Pandemonium Tremendum

Chaos and Mystery in the Life of God
  • By James E. Huchingson
James E. Huchingson takes computer and information science seriously in this constructive theology. Central to his reflection is an understanding of the primordial chaos--Pandemonium Tremendum--not as destructive, but as the source out of which God creates, sustains, and empowers creatures to become co-creators. ""James Huchingson takes theological measure of the computer revolution, information science, and complexity science, and sketches how God can be understood in the midst of it all. He dazzles us with his command of the details, challenges us with his insistence on a metaphysical approach, and enriches our thinking about God. Pandemonium Tremendum is both a splendid teaching text and also a resource for scholarly work on the cutting edge of constructive theology."" --Philip Hefner, Zygon: Journal of Religion and Science ""If our thoughts about the divine cannot remain the same after Darwin or Einstein, neither can they fail to be framed anew after Claude Shannon and others who have taught us the new sciences of information and communication. James Huchingson ingeniously demonstrates how insights of the great theologians, mystics, and religious thinkers . . . can be given fresh expression in the concepts associated with information. This excellent, clearly written, well-organized theological metaphysics is rich enough to provoke considerable fruitful discussion among theologians and others, especially those involved in contemporary conversations in science and religion."" --John F. Haught, Center for the Study of Science and Religion, Georgetown University James E. Huchingson is Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Florida International University, Miami; the author of Religion and the Natural Sciences: The Range of Engagement and numerous articles on science and religion; and a former researcher for NASA.
