This is a major theological tenent that undergirds the biblical tadition. Insights from contemporary science prompt us to look anew at our understanding of the natural balance within the universe and aat humankind as manifestation of life within that universe. Theology calls us to reexamine the role that worship plays in our acknowledgement of these realities. After a discussion of some scientific principles, the book examines several biblical themes in order to discover how they might help to fashion a liturgical perspective that is faithful to biblical faith and contemporary in its eco-sensitivity.
