This series reflects the role that the branch of Christian philosophy called `Reformational' philosophy plays in the discussion on the status of laws of nature. Ever since its inception, almost a century ago, the concepts of order and law (principle, structure) have been at the heart of this philosophy. One way to characterise this tradition is as a philosophy of creation order. Firmly rejecting both scholastic metaphysics and Deism, Reformational philosophers have maintained the notion of law as `holding' for reality. Questions have arisen about the nature of such law: is it a religious or philosophical concept; does law just mean `orderliness'? How does it relate to laws of nature? Have they always existed or do they `emerge' during the process of evolution?
