God in Creation: A New Theology of Creation and the Spirit of God

Enhanced for Logos
Logos Editions are fully connected to your library and Bible study tools.



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.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.

“By the title ‘God in Creation’ I mean God the Holy Spirit. God is ‘the lover of life’ and his Spirit is in all created beings.” (Page xiv)

“When this happens, of course, the concern that motivates cognition changes. We no longer desire to know in order to dominate, or analyse and reduce in order to reconstruct. Our purpose is now to perceive in order to participate, and to enter into the mutual relationships of the living thing.” (Page 3)

“The New Testament testimony about creation is to be found in the resurrection kerygma and in the experience of the Holy Spirit, who is the energy of the new creation. Eschatological christology and pneumatology does in fact involve a fundamentally new interpretation of the divine creative activity.” (Page 65)

“The Christ dying in physical torment on the cross identifies himself with the sick, the tormented, and those who die in torment. That is why they are able to find in him the healing which is fellowship with God, the wellspring of eternal life.” (Page 246)

“It is the affirmative force of God’s self-negation which becomes the creative force in creation and salvation.” (Page 87)
