  1. Thank you, Elissa. You’ll want to check out Elizabeth Johnson’s new book Ask the Beasts: Darwin and the God of Love. Johnson presents a breathtakingly beautiful, but not in the least sentimental, ecocentric vision of the kosmos, explicitly rejecting an anthropocentric view of the natural world as simply a setting of the table for the meat and potatoes of human beings. In the last chapter, she exposes the lethal hubris of the “dominion paradigm”, “[r]epositioning the human species within the community of creation [paradigm]”, and concludes, in hope, by addressing our “ecological vocation”. With all Johnson’s work, highly recommended.
