In Healing All Creation, a religion journalist and a scripture scholar explore the literary and theological symmetries of Genesis, the Gospel of Mark and the ongoing story of evolution.

Authors Joan Connell and Adam Bartholomew shed new light on Judeo-Christian scripture and our current moral and environmental crises.
Healing All Creation suggests that spiritual fulfillment is realized not in a distant heaven but in the flawed and fragile Paradise of the present, and that individual acts of compassion can heal a wounded world.

Recenzijas

Taking a "cosmological" and inclusive view of Christian scripture, Connell, journalism and media ethics professor at Western Washington University, and Bartholomew, New Testament professor at Gonzaga University, offer an insightful reinterpretation of Genesis and the gospel of Mark, one that elevates the duty to preserve nature and promote nonviolence. The authors contend that Mark's gospel makes repeated allusions (which his original audience would have recognized) to the Genesis account of Adam and Eve's banishment from Eden to focus readers on the importance of free will. They then argue that Jesus in Mark should be viewed as a model for how to use God's gift of free will to resist the temptation toward violent behavior and instead engage in compassionate, nonviolent acts. Incorporating insights from scientists including Edward Lorenz and Stephen Jay Gould-whose theories of "the butterfly effect" and "the great asymmetry" reinforce the authors' points about the interconnected nature of all things-and theologians such as Dorothy Day, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, and Abraham Heschel, Bartholomew and Connell argue that each "personal decision to promote healing and reconciliation" can have significant positive impact for the universe. This powerful argument that scriptural stories and modern science can work together to redress the crises facing the planet will provide readers of any faith a radical vision of hope for the future. * Publishers Weekly * This profound and challenging book radically reframes our understanding of the book of Genesis and the Gospel of Mark. Beautifully written, it offers a vision of a future where acts of compassion can transform a bruised and broken world. In its deeply researched retelling, the authors also make the case that misogyny was mistakenly woven into scriptures over the years, uncovering the radical message of gender equality that inspired the early Christian church. -- Celia Viggo Wexler, author of Catholic Women Confront Their Church: Stories of Hurt and Hope Rethinking scripture must happen if we are to turn around our planetary and interpersonal failings. This highly informed yet accessible book helps both the scholar and layperson get there. -- Ira Rifkin, author of Spiritual Perspectives on Globalization: Making Sense of Economic and Cultural Upheaval Healing All Creation is a valuable contribution to the growing literature in cosmological theology. As the authors demonstrate, the context of an evolutionary story changes the nature of Biblical stories in new and creative ways. -- Mary Evelyn Tucker, Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology Healing All Creation rereads the creation myths of Genesis and Mark's account of Jesus's healing ministry in light of the new cosmology of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Thomas Berry, and others and in the face of our planet's pending environmental disaster and humanity's calling to tend and care for all creation. In doing so, this accessible and transformative book reminds us of the power of stories to ground and fuel a cosmology enabling believers to see and heal the world that is their neighbor and vocation. -- Patrick McCormick, Gonzaga University Connell and Bartholomew rightly recognize that Jesus' inauguration of the Kingdom of God encompassed the restoration of all creation-fostering the harmony of nature, the end of domination, and the reversal of violence. Their reflections on the Gospel of Mark, on the leading figures of the last century who championed these issues, and on the current scientific work about the evolutionary emergence of compassion all make for informative and inspirational reading. I commend it to all who want to see hope for healing in our common human journey. -- David M. Rhoads, Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago
