Here is the link to the first chapter proper of my book on the goodness of creation.
To begin to appreciate what the Bible really teaches about the natural creation, after the Fall of man, one needs not proof texts but the general presentation of God’s relationship to what we call “nature” in the Bible, which is what I attempt in this chapter.
Scientists will note that I read a very hands-on version of God’s involvement out of the texts, and that I make no attempt to justify it scientifically in relation to natural laws, and so on. That is simply because the brief of the chapter (and of the book, come to that) is the the continued obedience of Creation to its Creator, not the mechanics of how God does it.
Nevertheless, old readers will know that that has been addressed in many places on this blog in pieces on providence, concurrence and the like (use the search function). What I would stress here is that one can’t separate God’s intimate and detailed control of nature from the biblical text without producing a quite different God from the God of Israel and the God of Jesus Christ (not to mention a different Jesus Christ, for according to the Bible he currently rules nature just as sovereignly as Yahweh is said to in the Hebrew Bible, seated as he is at his right hand).
I would suggest, therefore, that the cavills of many TEs that the question of the degree of God’s control of nature is open to debate or disagreement amongst Christians is true only in the same way as the question of the truthfulness of Scripture about the Person of God. If one is prepared to say the Bible has got things flat wrong, then a Creation either in rebellion against God or in some other way beyond his universal control (“creaturely autonomy” being the common phrase) is an option. But God’s control of nature is so pervasive in Scripture that any higher view of its authority ought to foreclose disagreement on the matter.
