Christian activists may work with others to „save the planet“. Theological
reflection on such earthkeeping praxis would need to relate „creation“
with „salvation“. However, to do justice to both themes is not easy. This
volume explores the ways in which selected classic Christian theologies
have grappled with this problem. It includes essays by Svein Rise on
Irenaeus, Denis Edwards on Athanasius, Sigurd Bergmann on Gregory of
Nazianz, Scott Dunham on Augustine, Elizabeth Theokritoff on Maximus the
Confessor, Mary Grey on Medieval female mystics, Ilia Delio on the
Franciscan tradition, William French on Thomas Aquinas, Paul Santmire on
Martin Luther and Ernst Conradie on John Calvin. A second volume
addressing perspectives on the same theme from recent theological
movements is currently in progress.

Ernst M. Conradie teaches systematic theology and ethics in the Department
of Religion and Theology at the University of the Western Cape.
