As Christians, we believe that God, the creator of all, inhabited the earth in order to call to us. God of Earth embraces this central premise of Christianity-Jesus as both fully divine and fully human-and then allows for the possibility that such a Jesus need not be limited to a human man who lived in Judea two thousand years ago. What if Jesus were 'God of earth'-not only over earth but also in and through the earth? God of Earth opens up ideas about God that invite not only a feeling of reverence toward the earth but also a sense of wonder toward it. As Kristin Swenson explores the ever-changing and ever-renewing cycles of nature, she invites readers to reconsider our relationship to the nonhuman natural world.
