ECOLOGY AND CHRISTIAN THEOLOGY: AN INTRODUCTION WITH A COMPREHENSIVE,INDEXED BIBLIOGRAPHY

E M Conradie

Abstract


To discuss ‘green’ issues in Christian theology can no longer be regarded as something rather novel to do. The vast amount of literature included in this bibliography gives a sobering indication of exactly how much energy has been used (and paper has been spent) in the past two decades on writing theological essays and books on environmental issues.

It is, of course, important to ask what this huge theological effort has achieved thus far. In the light of a growing ecological crisis, it seems all too obvious that something needs to be done. It is actually often one of the problems of theological discussions on environmental issues that the imperative ‘to do something’ is merely and continuously reiterated.

In this contribution a brief attempt is made to indicate some trends in the current debates on ecology within Christian theology, to assess what has been achieved, and to stimulate specifically directed further research. The attached bibliography and index may provide some valuable material for this purpose.
