The title expresses the book's intention: not to go on distinguishing between God and the world, so as then to surrender the world, as godless, to its scientific 'disenchantment' and its technical exploitation by human beings, but instead to discover God in all created beings and to find God's life-giving Spirit in the community of creation that they share. This view—which has also been called panentheistic (in contrast to pantheistic)—requires us to bring reverence for the life of every living thing into the adoration of God. And this means expanding the worship and service of God to include service for God's creation.
"Perhaps the most comprehensive treatment of the theology of creation. Any thoughtful reader will find here a wealth of stimulating and provocative ideas. In the best Socratic tradition, the book raises many more questions than it answers, and it challenges other theologians to enter the same field. We ho[pe many will respond."--Living Church
