Paradise of God by Norman Wirzba

Book Description

In this provocative book, Norman Wirzba argues that the doctrine of creation-as presented in the Bible and as developed through the centuries-actually holds the key to a true understanding of our place in the environment and our responsibility toward it. Wirzba contends that an adequate response to environmental destruction depends on a new formulation of ourselves as part of a larger whole, rather than as radically free individuals. Drawing on the work of biblical scholars, ecologists, agrarians, philosophers, theologians, and cultural critics, Wirzba develops a comprehensive worldview that grows out of the idea that the world is God's creation.
