Publisher's Description

The natural world around us is in crisis. We know it has a dynamic, evolutionary character. How might we understand this world in relationship to God?

Partaking of God builds on the foundations of the dynamic trinitarian theology of Athanasius. It develops into a theology of the Word as the divine Attractor and the Spirit as the Energy of Love in evolutionary emergence. Then it explores God’s suffering with creatures, the humility of God in creation, church teaching on the human soul in relation to neuroscience, and grace and original sin in relationship to evolution. It culminates in a Christian theology of ecological conversion.

Editorial Reviews

"Written in clear, careful prose, this book makes an important contribution to the growing field of theology of nature. Bringing the wisdom of the early church theologian Athanasius into dialogue with recent evolutionary science, it opens new possibilities for Christian thought and practice. Besides the sharp insights on offer, Edwards’s own magnanimous vision moves the heart. The book is a gift, a beautiful theology of the world centered on the energizing presence of the triune God."

            Elizabeth Johnson,  Fordham University


Denis Edwards has written prolifically in the areas of ecology and pneumatology. Partaking of God addresses questions concerning the evolution and ecology in the light of the theology of Athanasius of Alexandria. The book is written in a graceful, poetic style. Edwards explains complex ideas clearly and his insights are well worth both critical reflection and prayer.
