We've called our book, God's Gardeners and borrow from the wise words of Peter Harris to express the heart of this metaphor: “...gardening reminds us that God is the one giving the growth, and not us. Gardening, even in a groaning ...

This collection of stories marks Singapore’s first book on creation care. Each story captures how ordinary Christians from different walks of life have humbly put their faith into radical action, and integrated the biblical ethos of creation care into the everyday. The writers reflect on creation care as an organic part of the path of discipleship and missional living, rather than an imposed or burdensome duty. The book presents a refreshing local perspective on the distinctiveness of Christian environmental ethics, seeks to encourage fellow Christians on this creation care journey, and inspire those who have yet to begin. Ultimately, it is an invitation to followers of Christ to care for God’s marvellous creation as an act of worship and love.

This book was written with the idea of taking a nonconfrontational approach to challenge what I perceive as a dogmatic status quo in many churches today. My wish is that my efforts can serve as a launch pad for a discussion that will question why we do the things we do and move us towards a Christ-centric community of faith. Allegorical language is used to bring out the point that some traditions we hold dear have become, at best, counterproductive and accomplish nothing in reaching out to a lost and dying world. This book tries to show God’s plan and desire for humanity in contrast to what we continually do in order to get back into the garden. The essence of the text is God’s love towards us, and that is what we need to reflect to the world.

In 2011, Frances Young delivered the Bampton Lectures in Oxford to great acclaim. She offered a systematic theology with contemporary coherence, by engaging in conversation with the fathers of the church - those who laid down the parameters of Christian theology and enshrined key concepts in the creeds - and exploring how their teachings can be applied today, despite the differences in our intellectual and ecclesial environments. This book results from a thorough rewriting of those lectures in which Young explores the key topics of Christian doctrine in a way that is neither simply dogmatic nor simply historical. She addresses the congruence of head and heart, through academic and spiritual engagement with God's gracious accommodation to human limitations. Christianity and biblical interpretation are discussed in depth, and the book covers key topics including Creation, anthropology, Christology, soteriology, spirituality, ecclesiology and Mariology, making it invaluable to those studying historical and constructive theology.
