About this title

Synopsis:

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. 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 some reflections on ethical and theological considerations regarding the idea that we ought to sustain diversity.
