Seppo Kjellberg : Urban Ecotheology



Ever since The Secular City by Harvey Cox, theology about the city has been either promoting secular theology or elaborating the missionary task of the church in modern cities. Urban ecotheology, a theology that would study the Christian impact on the environmental reality of the city for its own sake, is a rarely studied subject. Still, Seppo Kjellberg argues, the Christian message of emancipatory koinonia has very concrete applications within the environmental totality of the cities of both the industrialized world and developing countries. In Urban Ecotheology Seppo Kjellberg uses the critical framework of a contextual theology to present a cosmological instead of an anthropocentric attitude towards the city and all that lives within it.



Seppo Kjellberg, Th, teaches at the Åbo University in Turku, Finland.
