Item Description...
An engaging meditation on how the fullness of being Christian entails an embrace of creation, becuase care for Earth is at the heart of the life of faith.

Publishers Description
Beginning with the words, "One of the gifts we have received from the twentieth century is a picture of Earth as our shared home," Denis Edwards helps the general reader, the preacher, the spiritual director, the student and the theologian tear down the walls that too often separate mysticism, theology, prophecy, poetry, and science. In a world born of the "big bang," Edwards shows that humanity and the world are together being made into the image of God. The heart of faith is an ecological communion holds together and grows in love toward the fullness of life imaged in the Resurrection of Jesus.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Ecological Theology  Jan 8, 2007
In his latest book, Edwards offers "a partial sketch of how ecological conversion can find inspiration from within the traditions of Christian faith."

Based on the God-centered (not human-centered) teaching of the bible, he explores an ecological theology that honors and respects all creatures. Today, he suggests, many Christians accept care of creation as God's will, yet fail to see their actions as discipleship with Jesus. Jesus knew God was involved with every sparrow that falls to the ground, Edwards reminds us. Connecting the living memory of Jesus with the issues that confront the global community is essential if ecological action is to be seen "not only as ethically responsible but also as radically Christian."

He shares his vision of actions and attitudes that could result from a widespread conversion to this radical Christianity, carried out in all aspects of daily life as well as through public witness by the church. Among other changes, he sees a critical challenge to current economic and political practices and acceptance of the reality that resources of earth are finite and "current Western consumption patterns...bring death and destruction to other species in our planetary community life." Other topics Edwards addresses include writings on the future of the world by theologians Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and Karl Rahner and an ecological theology of the Eucharist.

This timely, clearly written resource, with its strong summary chapter, extensive notes, and detailed index, is ideal for those wishing to further their understanding of the ecological icrisis facing our world and ways that we can make a difference today. The entire work or specific chapters could be used by families, small groups, or educators.
