Overview

A Joyful Theology: Creation, Commitment, and an Awesome God by Sara Maitland

In A Joyful Theology, Sara Maitland writes, "I am going to try to look at the creation ... in the assumption that it was made by God. I am not looking for evidence for God, but evidence of God -- in much the same way that art critics use the very shape and weight of brushstrokes as evidence as to which artist painted a particular picture. God made the world, so it must be marked with God's brushstrokes, God's voice patterns, God's fingerprints, God's DNA. What sort of picture of God can I build up from this evidence?" Maitland's lively and entertaining exploration builds up a picture of a God who inspires awe, who calls us to be committed to one another, and who invites us to live in joy.
