The God of Turbulence Co Partners with us in Community of the Cosmos--Elizabeth Johnson's book, Ask the Beasts


In her provocative new book, Ask the Beasts,  Elizabeth Johnson states that the world is the Body of God and the infinite creativity of God is always moving within us and opening us up to fresh possibilities."The indwelling Creator Spirit grounds not only life's regularities, but also the novel occurrences that open up the status quo igniting what is unexpected, interruptive, genuinely uncontrolled and unimaginably possible...Divine Creativity is much more allied to the outbreak of novelty than our older order-oriented theology ever imagined. In the emergent evolutionary universe, we should not be surprised to find the Creator Spirit hovering very close to turbulence."  (p.173 )
Elizabeth Johnson's book takes our evolutionary consciousness to a new level that integrates a deep theological  understanding with a mystical awareness which leads  to the realization  that our neighbor is the entire universe. Therefore, our ecological vocation challenges us to take responsibility for the community of creation. If you want a book to stretch your imagination and feed your soul, I  highly recommend this visionary book. Bridget Mary Meehan, ARCWP, www.arcwp.org
