Description: In this fresh creative approach to theology, Johnson asks how we can understand cosmic redemption in a time of advancing ecological devastation. In effect, how can we extend the core Christian belief in salvation to include all created beings? Immediately this question runs into a formidable obstacle: the idea that Jesus's death on the cross was required as atonement for human sin, a theology laid out by St. Anselm. Constructing her argument in the form of a dialogue, Johnson lays out the foundations in scripture, the teachings of Jesus, and the early Church to emphasise the love and mercy of God, showing how this approach can help us respond to a planet in peril.
