This article stems from a conviction that while the development of a theistic view of the mathematical sciences is a laudable goal and much to be encouraged, it is incumbent upon us to explore every avenue that might lead to a distinctively Christian perspective. This leads naturally to a consideration of the unique role played by Christ in Creation, and a convenient framework is provided by seeing Christ as Mediator of Creation. We shall discuss the term itself, examine the biblical passages that seem to present the concept, consider the ways these passages have been understood by theologians, and offer some suggestions for applying the concept to achieve a better understanding of the relationship between our discipline and our faith.
