Marcia Bjornerud takes the reader on a tour de force of geology that explains how the contemporary earth sciences help with what religiously inclined readers might call the task of theological anthropology: a consideration of the world beyond humans, the world with humans, and the forces far beyond that shape us all.
The core of Roger Haight's new project is to ask “what science can teach Christian theologians about our own self-understanding” and to offer an answer to Christians who “either do not know how to process their Christian faith in this context or call it into question altogether.”
The book is characteristically careful, methodical and precise—hallmarks of Haight’s writing style and theological methodology. Readers familiar with the development of Catholic theologies of nature and creation will find much to converse with here, as will philosophical theologians.
Mary Robinson argues that “to deal with climate change we must simultaneously address the underlying injustice in our world and work to eradicate poverty, exclusion, and inequality.”
