Creation's diversity: voices from theology and science
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.
