Creation Is Groaning

If, as some scholars attest, Christianity has been complicit in the destruction of the environment, then Christianity can and must also have a role in changing human behavior in a way that helps to solve this massive problem. In Creation is Groaning, a set of highly regarded theologians and Scripture scholars offer a theology and spirituality of creation based on principles of eco-justice and environmental responsibility. Contributors to this volume are Denis Edwards, Antoinette Collins, Dermot Nestor, Laurie Woods, Mary Coloe, and Anthony Kelly. Key elements of their project include: * tracing the development of Israel's view of creation through different historical situations and key writings, with a particular focus on what ethical responsibilities toward creation emerge from its theology* examining Israel's theology of Sabbath" and its developing understanding of the end time, thus encompassing creation in its origins and its final destiny* considering the cosmic impact of the Jesus event as Paul and John understood it Together, the authors establish a firm foundation for a new ethic that promotes the flourishing of all planetary life and a just global community.

About the Author

Mary L. Coloe, PBVM, is associate professor of theology at Australian Catholic University, specializing in the Gospel of John. Her books include God Dwells with Us: Temple Symbolism in the Fourth Gospel and Dwelling in the Household of God: Johannine Ecclesiology and Spirituality (both from Liturgical Press).


Appealing to ancient and contemporary poets and writers, complemented by the insights of theologians and biblical scholars, Creation Is Groaning captures the wonder, beauty, and suffering of creation and invites readers to enter deeply into the heart of God, the heart of Christ, and the heart of the entire cosmos. The theological, Christological, biblical, ethical, and ecological links made throughout this edited volume create a rich tapestry of thought that challenges basic assumptions and definitions while opening doors to new ways of seeing and living life in a sacred universe. Carol J. Dempsey, OP, University of Portland, Oregon Each new age interprets its religious tradition through lenses that are central to that age. Ecosensitivity is a prominent lens for our age. Within the recent past, various hermeneutical approaches attentive to this lens have developed. This collection of essays produced by six prominent Australian theologians partner ecosensitivity with the theological themes of incarnation and promise. The end product of such creative rethinking is a set of essays that offer new insights into the inherited religious tradition and new challenges for living in the contemporary world. Dianne Bergant, CSA Professor of Old Testament Studies Catholic Theological Union Chicago, Illinois Together, the authors establish a firm foundation for a new ethic that promotes the flourishing of all planetary life and a just global community.
