Creation and Salvation

Volume 1: A Mosaic of Selected Classic Christian Theologies

Edited by: Ernst M. Conradie

Christian activists are working with others to "save the planet," and many may consider theological reflection on such an earth-keeping praxis as relating "creation" with "salvation." However, to do justice to both themes is not easy. This book explores the ways in which selected classic Christian theologies have grappled with this problem. The collection includes essays on: Irenaeus * Athanasius * Gregory of Nazianz * Augustine * Maximus the Confessor * Medieval female mystics * the Franciscan tradition * Thomas Aquinas * Martin Luther * John Calvin.
