Revelation And The Environment Ad 95-1995
This book is the culmination of a remarkable symposium held at sea to mark the 1900th anniversary of the writing of the “Book of Revelation” by the Theologian St. John. Also known as the “Apocalpyse”, it was the source of inspiration for 200 scientists, religious leaders, philosophers, economists, and policy makers from all over the world to come together and contemplate the dangers to the planet's survival due to wasteful abuses of the environment, particularly the oceans. ”The Book of Revelation” and the Environment AD 95-1995 provides a forum to integrate current scientific knowledge with a spiritual approach so as to ensure careful stewardship of the earth's finite resources.
