"Vail takes recent work on creation and chaos and offers a new perspective for Christian theology. This perspective retains the kernel of ancient creation doctrines that suppose God creates something from nothing, but it does so with a fresh perspective on . . . other theological doctrines, such as soteriology and sanctification. Those who seek a faithful reading of the Christian tradition and contemporary worldviews will be wise to work through the nuances of Vail's creative creation and chaos proposal."
--Thomas Jay Oord, Northwest Nazarene University
"Beginning 'in the beginning,' Vail's careful and constructive study enlists biblical scholars, theologians, scientists, and patristics to chart a bold new course in creation theology for Christians. How he gets there is just as important as his destination. An invaluable, interdisciplinary resource!"
--William P. Brown, Columbia Theological Seminary
"Vail's book surely does get creation and chaos talking with each other! Careful, detailed, and deliberate, Vail takes us knee-deep--and sometimes deeper--into the tangled issues of 'chaos' and its multiple meanings in order to explore the complexities of relation between Creator and creation. What emerges is an exhilarating doctrine of cooperative, conversational creation, a cosmic community yet in the making."
