God After the Big Bang Toward a Revision of Classical Theism
George De Schrijver

Explaining the origins of the universe has long been a field where religion and science has long contended with each other. Abandoning the claims of classical theism, George Coyne inputs the Darwinian theory of evolution and the process philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead in pointing out the role of God in an evolutionary, intrinsically fertile universe, where chance and necessity interacts in an already creative environment. The result is a scientific and theological justification of a Creator-God, not as the ordergiver through a preconceived plan, but as one Who, out of generosity, shares the creative power with finite entities.
