Product Description

Item No. 004645

by Elizabeth Theokritoff

Few realize how ecological the vision of Orthodox Christianity really is. Yet it portrays creation as God's epiphany and the human person as a connecting link between creation and Creator. Christian love is manifest through the right use of material things. To communicate this vision, Elizabeth Theokritoff draws on ancient sources, the Fathers, the liturgy, and saints' lives, on modern commentators, and on practical examples from our lived experience. The thematic arrangement makes it a convenient resource for teachers. It is compelling reading, and demonstrates that environmental concerns have deep roots in Christian tradition.

Elizabeth Theokritoff has produced an in-depth study of the pressing matter of our responsibility toward God's Creation, drawing on Holy Scripture, the teachings of the Church Fathers, and Orthodox liturgical texts. The result is a theological work that is highly relevant, superbly written, and a joy to read. I recommend it most enthusiastically for anyone concerned with the meaning and value of the created world and our place within it. --Fr John Breck, Professor of Biblical Interpretation and Bioethics, St Sergius Theological Institute, Paris, France
