An Ecological Vision of the World: Toward a Christian Ecological Theology for Our Age
Gregorian Biblical BookShop, 2004 - 311 pages
This study is an endeavour on the basis of the Christian theological tradition to overcome the tendency of the human's arrogant domination and reckless exploitation of nature. The author presents an alternative vision of the world to the current, excessively dualistic and anthropocentric worldview. This alternative worldview is an ecological vision of the world, which is relational and inclusive. This ecological worldview is a Christian vision of the world, which is rooted in the triune God, out of love, and is present in creation out of love from beginning to end. It is further asserted that this ecological vision of the world can contribute to a spirituality of life and peace and to a Christian life committed to cosmic justice.
