Servants of Creation: Reshaping a Biblical Theology of Ecology

Modern Believing (1996), 37, (1), 16–24.

Abstract

The present paper contends that hitherto examination of the biblical position in view of potential ecological crises at the end of this century has been inadequate. The issues are: (a) whether the domination paradigm of the relationship between humans and the rest of creation has any remaining credibility; and (b) whether the stewardship model is an adequate corrective to the traditional stance. The paper will claim that (re)discovery of the servant-vocation provides a basis from which a practical ethic may be developed.
