What on Earth is God Doing? Relating Theology and Science through Biblical Theology

Graham J. O'Brien, Timothy Harris

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The article focuses on developing a unique approach in the use of biblical theology for relating science and theology particularly on an understanding about the Mission of God (missio Dei). It discusses the general sphere of creation with the garden planted by God not being coextensive with creation, the representation of the purpose of creation in Genesis 1 and 2 and the process of extending the garden in a continuing creation. It also notes science that continues toward fulfillment.
