What is it about?

Traditional Christian views of the non-human world accepted its inferiority to us, and assumed a controlling or managing role over nature. The current ecological crisis shows these attitudes and behaviours were misplaced. Elizabeth Johnson has offered a revised understanding of our relationship to nature, based in Scripture and Christian theology. It affirms the independent value and meaning of non-human nature in relation to God.

Why is it important?

People of faith are open to new understandings of how our attitudes and behaviours can honour God's creation, and how we can reconcile scientific understandings of history and destiny with Christian hope.


Although I raised some questions about Johnson's approach to the project of reconciling Darwin and the Nicene Creed, I found her treatment even-handed, thorough, and creative, and was happy to bring it to the attention of others through my paper.
