Item Description...
Overview
"This work is intended as a resource for undergraduates, theological students, and general readers who are interested in matters of ethics and theodicy. The author's starting point is that creation, divine or human, involves ethical resonsibility. If there is a God who made the universe, God is resonsible for what the universe is like. What right had God to create a world like this, full of troubles as well as glories? Is it ethical to worship the Creator? These questions, and the belief that human beings are created for God's good purpose, lead straight to an examination of the problem of evil. As Oppenheimer sees it, theodicies generally over-reach themselves. A more modest approach is to consider what we mean by calling any creation good, human or divine, in the hope that human and divine creation may shed light on one another. The value of creation is recognised in the kind of love which strives to bring something satisfying and maybe wonderful into existence, sometimes at great cost: the best may, at last, emerge fr

Publishers Description
This book, by one of Britain's best known and most distinguished writers on Christian ethics, is intended as a resource for undergraduates. theological students, and general readers who are interested in matters of ethics and theodicy. The author's starting-point is that creation, divine or human, involves ethical responsibility. If there is a God who made the universe, God is responsible for what the universe is like. What right had God to create a world like this, full of troubles as well as glories? Is it ethical to worship the Creator? These questions, and the belief that human beings are created for God's good purpose. lead straight to an examination of the problem of evil. As Helen Oppenheimer sees it, theodicies generally over-reach themselves. A more modest approach is to consider what we can mean by calling any creation good, human or divine. in the hope that human and divine creation may shed light on one another. The value of creation is recognised in the kind of love which strives to bring something satisFying and maybe wonderful into existence, sometimes at great cost: the best may, at last, emerge from the worst. A consideration of the paradox of tragedy deveops a notion of things 'having come right' and of 'making good'. which draws together ideas of human and divine creation, and which includes, but also transcends, moral value. Helen Oppenheimer is a former President of the Society tbr the Study of Christian Ethics and holds a Lambeth DD.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
God works in creation by making "Good" -not- perfect  Jul 20, 2005
The books encourages you to see God's continual creating and to understand that God made "Good," not perfect. It is as you read her argument and understand that God created "Good" not perfect, that you can accept that God is a creating God. This book is great at widening one's perspective by taking the Judeo/Christian story as a whole. Oppenhiemer sees God at work in all, and sees this creativity and creation both before and after Jesus. Rather than focusing solely on Jesus and his role in creation as the logos, she also looks at God's role and the Spirit's role. It is a view that takes into account the working of the Trinity as a whole, rather than just focusing on the work of Jesus. In this respect she helps to broaden your perspective by helping you see the role of the other members of the Trinity, not just Jesus' role. She puts up a credible argument for God being an active creating God, rather than the Judeo/Christian God being a God who has only acted in creation once through Jesus. I would consider this book essential reading of you want to start on the journey of accepting that God is a creating God.
