A New Heaven, A New Earth: The Bible and Catholicity
Bergant, Dianne

Maryknoll, NY: Orbis, 2016 pp. vii + 200. $25.00

Series Information
Catholicity in an Evolving Universe

Description: This groundbreaking book is an experiment in reading the Bible through the lens of catholicity: a consciousness of the wholeness that pervades all life. Each chapter examines an aspect of the natural world (determined by the biblical text itself) from the perspective of the principle(s) of evolution and ecojustice. A New Heaven, A New Earth thus leads to new ways of understanding and talking about the Bible, God, creation, and humankind.

Subjects: Bible, Literature, Methods, Ideological Critique
