This book critically explores answers to the big question, What produced our universe around fifteen billion years ago in a Big Bang? It critiques contemporary atheistic cosmologies, including Steady State, Oscillationism, Big Fizz, Big Divide, and Big Accident, that affirm the eternity and self-sufficiency of the universe without God. This study defends and revises Process Theology and arguments for God's existence from the universe's life-supporting order and contingent existence.

"Edwards' scholarship and erudition are really quite impressive ... provides a very helpful overview of the basic alternatives seeking to explain the origination of the big bang, making a reasoned case for creation" in: International Journal for Philosophy of religion 53 (2003) "This is a book that fills a large lacuna in process studies, namely, an examination of contemporary cosmology's theories of origins from a perspective knowledgeable about, and sympathetic to, process thought. This is the first book authored by an avowed process thinker that focuses on the Big Bang and other recent theories of the physical universe's origin. ... [Edwards'] whole book is "must" reading for anyone interested in issues pertaining to the cognitive integration of science and religion, and particularly for those with interests in the integration of science and process theism." in: PROCESS STUDIES 31.2 (2002)
