Richard Bauckham offers a fresh approach to the relationship between humanity and creation and our responsibility before God to steward wisely. The volume offers fresh, often innovative approaches to a wide range of the issues that arise in relating the Bible and Christian theology to the ecological concerns of our contemporary world. It aims to show that the Bible has far more of relevance to say on the subject than is commonly supposed. While focusing especially on biblical material, it also engages Francis of Assisi, modernnature poetry, Matthew Fox and the history of interpretation.
