This essay is a theological response to Terence E. Fretheim's God and World in the Old Testament. I will look first at Fretheim's theological method and hermeneutics. Then, I will examine the theme of God's relationality as it relates to God's openness and human ongoing participation with continuous creation. In this section I will also address praise, judgment, and salvation. Finally, I will offer a brief theological reflection on Pentecostal glossolalic speech as indicated by Rom. 8.26-27. I argue that glossolalic speech as an act of prayerful praise causes one to enter into the deep symbiotic relationship with the sociality of God and nonhuman creation. This is one significant way for the charismatic community to participate with God in continuous creation.
