The universe

This afternoon I'd run out of books, and started wandering through my shelves, lighting on Nancey Murphy and George Ellis's "On the moral nature of the Universe", written 22 years ago (1996). I had known George Ellis well and, probably, I had then read (or scanned) a fair amount of the book .
Now, however, it seems a very dry and mechanical approach to God and the universe (George and I were both physicists!). Now I feel the irreducible isness of the universe, from it's initial "flaring forth" to the multitudes of its consequences, as something that in its depth is felt, not calculable.
