Physicist and theologian Willem Drees reviews and criticizes the religious responses to the Big Bang, showing that attempts by theologians to appropriate this scientific theory neglect many difficulties. He examines the various quantum cosmologies in relation to the Beginning, the anthropic principles, the search for "complete" theories, and conceptions of contingency and necessity.

Beyond the Big Bang gives a reliable and easily understood account of modern physical theories of the nature of the universe and contemporary developments in theology.
