The natural world around us is in crisis. We know it has a dynamic, evolutionary character. How might we understand this world in relationship to God? Partaking of God builds on the foundations of the dynamic trinitarian theology of Athanasius. It develops into a theology of the Word as the divine Attractor and the Spirit as the Energy of Love in evolutionary emergence. Then it explores God’s suffering with creatures, the humility of God in creation, church teaching on the human soul in relation to neuroscience, and grace and original sin in relationship to evolution. It culminates in a Christian theology of ecological conversion.

The threat of ecological collapse is increasingly becoming a reality for the world's populations, both human and nonhuman; addressing this global challenge requires enormous cultural creativity and demands a diversity of perspectives, especially from the humanities. Theology and Ecology Across the Disciplines draws from a variety of academic disciplines and positions in order to explore the role and nature of environmental responsibility, especially where such themes intersect with religious or theological viewpoints. Covering disciplines such as history, philosophy, literature, politics, peace studies, economics, women's studies, and the ecological sciences as well as systematic and moral theology, the contributors emphasize how these positions have begun to develop distinct perspectives on urgent ecological issues, as well as pointing toward specific practices at the local and international level. This volume provides a multidisciplinary point of departure for urgent conversations on environmental responsibility that resist simplistic solutions. Rather, the contributors highlight the complex nature of modern ecology, and suggest creative ways forward in the situation of an apparently intractable global problem.

God is Green

At this time of climate crisis, here is a practical Christian ecospirituality. It emerges from the pastoral and theological experience of Reverend Robert Shore-Goss, who worked with his congregation by making the earth a member of the church, by greening worship, and by helping the church building and operations attain a carbon neutral footprint. Shore-Goss explores an ecospirituality grounded in incarnational compassion. Practicing incarnational compassion means following the lived praxis of Jesus and the commission of the risen Christ as Gardener. Jesus becomes the "green face of God." Restrictive Christian spiritualities that exclude the earth as an original blessing of God must expand. This expansion leads to the realization that the incarnation of Christ has deep roots in the earth and the fleshly or biological tissue of life. This book aims to foster ecological conversation in churches and outlines the following practices for congregations: meditating on nature, inviting sermons on green topics, covenanting with the earth, and retrieving the natural elements of the sacraments. These practices help us recover ourselves as fleshly members of the earth and the network of life. If we fall in love with God's creation, says Shore-Goss, we will fight against climate change.

Sein Leben lang hat Hans Küng der katholischen Kirche gedient (allerdings nicht immer zur Freude der Päpste): als weltweit geachteter Theologe, als Priester und vielgelesener Autor. Jetzt erweist er ihr wieder einen Dienst, indem er klar ausspricht, woran die Kirche krankt. Deren Krise geht weit über die Missbrauchsfälle und deren Vertuschung hinaus: Es handelt sich um eine grundlegende Systemkrise. Eine Kirche, die weiterhin an ihrem Machtund Wahrheitsmonopol, an ihrer Sexual- und Frauenfeindlichkeit festhält, sich Reformen und der aufgeklärten modernen Welt verweigert, wird nicht überleben – das ist Hans Küngs Fazit. Deshalb legt er eine Agenda für ein »Zukunftsgespräch« vor.

Und er nennt gute Gründe für den Glauben.

Participating in God

In this exciting work, Samuel Powell offers a new constructive and systematic vision of creation by interpreting it in terms of contemporary science and trinitarian theology. Powell's work unfolds in three stages, building on the multiple ways the doctrine of creation actually functions for Christians. He first analyzes its regulative dimension. Even in all the multiplicity of historical Christianity, he shows, the doctrine commits Christians to a particular set of normative beliefs about the world and God's relation to it. Second, Powell builds on the doctrine's hermeneutical potential. It allows Christians both to interpret the meaning of creation in terms of other prevalent philosophical, religious, or scientific ideas and also to interpret the world, as disclosed by scientific theory, in theological terms. In the heart of his book, Powell correlates creaturely characteristics with their participation in God through the trinitarian persons. Finally, in light of his findings, Powell drives home the often ignored ethical dimension of the doctrine, especially in relation to the environment, our consumerist lifestyle, and eschatology. Powell's bold proposal harvests from two of the most fruitful fields of recent theology – trinitarian theory and religion-and-science – and crafts a creative new vision of how we and all creation participate in the life and work of the triune God.

This collection of substantial essays explores the question of how to relate environmental engagement in the context of religious convictions. In the first part of the book, 'A Diversity of Visions of Creation', six essays address various views of creation. Contributions range from examination of the relationship between science and ecological theology to directly tackling how we can re-imagine the human-environment relationship via religio-scientific metaphor and myth. In the second part of the book, 'Sustaining Creation's Diversity', the concept of sustainability is analyzed critically, given the dynamic character of natural reality as unveiled by the sciences. This is followed by reflections on ethical and theological considerations regarding the idea that we ought to sustain diversity.
