God and Creation: An Ecumenical Symposium
This collection of essays, which originated in 1987 at a symposium entitled God and Creation: an Ecumenical Symposium in Comparative Religious Thought, is devoted to the doctrine of creation in the three Western monotheistic faiths: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Scholars from all three traditions investigate the historical and constructive aspects of this doctrine within an ecumenical environment. Several comparative dimensions, especially on the relation between creation and emanation, have been highlighted.
