"This is a deeply Christian meditation that speaks to the world. It needs to be heard and reflected upon."
--From the Foreword by David Jasper, University of Glasgow
"Grounded in a fully developed Trinitarian faith, Govaerts offers a radical new approach to the Christian relationship with creation. From his wide-ranging exploration of scientific, philosophic, theological, biblical, and patristic thought emerges a synthesis both intellectually rigorous and spiritually profound. Creation is shown to be non-deterministic and yet open to its creator's transformative guidance, so that through co-operation (cosmic prayer) all levels of creation, including humankind, can enter into relationship with God."
--Jennifer Dines, Heythrop College
"Many Christians who desire to take on board the insights of Darwinian evolution regarding the natural world, and the place of humans in it, may feel there to be a dearth of theological resources to assist them in doing so. This book--a poetic synthesis of careful biblical exegesis, detailed reflection on patristic writers, and insights from modern scientist-theologians--offers precisely the kind of theological engagement with these issues that will be found hugely valuable."
--Michael Fuller, Theological Institute of the Scottish Episcopal Church
