The Bible and ecology
MetadataShow full item record
The Bible is not a book of ecology. It does recommend a human ecology, accentuating life in justice and love that makes possible a good (righteous), long (sustainable) life in a promised, promising land. Contemporary readers encounter claims about how to value nature, the earthen genesis with intrinsic goodness, blessed by God. That vision is biocentric, anthropocentric, and theocentric. The Hebrew scriptures can be a catalyst in our ecological crisis.
