Wind, Sun, Soil, Spirit: Biblical Ethics and Climate Change
Carol Robb brings an ecological ethics in theological perspective, and it integrates economic theory, environmental policy, and most distinctively New Testament studies. Alongside deliberation on scenarios for the future in light of climate change and assessing criteria for ethical policy in this area, she reflects on implications of New Testament worldview for ethics now. Relating Jesus's life, ministry, and teachings to the resurrection, then probing how Paul and other early followers of Jesus related to the empire provides a fruitful fund of ideas for Christian responsibility in this area.
