If, as some scholars attest, Christianity has been complicit in the destruction of the environment, then Christianity can and must also have a role in changing human behavior in a way that helps to solve this massive problem. In Creation Is Groaning, a set of highly regarded theologians and Scripture scholars offer a theology and spirituality of creation based on principles of eco-justice and environmental responsibility.

Contributors to this volume are Denis Edwards, Antoinette Collins, Dermot Nestor, Laurie Woods, Mary Coloe, and Anthony Kelly. Key elements of their project include:

tracing the development of Israel's view of creation through different historical situations and key writings, with a particular focus on what ethical responsibilities toward creation emerge from its theology
examining Israel's theology of "Sabbath" and its developing understanding of the end time, thus encompassing creation in its origins and its final destiny
considering the cosmic impact of the Jesus event as Paul and John understood it
Together, the authors establish a firm foundation for a new ethic that promotes the flourishing of all planetary life and a just global community.
