Earth Story in Genesis by Norman C. Habel

Book Description

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, and alienated from, humans but ends with all the Earth Community-and Earth itself-bound together equally in a covenant.

Inconvenient Text by Norman C. Habel Inconvenient Text, Paperback (July 2009)

The Bible is an inconvenient text. There are passages that are 'grey' rather than 'green'. These passages depict God or humans destroying or devaluing parts of creation.

Earth Bible by Norman C. Habel Earth Bible, Paperback (October 2002)

The "Earth Bible" is an international project, including volumes on ecojustice readings of major sections of the Bible. Volume V reflects on responses to the ecojustice principles in the hermeneutic of the project, and on New Testament texts that seem to devalue Earth in favour of heaven.
