Christ and a Theology of the Environment
Daniel McNamarra
PDF Version Download

The author begins with a situationer on the effects of global warming in the Philippines. The author then discusses a theology of the environment that sees the environment as a System. Particular focus is given to the work of Teilhard de Chardin and his exposition of the Christic element in evolution. The nexus between the modern system approach to the environment and Teilhard’s theology is the theme of energy. For Teilhard de Chardin, Christ is the central axis of the evolving world and so it’s prime “Energy”.
