A Thematic Compilation

  The Thematic Compilations are collections of essays on a specified topic drawn from Avi Sion's  past works.




Theology is about God and Creation, or more precisely perhaps about our ideas of them, how they are formed and somewhat justified, although it is stressed that they can be neither proved nor disproved.
