The Bible and Christian tradition have, at best, offered an ambiguous word in response to Earth's environmental difficulties. At worst, a complex, often one-sided history of interpretation has left the Bible's voice silent. Aiming to bridge these gaps, Richard Bauckham mines scripture and theology, discovering a firm command for Christians to care for all of God's creation and then discusses the generations of theologians who have sought to live out this biblical mandate. Going beyond Old Testament human dominion, Living with Other Creatures consults scripture in its entirety and includes Jesus' perspectives on creation, novel approaches to reading the gospels, and some of the most well known "ecologists" throughout Christian history. The result is an innovative and enriching treatise that reminds readers of God's whole creationand humanity's place within it.
Richard Bauckham is a fellow of the British Academy and the Royal Society of Edinburgh. He is the author of several books, including The Bible and Ecology: Rediscovering the Community of Creation and J esus and the Eyewitnesses: The Gospels as Eyewitness Testimony, winner of the 2009 Michael Ramsey Prize for Theological Writing.
contributes toward opening exegetical and theological vistas that have previously been closed.
Bauckham reminds the reader that, as Creator, God delights in and cares for all creation.... He wishes to recover the biblical view of human solidarity with the rest of creation by establishing creation's own inherent value. (Five-star review)
[Bauckham] aptly demonstrates that humanity is causing an ecological catastrophe that has been predicated on theological convictions. For this crisis to be remedied, it is necessary for Christians to shift their ecological outlook.
[Bauckham's] mature reflection has resulted in a book that is exegetically and theologically rewarding.
a fine supplementary text in seminaries and graduate level classes.
... a tremendous amount of value in these essays.
