Bonhoeffer’s Christocentric Theology and Fundamental Debates in Environmental Ethics
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Steven van de Heuvel does not make Dietrich Bonhoeffer into an 'ecotheologian avant la letter,' but he convincingly shows that in his earth-oriented theology, Bonhoeffer is a crucial conversation partner for twenty-first-century environmental ethics."
--Frits de Lange, Professor of Ethics, Extraordinary Professor, Stellenbosch University, South Africa; author of Loving Later Life: An Ethics of Aging
"In this splendid book, the author brings Bonhoeffer into a theologically well-informed and hermeneutically reflective conversation with environmental ethics. No other work has hitherto shown in such depth the importance of Bonhoeffer's Christology with its attendant key concepts of eschatology, Stellvertretung, responsible action, mandates, the natural, and theological anthropology for eco-theology. This is an important and much-needed contribution to Bonhoeffer studies and environmental ethics."
--Jens Zimmermann, Canada Research Professor for Intepretation, Religion, and Culture, Trinity Western University; Visiting Professor for Philosophy, Theology, and Literature, Regent College, Vancouver
"In this book, van den Heuvel not only shows a profound knowledge and thorough analysis of the theology of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, but also an admirable skill to apply the results of his research to the present discussion on environmental ethics. Undoubtedly a major achievement!"
--Gerard den Hertog, Theological University Apeldoorn (NL)
