The ethics of nature by Celia Deane-Drummond( Book )
11 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 383 libraries worldwide
"The ethics of nature explores humanity's treatment of the natural world from a Christian perspective. The book presents a range of ethical debates arising from our relationship with nature, including current controversies about the environment, animal rights, biotechnology, consciousness, and cloning. It sets the immediate issues in the context of underlying theological and philosophical assumptions, and draws out broader concerns for social justice. Complex scientific issues are explained in clear and intelligible language. Throughtout the book, the author draws on primary sources from Thomas Aquinas, and develops her own distinctive ethical approach. This demonstrates that a virtue ethic centred on wisdom provides the most appropriate way to approach the ethics of nature. She has held academic posts in both plant science and theology, giving her an ideal vantage point from which to write."--Back cover

Christ and evolution : wonder and wisdom by Celia Deane-Drummond( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 194 libraries worldwide
"The figure of Christ is at the heart of Christian faith and self-understanding, whether conservative or liberal. In this volume, widely acclaimed theologian Celia Deane-Drummond sets out to develop an understanding of Christ that is far more conscious of the evolutionary history of humanity and current evolutionary theories about the natural world. It argues that the concepts of wisdom and wonder have special roles in both theology and science and can point to an integrated, inclusive spirituality and a fuller vision of life and the universe."--Jacket

Ecology in Jürgen Moltmann's theology by Celia Deane-Drummond( Book )
7 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 153 libraries worldwide
This book offers a critical and constructive analysis of the contribution of Jurgen Moltmann to the field of ecotheology. Moltmann is one of the foremost and influential contemporary theologians of our time, but his specific contribution to ecotheology has received relatively scant attention in the secondary literature. The author deals sensitively with the relevant scientific aspects necessary in order to develop an adequate theology of the natural world. She also offers a careful and constructive analysis of the specific systematic theologies of creation, humanity, eschatology, and Trinity t

It is wide-ranging in terms of coverage and accessibly written. It is ideal as a key text in any postgraduate course engaging with the ethics, theology and philosophy of the non-human and the post-human
A handbook in theology and ecology by Celia Deane-Drummond( Book )
8 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and Indonesian and held by 136 libraries worldwide
The premise of this handbook is that all Christian communities have the potential to discover and express environmental concern. It aims to encourage anyone interested in theology and the environment to explore the wealth of material that is within the Christian heritage. Examples of different responses to the ecological crisis are taken from Orthodox, Catholic, Protestant and feminist perspectives. The fundamental question being asked is: How can Christian theology engage with ecological concerns in a way which takes into account recent developments in both theology and environmental issues? While this is a book written from the perspective of Christian theology, the intention is that those from other faith traditions will find it informative and useful as a basis for further collaboration. Each chapter is subdivided into a number of specific issues, with points for discussion highlighted in the text in order to emphasize areas which can be developed further by individual reflection or group work

The result i
Religion and ecology in the public sphere ( Book )
5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 129 libraries worldwide
This collection of essays brings to the surface vital dimensions in the in the engagement between religion and ecology. The authors are aware of both the political urgency, but also the need to delve into a variety of diverse traditions in order to resource such a task, namely, what might religious traditions contribute to ecological debates? A core issue addressed here is how contemporary theology might become public theology, one that is deeply relevant to the particular problems and issues of today. This then raises important theoretical questions about how theology might engage with politics. The diverse methodological approaches possible within Christian theology are represented in this collection, including those drawing on particular traditions such as Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Reformed theology, through to self consciously contextual approaches in liberation, African and feminist discourse
The wisdom of the liminal : evolution and other animals in human becoming by Celia Deane-Drummond( Book )
5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 128 libraries worldwide
A sophisticated theological anthropology that takes into account evolutionary theories and our relationships to other animals In this book Celia Deane-Drummond charts a new direction for theological anthropology in light of what is now known about the evolutionary trajectories of humans and other animals. She presents a case for human beings becoming fully themselves through their encounter with God, after the pattern of Christ, but also through their relationship with each other and with other animals. Drawing on classical sources, particularly the work of Thomas Aquinas, Deane-Drummond explores various facets of humans and other animals in terms of reason, freedom, language, and community. In probing and questioning how human distinctiveness has been defined using philosophical tools, she engages with a range of scientific disciplines including evolutionary biology, biological anthropology, animal behavior, ethology, and cognitive psychology. The result is a novel, deeply nuanced interpretation of what it means to be distinctively human in the image of God. (Publisher)
Wonder and wisdom : conversations in science, spirituality, and theology by Celia Deane-Drummond( Book )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 109 libraries worldwide
Animals as religious subjects : transdisciplinary perspectives ( Book )
9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 101 libraries worldwide
"This book examines one of the most pressing cultural concerns that surfaced in the last decade -- the question of the place and significance of the animal. This collection of essays represents the outcome of various conversations regarding the animal studies and shows multidisciplinarity at its very best, namely, a rigorous approach within one discipline in conversation with others around a common theme. The contributors discuss the most relevant disciplines regarding this conversation, namely: philosophy, anthropology, religious studies, theology, history of religions, archaeology and cultural studies. The first section, Thinking about Animals, explores philosophical, anthropological and religious perspectives, raising general questions about the human perception of animals and its crucial cultural significance. The second section explores the intriguing topic of the way animals have been used historically as religious symbols and in religious rituals. The third section re-examines some Christian theological and biblical approaches to animals in the light of current concerns. The final section extends the implications of traditional views about other animals to more specific ethical theories and practices"--Provided by publisher
Biology and theology today : exploring the boundaries by Celia Deane-Drummond( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 98 libraries worldwide
"Designed as a basic text, for students and non-specialists, in science and religion, this book brings together current advances in both areas in a fruitful dialogue and interchange. Deane-Drummond uses key illustrative examples from contemporary genetic science, ecology and Gaia as a way of probing present practice. She engages readers in theological reflection on recent advances in the biosciences in a way that shows the challenge of modern biological science to theology."--Jacket
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin on people and planet by Celia Deane-Drummond( Book )
7 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in English and held by 73 libraries worldwide
"Humanity's relationship to nature is central to the work of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, an influential priest and scientist of the twentieth century. Teilhard believed that spiritual development must be viewed alongside material development and that evolutionary theory lies at the heart of humanity's understanding of its place in the world. 'Pierre Teilhard de Chardin on People and Planet' argues that Teilhard's cosmic mysticism and intense interest in both cosmological and evolutionary sciences are highly relevant to current debates about how best to construct a meaningful spirituality. The book offers a critical revision of Teilhard's thought in the light of current debates in evolutionary science, eco-theology and environmental ethics. The essays present fresh interpretations of Teilhard's work and point to the significance of his thought in the contemporary study of science and religion."--Provided by publisher

Working from both theoretical and practical contexts by using newly emerging case studies, including geo-engineering and soil carbon technologies, this volume breaks new ground by engaging theological, scientific, philosophical and cultural aspects of the technology/religion/nature
Religion in the Anthropocene by Celia Deane-Drummond( Book )
4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 37 libraries worldwide
This book charts a new direction in humanities scholarship through serious engagement with the geopolitical concept of the Anthropocene. Drawing on religious studies, theology, social science, history and philosophy, and what can be broadly termed the environmental humanities, this collection represents a groundbreaking critical analysis of diverse narratives on the Anthropocene. The contributors to this volume recognize that the Anthropocene began as a geological concept, the age of the humans, but that its implications are much wider than this. Will the Anthropocene have good or bad ethical o
