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.
