Earth Bible – Reading the Bible from the Perspective of the Earth

Saw this the other day. I’ve been thinking (& lecturing) about the imago Dei recently and its implications for humanities relationship with the world and this seemed helpful possibility if they finish it. And it has an Antipodean flavour.

From their web site at: Earth Bible

The basic aims of the Earth Bible Project are to

  1. develop ecojustice principles appropriate to an earth hermeneutic for interpreting the Bible and for promoting justice and healing of Earth;
  2. publish these interpretations as contributions to the current debate on ecology, ecoethics and ecotheology;
  3. provide a responsible forum within which the suppressed voice of Earth may be heard and impulses for healing Earth may be generated.”
