Overview

Jürgen Moltmann implores readers to stop distinguishing between God and the world, and to stop surrendering the world to scientific “disenchantment” and technical exploitation by human beings. He asks them to instead discover God in creation and find God’s life-giving Spirit in the community of creation. This view—which has also been called panentheistic (in contrast to pantheistic)—requires us to offer 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.
