E 148 Tenants in God's Land: Earth-keeping and People-keeping in the Old Testament

£2.96
It has sometimes been said that the focus on humanity in the early chapters of Genesis had led to Christian misuse of the environment and, to a lesser extent, the oppression of others.

But the careful and convincing reading offered here shows the centrality to Genesis of a sense of common purpose between humanity and creation and within humanity itself. This contrasts with both ancient and modern alternatives, and sets a challenging agenda for the twin tasks of respect for the earth and concern for others.
