Christian positions on environmental theology
As a forester, I have had a passing interest in what has become eco-theology since the mid-1970s. In that time a number of “theologies of the environment” have been produced, each claiming to be THE Christian position on the subject.
The following is my attempt at presenting those I have been exposed to and to describe them dispassionately with what I see to be their their strengths and weaknesses. Clearly there are differences among Christians in defining the problem and which Christian principles should apply.
This exercise started as a light-hearted game but several people have taken it seriously and contributed their thoughts and corrected some of my mis-representations. Thus the table has more value in the debate than I thought. Feel free to get back to me with some of your own thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org and, who knows, we might even make it even better.
