THE THEOLOGICAL AUTHORITY OF THE BIBLE AND ECOLOGICAL THEOLOGY

David N Field

Abstract


Can the bible function as a theological authority for eco-theology given its
conflicting messages concerning the earth and humanity’s relationship to it and in
particular the deeply anthropocentric character of some passages? This article
critically examines five approaches to the Bible that seek to affirm its theological
authority while recognising its problematic character. It then proposes criteria for
an alternative model.
