Janet Martin Soskice reflects on the topic of creation ex nihilo in her essay, arguing that we must be careful regarding the easy slippage between “creation” and “nature,” since, speaking biblically, “creation” refers to the activity of God and the outcome of that activity rather than to the narrower sense of material nature.
