:John and Charles Wesley often use the New Testament language of 'renewal in God's image,' and sometimes 'renewal in love,' to describe the life of Christian holiness. In Renewal in Love, theologian Michael Lodahl and biologist April Maskiewicz explore the implications of the idea of renewal in the image of God when it is planted deeply in the soil of Genesis 1.Our renewal in the image of God occurs through the incarnation, crucifixion, and resurrection of Christ our Lord. But too often the redemption freely given through Jesus is not connected, either in our thinking or our doing, to the doctrine of creation. The argument of this volume is that Christian holiness, rightly understood, is a renewal and deepening of God's calling upon human beings to care for the Creator's beloved creation.
