God in Creation: A New Theology of Creation and the Spirit of God

God in Creation: A New Theology of Creation and the Spirit of God

The title expresses the book's intention: not to go on distinguishing between God and the world, so as then to surrender the world, as godless, to its scientific 'disenchantment' and its technical exploitation by human beings, but instead to discover God in all the beings he has created and to find his life-giving Spirit in the community of creation that they share. This view—which has also been called panentheistic (in contrast to pantheistic)—requires us to bring reverence for the life of every living thing into the adoration of God. And this means expanding the worship and service of God to include service for God's creation.
