundering Eden
March, 2021

This book fits within that emerging field of Christian theological responses to ecological problems. In Plundering Eden, Wagenfuhr claims that the root cause of our ecological is a broken imagination, and he argues that reconciliation with God the Creator through Jesus Christ is the only means to ecological healing through a renewed, kenotic imagination expressed in the creation of an alternate environment that reveals the kingdom of God--the ekklesia.

The Genealogical Adam and Eve
August, 2020

Evolutionary science teaches that humans arose as a population, sharing common ancestors with other animals. The book of Genesis seems to say that all humans descended from Adam and Eve, a couple specially created by God. These two teachings seem contradictory, but is that necessarily so? In the Genalogical Adam and Eve, Swamidass draws upon some well-established but overlooked scientific insights to advance a new proposal on this old conversation.

Divine Action and the Human Mind
June, 2020

Is the human mind uniquely nonphysical or even spiritual, such that divine intentions can meet physical realities? As scholars in science and religion have spent decades attempting to identify a 'causal joint' between God and the natural world, human consciousness has been often privileged as just such a locus of divine-human interaction. Resisting this intuitively dualistic model, as well as contemporary noninterventionist theories divine action theories, Sarah Lane Ritchie argues that a theologically robust theistic naturalism, which she believes offers a more compelling vision of divine action in the mind.

Adam and the Genome
June, 2017

Prevailing genomic science holds that humans descend from a large population. Is this science to be believed and why? And biblically and theologically, what does this mean for the fate of Adam and Eve? In this Biologos sponsored book, evangelical geneticist Dennis Venema and popular New Testament scholar Scot McKnight combine their expertise to proffer an account of “Adam and the genome.”
