At the end of the twentieth century we are coming to understand that the earth is vulnerable, that it is like a tiny garden in space, under threat on all sides. 'Jesus and the Cosmos' is an attempt to think theologically about the ecological crisis we face in the light of the great Christian tradition. Our theological tradition has been shaped within the worldview of a static universe. By contrast, we are told today that the universe began with a cosmic explosion called the Big Bang, that we live in an expanding universe with galaxies rushing away from us at an enormous rate, that we human beings are part of an evolutionary movement on the earth, and that we are intimately linked with the health of delicately balanced life-systems on our planet. Not only has modern science given this age a new cosmology, but contemporary historical studies have provided us with a new approach to the historical Jesus. Critical biblical study has allowed us to know far more about the Jesus who brought joy and liberation into people's lives. In 'Jesus and the Cosmos', Denis Edwards tells the story of the cosmos, the story of Jesus of Nazareth, and shows their connections. Ultimately, he will assert Jesus of Nazareth, risen from the dead, IS the dynamic power at the heart of the cosmic process.

About the Author:

Denis Edwards is a lecturer in Historical and Systematic Theology at Flinders University, Adelaide, Australia.

From Library Journal:

Using the theology of Karl Rahner, Edwards combines both contemporary cosmological perspectives and theological responses to contemporary ecological crisis into a theology. This cosmos is created, sustained, and empowered by God in whom it has its unity. Human persons are the self-consciousness of the cosmos, which reaches its supreme self-transcendence in Jesus who is also God's self-communication to the cosmos. This theology "supports a social ethics which combines care for the Earth with solidarity for the poor of the Earth" and "commits us to seeing economic oppression, sexism and racism as intrinsically inter-related with the violation of our planet." Highly recommended for seminary and academic libraries.
