The Groaning of Creation: God, Evolution, and the Problem of Evil [Paperback]
Pain, suffering, and extinction are intrinsic to the evolutionary process. In this book Christopher Southgate shows how the world that is "very good" is also "groaning in travail" and subjected by God to that travail. Southgate then evaluates several attempts at evolutionary theodicy and argues for his own approach--an approach that takes full account of God's self-emptying and human beings' special responsibilities as created co-creators.

Greening Paul: Rereading the Apostle in a Time of Ecological Crisis [Paperback]
A remarkable, wide-ranging attempt to read the Pauline literature from an ecological perspective, this is the first book of its kind. It traverses carefully between extremes claiming to present Paul's narrative world and simply subjugating the Bible to a contemporary set of ethical values.
