Theological tradition has lost its sense of the created nature of the world, leading to a complete break between the way we know God and the world. The Johannine tradition of creation through the Word and a Eucharistic semiotic of Christ as the embodied creative speech of God serve to reintegrate Christian cosmology. This book sets out "a new understanding" of reality, as encountered in and through Jesus Christ, and explores new modes of ecclesial reasoning.Offers a scriptural account of the worldExplores a theology of the Eucharist as divine creativityOliver Davies is one of the UK's leading theologiansContentsINTRODUCTION: THE COSMOLOGICAL IMPERATIVEPart I.
