Colledge, R. (2010). Review: Mark Manolopoulos: If creation is a gift [accepted manuscript]. Pacifica, 1-3. Victoria: Pacifica Theological Studies Association.
Mark Manolopoulos’s book (a volume in the SUNY Theology and Continental Thought series) looks to bring together recent Continental philosophical thought on the gift with a strongly ecological perspective via the theological category of creation. While the project is not new, the book stands as fine introduction to the field, while also offering a useful contribution in the metaphor of thought that ‘oscillates’ among ecologically-responsible modes of dwelling on the earth which nonetheless persist in tension.
