|Open and Relational Theologies|
Call for Proposals
This Consultation will engage in a highly participatory session discussing the doctrine of creatio ex nihilo. This doctrine of creation is viewed differently by many who accept the basic theological orientation that unites this Consultation. The session will begin with select panelists proposing reasons they either affirm or reject the doctrine. Audience members are encouraged subsequently to offer brief arguments in favor or against “creation out of nothing.” The session-long discussion should prove provocative on a number of levels. All are invited to participate in this special discussion devoted to evaluating the merits of creatio ex nihilo.
This Consultation brings together scholars of diverse interests and concerns. Prominent among those who participate are scholars who label themselves as process, openness, Wesleyan, feminist, liberation, Arminian, trinitarian, evangelical, etc. Those participating generally affirm the following:
