TH 231 The Bible and Ecology (Spring: 3)
In this course we will: (1) identify and analyze a variety of biblical understandings
of how humans relate to nature, from the Genesis creation accounts to St.
Paul's notion of a liberated creation; (2) evaluate the influences of these
Biblical ideas on current trends in theology, ethics, and ecology; and (3)
explore ways in which religious world views hinder and/or enhance efforts
to protect and preserve the environment.
