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.
