In this five-week course, the focus will be on key biblical texts (Genesis 1-3, Psalms 8 and 104, Proverbs, NT, Revelation, etc.) that discuss creation, God's relationship to creation, and humanity's standing within the natural world. This course will examine the way the Bible has been used to justify social oppression and ecological degradation and will explore the potential of biblical texts to promote social and ecological responsibility.
