Item Description...
The earth is in disharmony. Rain forests are disappearing. The ozone layer is thinning. Greenhouse gases contribute to global warming that threatens to disrupt our climate and way of life.

Woody Bartlett, a theologian and environmentalist, posits a new Christ-centered cosmology founded upon four Dynamics--Being, Belonging, Becoming, and Surprise--to bring the earth into harmony.

Being, Bartlett proffers, is essence. Belonging is the Being's place among other Beings. Becoming is the intent of both Being and Belonging. Surprise is the unexpected unfolding of the intent. Humanity, Bartlett explains, violates the four dynamics, and Jesus is the perfect embodiment of the four Dynamics.

Bartlett's idea, then, can be put this way. If we human beings follow Jesus' example by trusting God completely and absolutely, if we remember that we belong to, and do not own, the earth, if we surrender control to God, and let God surprise us with His intent in ways that we cannot imagine, then we will realize the four Dynamics, and achieve harmony with the earth.


* written in an easygoing style, the book is accessible to the general reader, as well as to adherents of religion and the environment. * includes the principles of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and Thomas Berry, and discussions of the beginnings of the universe, including the big-bang theory, theories of evolution, relativity, quantum mechanics, punctuated equilibria, the great extinctions, and the origins of humanity. * includes appendices and annotated bibliography

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Christian view of evolution  Aug 4, 2003
Woody Bartlett has written an intriguing little book that connects Christian theology with evolution and ecology. It is written in a clear and comprehensible style, dealing with complex topics and opening them up for the lay person. It is anything but preachy. It pleads that we, who are Christians, see ourselves as fellow passengers on an evolving planet with all the other species, and appeals to us to take responsibility as God's agents while we have time. This book explores new territory and should be read by anyone who is concerned about the future of our planet Earth. It is very sound thinking.
