"This is the right book on the right topic at the right time. By intimately linking Trinity and creation, Powell successfully integrates recent science with a distinctively Christian view of the nature and acts of God. His profound meditation on the world's participation in God falls neither into a world-abandoning transcendence nor a God-obscuring spirituality of immanence. One by one, the core chapters explore the implications of trinitarian participation in the physical, biological, and human worlds.... I read this book with growing excitement: rarely does one find theology so powerfully and systematically applied to state-of-the-art scientific knowledge of the world."
Philip Clayton, Ingraham Professor, Claremont School of Theology
"I appreciate the way in which Powell uses the dialectic of identity and difference first to explain a communitarian model of the Trinity and then to set forth an up-to-date understanding of the natural world. He gracefully integrates current scientific data from the natural and social sciences with a conceptual scheme derived from philosophy and theology. I recommend this book..."
