A Theology of the Built Environment: Justice, Empowerment, Redemption

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Jul 11, 2002 - Religion - 296 pages
T.J. Gorringe's book reflects theologically on the built environment. After considering the divine grounding of constructed space, he looks at the ownership of land, the issues of housing (both urban and rural) and considers the built environment in terms of community and art. The book concludes with two chapters that set everything within the current framework of the environmental crisis and question directions the Church should be pursuing in building for the future.
