Creation and Complexity are two themes that draw the sciences and theology together. The remarkable advances of science in the modern period have opened up new knowledge and revealed ever deepening layers of complexity in the world from the cosmic macro level to the micro world of quantum. There seems no end to the rich tapestry of the cosmic order and process. A science of complexity has been spawned. The discoveries of the sciences have been matched in the twentieth century by a renewal in the doctrine of creation. Behind this lies a renaissance in trinitarian thinking which offers fresh insight into the dynamic of God in creation - past, present and future. The complexity of the triune God in creation find echoes in the rich complexity of the world uncovered by the contemporary sciences. This book explores the nature of complexity in God's creation.
