Product Description

Materialism. Greed. Loneliness. A manic pace. Abuse of the natural world. Inequality. Injustice. War. The endemic problems facing America today are staggering. We need change and restoration. But where to begin?

In Shalom and the Community of Creation Randy Woodley offers an answer: learn more about the Native American 'Harmony Way,' a concept that closely parallels biblical shalom. Doing so can bring reconciliation between Euro-Westerners and indigenous peoples, a new connectedness with the Creator and creation, an end to imperial warfare, the ability to live in the moment, justice, restoration -- and a more biblically authentic spirituality. Rooted in redemptive correction, this book calls for true partnership through the co-creation of new theological systems that foster wholeness and peace.

Endorsements

So many books simply rehash the same things. But this one by Randy Woodley offers so much that is fresh and unique--and forgotten and under-appreciated too. I wish that every thoughtful Christian on the continent would read this wise and well-written book...Enthusiastically recommended!
-Brian McLaren

Shalom and the Community of Creation is like a breath of fresh air...Woodley's innovative Native American, biblical approach is bound to provoke and awaken the environmental consciousness that is so vitally needed in today's world.
-Celia Deane-Drummond,
University of Notre Dame

Woodley precisely describes the lethal social situation we have created for ourselves--and then he exposits an alternative way for an abundant life... This book shows that there are intellectual, moral resources available for redirecting our political-economic imagination.
-Walter Brueggemann
Columbia Theological Seminary

An essential corrective for today's church. We will be wiser and live as more faithful disciples if we come to see how far today's technological society has journeyed from the biblical shalom vision--a vision that speaks directly to today's ecological dysfunctions and looming disasters.
-Howard A. Snyder
Tyndale Seminary, Toronto

A beautiful and timely meditation on shalom...Through personal story and rigorous scholarship, Woodley paints a picture of a holistic way of living, a way that nurtures connection, hope, and harmony. But the greatest gift to us here is the invitation to view Scripture, humanity, and all creation through his particular indigenous lens. We would do well to catch this vision of creation care for the sake of the next seven generations.
-Matthew Sleeth
Executive Director, Blessed Earth
