Item description for Creation, Grace, and Redemption (Theology in Global Perspective) by Neil Ormerod...

'A true integration of the old and the new-yielding creative insights into both contemporary life and traditional theological questions. A must for any theologically informed lay person or scholar-not for the reference shelf but for the nightstand!' -Cynthia S. W. Crysdale. The book provides a solid introduction to the themes of creation, grace, and redemption, integrating classical and modern theological resources with perspectives from science, cultural studies, and interfaith dialogue. From the Big Bang to cosmic consummation, from birth to death, the big questions of life emerge. Where does human existence stand in a cosmos some fifteen billion years old and seemingly indifferent to human suffering? This book explores Christian responses to these questions in an accessible style perfectly adapted to classroom use.

Reviews - What do customers think about Creation, Grace, and Redemption (Theology in Global Perspective)?

Must read theology book  Nov 7, 2008
As a theology teacher, this text is one that i highly recommend to my students. Ormerod is a renowned Catholic scholar, whose systematic expertise is grounded in the philosophical and methodological horizons of Bernard Lonergan. While some of Neil's work is, therefore, difficult, he is also capable of explaining complex matters in a way that is readily accessible to the undergraduate student.

The book is not only for Catholics, but will be accessible ecumenically (i teach in a pentecostal school). Tracing the logic of Christian narrative (creation, fall, redemption), Ormerod draws on the theological heritage of the church and develops an understanding of the tradition in the light of contemporary developments in philosophy and science. Thus, for example, he begins by revisioning the churches ancient doctrine of creation in the light of the insights of contemporary science. Likewise, he re-appropriates the ancient doctrine of original sin - describing the universal reality of human life in terms of victim/victimiser. Readers will especially enjoy his rethinking of the metaphors of the atonement, as well as his very personal discussion of the idea of forgiveness - and the problem of simplistic demands that victims forgive their abusers.

All in all, a must read book
