E 192 Responding Faithfully to the Environmental Crisis: Christianity at the Time of the Anthropocene (2019)


The environmental crisis does not find its roots in Christian theology but in a modernist notion that the material world can be controlled and exploited by human technology. This has brought us to the brink of a new epoch, the Anthropocene.

This fascinating study explores the implications of this, arguing that Christians have a unique contribution to offer in turning understanding into action, drawing on apocalyptic thinking that challenges the empty hope of redemption through progress.
