This book argues that the modern separation of humanity from nature can be traced to the displacement of the triune God. Locating the source of our current ecological crisis in this separation, Peter Scott argues that it can only be healed within theology, through a revival of a Trinitarian doctrine of creation interacting with political philosophies of ecology. Drawing insights from deep ecology, ecofeminism, and social and socialist ecologies, Scott proposes a common realm of God, nature and humanity. Both Trinitarian and political, the theology of this common realm is worked out by reference to Christ and Spirit. Christ's resurrection is presented as the liberation and renewal of ecological relations in nature and society, the movement of the Holy Spirit is understood as the renewal of fellowship between humanity and nature through ecological democracy, and the Eucharist is proposed as the principal political resource Christianity offers for an ecological age.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The work is stimulating and informative, and is likely to advance a Christian engagement with the issues.' Church Times
'... the book is both persuasive and evocative and worthy of a wide readership.' Reviews in Religion and Theology
' ... a valuable resource for those interested in engaging with current thinking in this are ... its originality and power warrant careful and serious attention.' Crucible
"Deeply Chistocentric and Trinitarian in its theological vision, the book is also profoundly political, arguing persuasively that the way out of our ongoing debasement of the natural world requires a new political theology that is sensitive to the social and political complexity of our ecological crisis." Choice
"Engaging, challenging, refreshingly political, and deeply grounded in the Chrisitian tradition." Theological Studies
"This new work by Peter Scott makes a powerful case for a social and political basis for ecological theology...The book is elegantly written and precise in its criticisms of contemporary theologies influenced by deep ecology." - The Journal of Religion Mark I. Wallace, Swarthmore College
