Towards a Theology of the Environment

Paul Haffner

Haffner's book helps the reader to understand Pope Francis' new encyclical Laudato Si in the light of the Church's tradition.
As Pope Francis pointed out: 'In the Judaeo-Christian tradition, the word “creation” has a broader meaning than “nature”, for it has to do with God’s loving plan in which every creature has its own value and significance. Nature is usually seen as a system which can be studied, understood and controlled, whereas creation can only be understood as a gift from the outstretched hand of the Father of all, and as a reality illuminated by the love which calls us together into universal communion..' (para 76)
