Item Description...
Overview
Today's world demands an integrated attitude and vision toward all of life-an approach embraced and enhanced by the contributors to Earth, Wind, and Fire. In this scholarly and passionate work members of the Feminist Hermeneutics Task Force of the Catholic Biblical Association orchestrate an approach to understanding a feminist model of creation that is faithful to biblical tradition and celebrates the rich diversity of all creation. Inviting conversation between Bible and theology, feminist scholars and theologians, the contributing writers explore themes such as the significance of embodiment, the integrity of creation, the interconnectedness of humanity with other creatures, the evolutionary nature of creation, and integral connections between creation and salvation, ecojustice and human liberation. Both detailed and holistic, Earth, Wind, and Fire is a compelling, insightful, and reader-friendly approach to the creative artistry of God.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An impressive body of academic and theologic work  Mar 13, 2005
Assembled, compiled, organized and co-edited by Carol J. Dempsey (an instructor in Biblical Studies and Theology, University of Portland) and Mary Margaret Pazdan (Professor of New Testament, Aquinas Institute of Theology, St. Louis), Earth, Wind, & Fire: Biblical And Theological Perspectives On Creation consists of twelve papers by experts in their fields that together provide the reader with a compelling dialogue between feminist exegetes and theologians on the subject of creation. Common themes running through these diverse contributions concerning distinct texts in the Jewish and Christian Scriptures celebrate the biblical traditions of creation inclusive of plants, animals, non-human and human life, as well as the male and female genders. An impressive body of academic and theologic work, Earth, Wind, & Fire is a testament to the creative artistry of God within the Judeo/Christian tradition, and highly recommended reading for both seminary students and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the Genesis story of creation as interpreted and reference in both the Old and New Testaments.
