Creatio ex nihilo

The doctrine of creation out of nothing is an interesting point of divergence between Jewish and Christian theism as usually defined today, and proponents of views such as process theology.

Ken Schenck, in a recent blog entry, recognizes that the doctrine is not strictly Biblical, and enters the Christian tradition later (and the Jewish tradition much later). He nonetheless asks what the relationship between God and the universe looks like if one accepts this doctrine on faith. I’ve posted a reply to his blog entry on this subject, and invite readers here to pay his blog a visit and join in the conversation that will hopefully ensue.
