Ecology in JÜrgen Moltmann's Theology
|Author: ||Deane-Drummond, Celia|
This scholarly study is set in the context of theological debates about the place of humanity in the natural world, and examines the way Moltmann has responded to the particular demands of the ecological crisis and the increasing tension among science, technology and religion. It discusses the way he links his understanding of the social Trinity with ecological motifs as a basis for his pantheistic approach to the doctrine of creation and retained an eschatological dimension and Christological heart to his theology. It also explores his dialogue with feminist, Orthodox, Barthian, and Process approaches. Through the complex tapestry of his writings, it shows how his work is of contemporary significance, particularly valuable for students of Moltmann, creation theology, and those interested in the interaction between science and faith.
