dc.description With inspiration from post-modern scientific theories (complexity theory, chaos theory, relativity theory, uncertainty theory, no-singularity/boundary theory), and from philosophical understandings of nature (ecstatic naturalism and Taoism), the author offers an innovative reading of the Genesis creation stories, focusing on the concepts of order and chaos. While criticizing the dichotomous dualism that underpins the human ordering system, she connects these rich meanings and wisdom signified by nature with theological discourse through a discussion of the infinity of God, the abjection of origin, the autonomy of creatures, and nature's complex and fluid manifestations.
