Item Description...
Overview
There has been a growing awareness of the plight of the earth at the hands of human beings over the past several decades. An important theological contribution to this discussion over the past two decades has been the work of Dianne Bergant, C.S.A. She brings first of all a deep concern for the earth and its creatures. As a professor of Hebrew Bible, she also brings the contribution of the Wisdom literature of the Jewish tradition. It is at the intersection of these two resources concern for the earth and the Wisdom literature that much of her work has been done. The Wisdom of Creation, written to honor her, takes up the themes of creation and Wisdom from a variety of perspectives, both biblical and theological, to think along with Bergant about the challenges of caring for the earth and for those who dwell upon it. The work of a theology that will contribute to the care of and the future of the earth is still in many ways in its early stages. Dianne Bergant's own work on themes of wisdom, creation, prayer, and preaching has made a significant contribution to that theology. It is hoped that these essays will continue that important task of making a better world in which the next generation will grow and mature.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wisdom and The Care of Our World  Sep 3, 2005
This book gives very interesting insights by many learned people into how we can use the collective wisdom of our forefathers and the enlightenment of God to better understand and preserve this world in which we live.
 
Presents significant and seminal theological contributions   Sep 12, 2004
Under the careful and collaborative editorship of Edward Foley (Professor of Liturgy and Music, Chair of the Department of Word and Worship, founding Director of the Ecumenical D.Min. Program, Catholic Theological Union) and Robert Schreiter (Vatican II Professor of Theology, Catholic Theological Union), The Wisdom Of Creation presents significant and seminal theological contributions to the effect of humans have had (and continue to have) upon the natural resources and ecosystems of the Earth. The contributions by eleven colleagues and friends of Dianne Bergant, C.S.A., Ph.D. (who as a professor of the Hebrew Bible and the Wisdom literature of the Judaic tradition) comprise an academically impressive and sagely diverse body of perspectives that make for informed and informative reading. The Wisdom Of Creation is especially recommended reading for members of the Christian community who have an abiding interest with respect to theology as relevant to past, present, and future environmental issues.
