Exploring ecological hermeneutics by Society of Biblical Literature ( )
13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,002 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What has hermeneutics to do with ecology? What texts, if any, come to mind when you consider what the scriptures might say about environmental ethics? To help readers think critically and clearly about the Bible's relation to modern environmental issues, this volume expands the horizons of biblical interpretation to introduce ecological hermeneutics, moving beyond a simple discussion about Earth and its constituents as topics to a reading of the text from the perspective of Earth. In these essays, sixteen scholars seek ways to identify with Earth as they read and retrieve the role or voice of Earth, a voice previously unnoticed or suppressed within the biblical text and its interpretation. --From publisher's description
Literary criticism of the Old Testament by Norman C Habel ( Book )

Readings from the perspective of Earth ( )
6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume introduces the hermeneutical approach and ecojustice principles developed by the Earth Bible project team. Following this approach, biblical scholars illustrate how a reading of the biblical text from the perspective of Earth yields fresh insights. Though the text may seem anthropocentric, these studies are able to retrieve evidence of the living voice and intrinsic value of Earth. It is an approach that can be harmonized with other recognized critical approaches to the Bible, from historical criticism to ecofeminist criticism. The texts chosen are from many parts of the Bible (Psa
The earth story in Genesis ( )
7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A series of articles by scholars from around the world reading the story of Earth in Genesis in the light of the ecojustice principles enunciated in Volume One, 'Readings from the Perspective of Earth'. These readings uncover how Earth may be valued or de-valued, given a voice or denied a voice, dominated or served, depending on the orientation of the text. In Genesis 1, for example, the intrinsic worth of Earth is highlighted in the 'revealing' of Earth's presence but negated when humans are given the right to 'subdue' it. In Genesis 9 the text begins with the Earth community terrified by, an
The Earth story in wisdom traditions ( )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this volume scholars from around the world read the story of the Earth in major Wisdom Traditions using the ecojustice principles outlined in Volume 1, 'Readings from the Perspective of Earth'. These readings uncover a range of fresh perspectives about Earth in seeking to discover where the voices of Earth are suppressed or heard in the Wisdom texts. Some texts reveal an ecokinship between Earth and Wisdom. Texts from Job challenge a cosmic model that gives priority to heaven over Earth. Still others challenge the mandate to dominate in Genesis 1.28. In many texts, Wisdom provides a vehicle
The Earth story in the Psalms and the Prophets ( )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this volume, scholars from around the world read the story of Earth in key texts from the Psalms and the Prophets. Their readings challenge popular understandings of the Chaoskampf myth, the theophany of Psalm 29 and the New Earth in Isaiah 65. Re-readings of Ezekiel expose the cruelty of divine justice extended to the natural world. Several articles by indigenous writers sensitive to the voice of Earth bring new insights to the potential meaning of texts like Psalm 104. Contributors include Lloyd Geering, Russell Nelson, William Urbrock, Laurie Braaten, Keith Carley, Anne Gardner, John Olle
The Earth story in the New Testament ( )
6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Earth Bible is an international project, including volumes on ecojustice readings of major sections of the Bible. The basic aims of the Earth Bible project are: to develop ecojustice principles appropriate to an Earth hermeneutic for interpreting the Bible and for promoting justice and healing for Earth; to publish these interpretations as contributions to the current debate on ecology, ecoethics and ecotheology; to provide a responsible forum within which the suppressed voice of Earth may be heard and impulses for healing Earth may be generated. The project explores text and tradition from the perspective of Earth, employing a set of ecojustice principles developed in consultation with ecologists, suspecting that the text and/or its interpreters may be anthropocentric and not geocentric, but searching to retrieve alternative traditions that hear the voice of Earth and value Earth as more than a human instrument. The lead article in Volume V is a reflection in responses to the ecojustice principles employed in the hermeneutic of the project. Several articles offer insights into New Testament texts that seem to devalue Earth in favour of heaven. The final article by Barbara Rossing challenges the popular apocalyptic notion that in the new age Earth will be terminated. A feature of this volume is a dialogue between Norman Habel, who argues that John One seems to devalue Earth, and two respondents, Elaine Wainwright and Vicky Balabanski (who is coeditor of this volume with Norman Habel). 1

3 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It also examines the relevance of key biblical passages relating to water as a positive and a negative force.

The cover design is an indigenous Australian artists depiction of the biblical theme of the Transfiguration in terms of local water traditions of life and death cycles of the lotus flower.
