Product Description

Published for the first time in paperback, this volume offers a new theology of nature based on a Trinitarian understanding of wisdom. Celia Deane-Drummond argues that an exaggerated emphasis on mere information has deprived modern science of its capacity to respond adequately to the moral dilemmas resulting from our increased power over nature. Instead, Deane-Drummond proposes a theology of creation that is in tune with recent developments in biological science, including genetics and ecology, and points to a new ethical approach to developments in biological science. Clearly and accessibly written for those without a science background, Creation Through Wisdom serves as a truly multi-disciplinary study drawing on Christian theology, biological science, feminism, biblical studies, philosophy, ethics, and sociology.
