Recently a book by Tyler R. Wittman was published, entitled God and Creation in the Theology of Thomas Aquinas and Karl Barth (Cambridge University Press 2018; excerpts from the book may be also found at Google Books). This work juxtaposes ways of understanding the relation between God and creation according to Aquinas and Barth. However, the issues undertaken are much broader, since, as the author observes:
the intelligibility of God’s relation to creation depends on materially prior teaching about God’s fullness in himself such that questions about God’s relation to creation are bound up with questions about divine act and being. That is to say, the question about God’s distinction from creation is first and foremost a question about God’s perfection and not about the relation between God and creation as such (from the „Introduction”).
Tyler R. Wittman is a professor of theology at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. His research interests include mainly the intersections between the classical and modern theology. At his Academia.edu profile you may find some of his papers, including those on Aquinas’s theology:
„Not a God of Confusion but of Peace”: Aquinas and the Meaning of Divine Simplicity (published at: „Modern Theology” no. 32/2 , p. 151-169);
The Logic of Divine Blessedness and the Salvific Teleology of Christ (published at: „International Journal of Systematic Theology” no. 18/2 , p. 132-153);
It is worth to remind that a few years ago another book juxtaposing Aquinas’s and Barth’s theology was published: Thomas Aquinas and Karl Barth: An Unofficial Catholic-Protestant Dialogue (Eerdmans 2013), edited by Bruce L. McCormack and Thomas Joseph White OP.
