dc.descriptionIncludes bibliographical references (p. 552)
dc.description.abstractEcology portrays a web of life, interdependence, harmony, life persisting in the midst of its perpetual perishing. Such nature commands appropriate respect. Both theism and ecology find a dynamic, enduring Earth and face concerns about environmental sustainability. Monotheists claim that persons must use the Earth both justly and charitably. Loving the land is a central theme of the Hebrew Bible. The fauna is included within the covenant, Humans have dominion, are trustees, stewards--environmental managers. Anciently Palestine was a promised land. Today ecotheologians call for peoples globally to see Earth as a planet with promise.
