Customer Questions & Answers for
SVS Press Living in God's Creation: Orthodox Perspectives on Ecology

While the Christian East is gaining recognition among many churches in the West, few have yet to understand how deeply ecological the vision of Orthodox Christianity truly is. The Eastern Church holds creation to be an epiphany of God while seeing human beings as His unifying masterwork, functioning as a connective link that unites the creation and the Creator. This implication charges us then to boldly manifest our love for God, for others, and for our environment, by practicing "the right use of material things." To communicate this vision, Elizabeth Theokritoff draws upon ancient sources--the Church Fathers, the liturgy, and saints' lives--to present fresh wisdom and insight from the Orthodox tradition that is both accessible and relevant to theologians and lay people alike. Living in God's Creation is essential reading that demonstrates the role God's people are to play in the care of the His creation, while exemplifying the long tradition Christianity holds toward environmental concerns.
