Product Description

Does the biblical tradition reflect an anthropocentric---and exploitative---worldview? How should the elect view their responsibility for the earth in light of eschatology? In this groundbreaking book, Horrell, Hunt, and Southgate derive a fruitful ecological vision from the apostle's works, while staying true to the biblical text. A must-read for environmentalists, scholars, and students. 332 pages, softcover from Baylor University.

Publisher's Description

A remarkable, wide-ranging attempt to read the Pauline literature from an ecological perspective, Greening Paul, the first book of its kind, traverses carefully between extremes claiming to present Paul's narrative world and simply subjugating the Bible to a contemporary set of ethical values. Skillfully the authors craft their reading of Paul according to the cutting-edge insights of narrative criticism and tackle burning questions which assail Christians in the present ecological crisis: Does the biblical tradition inculcate an anthropocentric worldview that gives humanity license to exploit the earth for our benefit? Does biblical eschatology imply that the earth is of only passing significance for the elect? Greening Paul is a timely and adroit re-reading of the apostle Paul that provides a potentially very fruitful ecological vision, all the while staying true to the biblical text.
