Chapter Summary

The attempt to discuss Abraham Kuyper's legacy for contemporary ecotheology is likely to be received with some reluctance and suspicion. This reluctance might even be greater than initially felt, because, with the subject of ecotheology, the theme of creation is put on the agenda. The project of a Christian ecotheology is an attempt to explore the universality of the Christian gospel in relation to our world as God's own creation. A theology of the cross instead of an emphasis on creation has dominated theology in the last decades. The tension between obedience and disobedience, between leaving room for God to speak and, in fact, being a blockade, forms the existential challenge for a living theology. Conradie's essay elaborates extensively on the lack of clarity regarding the relation between common grace and particular grace. It draws the attention to the relation between common grace and rebirth or palingenesis..
