Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus the Wisdom of God: An Ecological Theology?
A much needed focus on cosmic christology. Aug 12, 1999
This is a good book that makes many fine points. I found especially interesting the link between ancient Jewish Wisdom literature and the subsequent developement of New Testament views of the personification of Wisdom in Jesus Christ. Alse good was Edward's pointing out of the importance of respecting Creations' Creator by honoring the Creation, hence an Ecological Theology. It is a fact that much of our Human pollution of the world is a blatant sign of our being sinful/selfish fallen beings. That last line being my own take on the Environmental Crisis. I recommend this book.
