Product description

Product Description

What does it mean for humans to accept that we are not the centre of life, but continue to worship God in a tradition which has assumed that we are? How do we worship the God of this evolving life? A God who is ancient. Personal but not human. As much female as male. The God who is beyond us, became one with us (and, most Christians claim, one of us), and who remains within and amongst us?

We are not fallen, the Earth is not cursed. So why is it so hard to get babies out, and why are there so many weeds?

We have original needs, not original sin. So why do we sin? How does our new understanding of our brain and its evolution help us answer this, and what do we do about it?

Are we inherently selfish and violent? Is our niceness merely a thin veneer over our brutish insides? Does Jesus win victory over evolution, or call us back into life: this awesome evolving life of which we are a part?

What do we make of the whole story of Easter, seen through the eyes of a God who loves all animals, and never asked for ritual sacrifices of the innocent? What did Jesus make of Easter?

Why are we here? Is there an “after here?”

What might evolution affirming Christians make of sex? Is heterosexual, lifelong marriage the only context in which God blesses sex? What surprises do we find in the Biblical Witnesses themselves?

About the Author

Jason is a half time minister with Uniting Earth Ministry in the NSW/ACT Synod of the Uniting Church in Australia, and a recipient of a Tabitha Grant to extend his exploration of the interplay between evolution and theology. He has started a couple of ecofaith communities as part of his ministry with the Uniting Church, and lives on the edge of a forest in a little house with his family, and many neighbours: including goannas, echidnas, koalas and snakes. Since the kitchen has no walls, bandicoots often visit, followed by the carpet snake who likes to eat them. His PhD explored the connections between evolution, ecology, environmentalism and faith. He has been a uni chaplain, an environment officer in the Qld Uni Student Union, and a researcher for the Queensland Synod bioethics committee, as well as a congregational minister. He has produced a number of zero budget clips on youtube exploring ecology, environment, evolution and faith.
