Perichoresis and Process: The Eco-Theologies of Jürgen Moltmann and John Cobb

ByAustin Roberts

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
How might Christian theology respond to the ecological crisis in the 21st century? What is the ecological significance of the doctrines of God, Christ, & eschatology? If God's creation is indeed good as the tradition has always claimed to affirm, how can its value be grounded in a way that evokes an unwavering sense of ecological responsibility in Christians? Two of the most influential Protestant theologians of the last few decades, Jürgen Moltmann & John Cobb have both written extensively on these questions. Through a critical reading of each of their major writings on ecological theology, looking especially at their panentheistic doctrines of God and relational ontologies, Roberts argues for a constructive theology that draws on each of their most important insights. Can such an eco-theology be articulated in a way that is plausible to contemporary believers but also faithful to traditional theological intuitions? "Perichoresis and Process" is an attempt to answer this question in the affirmative.
