Using one of the cornerstones of Christianity the mystery of the Trinity Jeffrey Pugh seeks to bridge the gap between ancient faith traditions and scientific inquiry, in part by celebrating that gap itself as the essence of God. Drawing on Plato, Irenaeus, the Cappadocians, and many others, Pugh asks us to think of God s energies behind the processes of creation and life, and the creator of all possibilities for those processes. This God also creates the range of possibilities for that process, taking the risk of allowing such a range, and suffering with us in some of the bad outcomes. Jeffrey C. Pugh is Professor of Religion at Elon University in Elon, North Carolina, and is the author of The Matrix of Faith: Reclaiming a Christian Vision.
