About "Ecology in Jurgen Moltmann's Theology"
This book offers a critical and constructive analysis of the contribution of Jurgen Moltmann to the field of ecotheology. Moltmann is one of the foremost and influential contemporary theologians of our time, but his specific contribution to ecotheology has received relatively scant attention in the secondary literature. The author deals sensitively with the relevant scientific aspects necessary in order to develop an adequate theology of the natural world. She also offers a careful and constructive analysis of the specific systematic theologies of creation, humanity, eschatology, and Trinity that are woven into Moltmann's rich interpretation of the relationship between God and creation. ""This new edition of Celia Deane-Drummond's study of Jurgen Moltmann's path-breaking contribution to ecotheology serves as a fitting tribute to Moltmann on his ninetieth anniversary."" --Ernst M. Conradie, University of the Western Cape ""Celia Deane-Drummond has emerged as a world leader in both ecological theology and in the broader engagement between science and theology of the early twenty-first century. It is fascinating and wonderfully instructive to see the way she engages critically with the ecological vision of Jurgen Moltmann, one of the great systematic theologians of the twentieth century, and a true pioneer among major theologians in his engagement with the ecological."" --Denis Edwards, Professor, Institute for Religion and Critical Inquiry, Faculty of Theology and Philosophy, Australian Catholic University, Adelaide Campus ""In this updated edition of her book, Deane-Drummond masterfully illustrates the ecological turn in Moltmann's work and situates his ecological doctrine of creation within contemporary theologies of creation. This book brilliantly charts the course for a systematic eco-theology for our own time by putting Moltmann's contribution in constructive conversation with contemporary environmental and biological science."" --Hilda P. Koster, Associate Professor of Religion, Concordia College, Moorhead, MN ""This book is an indispensable read for those interested in the foundations of Jurgen Moltmann's ecotheology. Celia Deane-Drummond ... provides a solid and discerning examination of the doctrinal elements within Moltmann'sGod in Creation, with a view to the ecological orientation and implications."" --Heather Eaton, Full Professor of Conflict Studies, Saint Paul University, Ottawa ""In another impressive contribution to the developing genre of ecotheology, Celia Deane-Drummond insightfully probes German theologian Jurgen Moltmann's extensive body of works for ecological motifs that have emerged, skillfully provides a systematic treatment of these motifs informed by broad biological findings, and finds highly promising his thinking about the interconnection of God, humans, and the world that can be helpful toward functioning in our common home--Earth."" --Jame Schaefer, Associate Professor of Systematic Theology and Ethics, Marquette University Celia E. Deane-Drummond is Professor of Theology and Director of the Center for Theology, Science and Human Flourishing at the University of Notre Dame. She is author of numerous books, including Ecotheology (2008), and editor of Religion and Ecology in the Public Sphere (2011), Animals as Religious Subjects (2011), and Technofutures, Nature and the Sacred (2015)."
