Environment

ByHOLMES ROLSTON, III

A recent concern is the extent to which nature has been and continues to be jeopardized, in terms of land health and biodiversity, by human development. Today there are, prominently on the scene, ecotheologians who address both of these concerns with a theology of ecology, or creation care, or a stewardship ethic, or Earth spirituality.
