A Faith Encompassing All Creation

Addressing Commonly Asked Questions about Christian Care for the Environment
  • By Tripp York, Andy Alexis-Baker
  • Foreword by Bill McKibben
$16.79
($23.00)
""Care for creation has become marginalized in conversations concerning the quest for justice; nevertheless, our very lives depend on . . . respecting the earth. It is no accident that those most likely to be disenfranchised are those who depend the most on the earth for its survival. Hence, A Faith Encompassing All Creation is a crucial addition to the justice discourse. By gathering diverse voices, the reader is led to explore this crucial issue. Our only hope is that such elucidation leads to praxis."" --Miguel de la Torre, Iliff School of Theology, Denver, Colorado ""This book gets our attention. It is prophetic. For those of us who have been soothed into 'let's be nice to creation' this is an altar call to conversion to a radical and responsible life. We must repent, not simply because all creation calls out to us but because God calls."" --Kyle Childress, Austin Heights Baptist Church, Nacogdoches, Texas ""What could be more important for Christians today than to read A Faith Encompassing All Creation? We are in desperate need of a vision of Christian faith that can inspire commitment and action to save the biodiversity of our planet. This book brings together a vibrant diversity of voices, men and women, young and old, from various Christian traditions, all committed to love for the Earth and all its creatures as God's good creation."" --Denis Edwards, Australian Catholic University Tripp York teaches in the Department of Religion at Virginia Wesleyan College. He is the author or editor of more than half a dozen books, including Third Way Allegiance, Living on Hope While Living in Babylon, and The Devil Wears Nada. Andy Alexis-Baker is a PhD candidate in Systematic Theology and Theological Ethics at Marquette University. He is coeditor of Theology of Missions, by John Howard Yoder.
