For the Love of All Creatures : The Story of Grace in Genesis (Paperback) (William Greenway)
about this item
This innovative, broad-ranging book by William Greenway unfolds a biblical spirituality centering on love for all creation and all creatures. Greenway rereads the creation and flood narratives in Genesis from an overtly creature-loving perspective that not only inspires care for creation and its creatures but also reveals sophisticated understandings of faith, grace, and evil vital for twenty-first-century spirituality.Comparing the ancient Israelite cosmology of Genesis with the ancient Babylonian cosmology of theEnuma Elish and with the modern Darwinian cosmology of Thomas Hobbess Leviathan, Greenway shows how Genesis extends far beyond those cosmologies in its discernment of the transcending, gracious love of God. Standing at the intersection of animal rights, green biblical studies, and philosophical theology, Greenways For the Love of All Creatures is a groundbreaking work that will interest and inform a wide range of readers.
