Ecology at the Heart of Faith

Denis Edwards
| Funded by LSRI-UND-GEJP | Orbis Books, 2006 | Reading level: Entry


Edwards argues that the heart of faith can be found in the ecological communion that pervades all life in the cosmos. Writing from a Catholic perspective, he aims not to bypass central theological claims of the Christian faith, but to deepen them by arguing that the Christian heritage is profoundly connected to creation

About (From the publisher)

Beginning with the words, "One of the gifts we have received from the twentieth century is a picture of Earth as our shared home," Denis Edwards helps the general reader, the preacher, the spiritual director, the student and the theologian tear down the walls that too often separate mysticism, theology, prophecy, poetry, and science. In a world born of the "big bang," Edwards shows that humanity and the world are together being made into the image of God. The heart of faith is an ecological communion holds together and grows in love toward the fullness of life imaged in the Resurrection of Jesus.
