Item description for All Creation Is Groaning: An Interdisciplinary Vision for Life in a Sacred Universe (Connections) by Carol J. Dempsey, Russell A. Butkus & Walter Brueggemann...

Overview
This multi-academic perspective on contemporary environmental issues reminds us of our oneness with the natural world and what that calls us to as moral creatures. Fashioned as a series of stories based on the model of biblical narrative, these seemingly multivalent voices and perspectives are joined together with biblical stories, references, and theological reflection to create in All Creation Is Groaning a seamless story that is both provocative and revelatory. All Creation Is Groaning provides a clear vision of living life in a sacred universe. This vision is linked to the biblical vision of justice and righteousness for all of creation, and humankind's responsibility to hasten the vision through a call to ethical practice. Critical and hermeneutical, this book reflects an interdisciplinary approach so as to "build bridges of understanding between the Bible and contemporary disciplines."
