Using the theology of Karl Rahner, Edwards combines both contemporary cosmological perspectives and theological responses to contemporary ecological crisis into a theology. This cosmos is created, sustained, and empowered by God in whom it has its unity. Human persons are the self-consciousness of the cosmos, which reaches its supreme self-transcendence in Jesus who is also God's self-communication to the cosmos. This theology ``supports a social ethics which combines care for the Earth with solidarity for the poor of the Earth'' and ``commits us to seeing economic oppression, sexism and racism as intrinsically inter-related with the violation of our planet.'' Highly recommended for seminary and academic libraries.
