WINNER 2017 CATHOLIC PRESS ASSOCIATION BOOK AWARD! - FIRST PLACE, SCRIPTURE (Popular)

This groundbreaking book is an experiment in reading the Bible through the lens of catholicity: a consciousness of the wholeness that pervades all life. Each chapter examines an aspect of the natural world (determined by the biblical text itself) from the perspective of the principle(s) of evolution and ecojustice. A New Heaven, A New Earth thus leads to new ways of understanding and talking about the Bible, God, creation, and humankind.

Dianne Bergant, C.S.A., is Carroll Stuhlmueller, C.P., Distinguished Professor Emerita of Old Testament Studies, Catholic Theological Union, Chicago. A past president of the Catholic Biblical Association of America, she is the author of many books, including Genesis: In the Beginning and A Word for Every Season: Reflections on the Lectionary Readings.

Sr. Dianne Bergant, C.S.A. makes a significant contribution to the field and study of theology and Sacred Scripture in her most recent book A New Heaven, A New Earth: The Bible and Catholicity. While there is a common thread running through the introduction and the seven chapters of the book, each chapter is unique and offers readers a lens through which to read Sacred Scripture with freshness. The hermeneutical lens she offers her readers is one that is both ancient and new and is a catholicity whose range is cosmological....The book is definitely worth reading and using in the classroom. I highly recommend it for foundational theology courses, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. I believe it would also be valuable for adult education classes in the Church.
