Bible and Ecology: Rediscovering the Community of Creation

Richard Bauckham | Funded by LSRI-UND-GEJP | Darton, Longman and Todd, 2010 | Reading level: Entry


Bauckham argues that the Bible exhibits the notion that all creatures are interconnected and are moreover related in their common dependence upon God. Further, he writes that modern exegetes must expand the biblical interpretation of humans’ role in the world beyond the outmoded themes of “dominion” and “stewardship.” Bauckham develops his argument over five chapters, each focusing on a different set of Biblical passages, encompassing the Pentateuch, the Psalms and the Prophets, Job, and the New Testament.
