In this book Elizabeth Johnson takes a fresh approach to theology in reflecting on cosmic redemption in a time of advancing ecological devastation, to consider how Christian belief can embrace all created beings. She lays out the foundations in scripture, the teachings of Jesus and the early church for an understanding that emphasises the love and mercy of God. Elizabeth Johnson takes up the challenge of Paul's insight that the whole creation waits to be set free from its bondage to decay in order to share in the glorious freedom of the children of God, - who are themselves groaning while waiting in hope for the redemption of their bodies, refering to Romans 8:18-25. This drives her enquiry as to God's plans for the redemption of creation. She concludes that the focus should not just be "sin" but "sin and the cross". Scripture shows multiple ways of speaking about salvation, and this she explores through a conversation between two people who search the scriptures afresh.
