The How of Creation: Parameters for Gracious and Fruitful Dialogue
Hastings provides a biblical and theological basis for healthy and fruitful dialogue on the theology and science of origins.
The Biblical Creation in its Ancient Near Eastern Context
Evolutionary Creation: A Christian Approach to Evolution
Ephesians 4:7-16: Moving the Science/Faith Discussion Forward
In this essay, Hastings looks at “front edge” areas for promoting healthy dialogue in the field of science and Christian theology, areas which are specifically theological in nature.
Biblical Creation and Storytelling: Cosmogony, Combat and Covenant
The literary conventions employed in Genesis chapter 1 mark it out, not as a scientific document describing material origins, but as a theological polemic against surrounding ancient Near Eastern pagan religions. Creation language here and elsewhere in Scripture is not about establishing scientific origins of material substance and structure but about covenantal establishment and worldview.
