Foregrounding the Environment

The Redemption of Nature and Jurgen Moltmann's Theology


  • Dee Carter



Moltmann, soteriology


It goes without saying that there has been recently a proliferation of ecotheological publishing; indeed ‘the river of theological writing in this area has now turned into a flood’. Beyond the fact that there is a general concern for the environment, generalizations about this deluge are not easy to make. There are typologies that offer helpful categories, albeit categories of approximate fit; however these classi-fications vary according to different departure points. But what can be claimed is that most ecotheology does not pay sustained attention to the central Christian doctrine of soteriology.
