Readings from the Perspective of the Earth by Norman C. Habel
Book DescriptionThis 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 (Psalms, Prophets, Gospels, Romans, Revelation) and the intertestamental literature (Tobit and Wisdom of Solomon).

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.

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.
