9780521576314: The Environment and Christian Ethics (New Studies in Christian Ethics)

This book is about the extent, origins and causes of the environmental crisis. Dr. Northcott argues that Christianity has lost the biblical awareness of the interconnectedness of all life. He shows how Christian theologians and believers might recover a more ecologically-friendly belief system and life style. The author provides an important corrective to secular approaches to environmental ethics, including utilitarian individualism, animal rights theories and deep ecology.

Book Description:

Arguing that Christianity has lost biblical awareness of the interconnectedness of life, this text shows how Christian theologians and believers might recover a more ecologically-friendly belief system and life style. It provides an important corrective to secular approaches to environmental ethics.

Review:

'Northcott does an extremely competent job of summary and selection in working his way through these huge topics - so much so that one could well imagine this book becoming established as a useful introductory textbook on Christianity and ecology.' Linda Woodhead, Church Times

'... a valuable contribution to one of the more important debates around.' Bernard Hoose, The Tablet

'Michael Northcott has succeeded in producing a real and significant work of scholarship ... In places I found it almost inspirational and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to any intelligent person to read, whatever their academic background and view of Christianity.' Michael Reiss, Crucible

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This book is about the extent, origins and causes of the environmental crisis. Dr Northcott argues that Christianity has lost the biblical awareness of the inter-connectedness of all life. He shows how Christian theologians and believers might recover a more ecologically friendly belief system and life style. The author provides an important corrective to secular approaches to environmental ethics, including utilitarian individualism, animal rights theories and deep ecology. He contends that neither the stewardship tradition, nor the panentheist or process ecological theologies have successfully mobilised the Christian tradition. He demonstrates that the Hebrew Bible contains an ecological message which is close to the traditions of many primal and indigenous peoples and which provides an important corrective to instrumental attitudes to nature in much modern philosophy and Christian ethics.
