Reseña del editor:

The doctrine of creation has often been neglected in Christian theology. Distinguished evangelical theologian Jonathan Wilson exposes what has been missing in current theological discourse and offers an original, constructive work on this doctrine.

The book unites creation and redemption, showing the significance of God's work of creation for understanding the good news of redemption in Jesus Christ. Wilson develops a trinitarian account of the life of the world and sets forth how to live wisely, hopefully, peaceably, joyfully, and generously in that world. He also shows how a mature doctrine of creation can help the church think practically about contemporary issues, including creation care, sexuality, technology, food and water, and more.


Creation, Redemption, and the Life of the World

"A very important book. By pointing out how a robust doctrine of creation has been missing, Jonathan Wilson shows why evangelical engagement with our world is so feeble. He then lays the foundation for a much richer life by showing the necessary connections between redemption and creation. Most important, he shows how we can build on that trinitarian foundation--in our attitudes toward the body, 'consuming,' the internet, business, and much more--all in the light of transformed worship. All Christians should read this book."
--Loren Wilkinson, Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia

"In the current discussions concerning the biblical doctrine of creation, we often bypass what is most important to us as Christians as we debate issues like the age of the earth or the length of the creation days. Jonathan Wilson corrects this oversight as he masterfully guides us to a rich appreciation of God as our Creator and Redeemer."
--Tremper Longman III, Westmont College

"[A] beautifully organized and winsomely written book. From the opening chapters on how the doctrine of creation has gone 'missing' in church, through the bracing central chapters on doctrine and Scripture, all the way to the moving meditation on bodies near the end, this volume captivates, instructs, challenges, and delights. It will become the standard text on creation for years to come."
--Douglas Harink, King's University College, Edmonton

"This book should be mandatory reading for pastors, theological students, and believers who care about the burning moral issues of our day and want to rethink them theologically."
--Brian Brock, King's College, University of Aberdeen

"Allowing trinitarian creation and redemption in Jesus Christ to cast mutual light on each other, God's Good World is a mature, robust work."
--Philip Rolnick, professor of theology, University of St. Thomas

"A major contribution to the growing literature on a doctrine that has been sadly neglected until recently. Anyone who wants to discover the rich resource that Christian theology provides both the church and our world as we face the acute environmental challenges will be grateful for this timely book."
--Peter Harris, founder, A Rocha
