What is the biblical basis for creation care? How can people of faith come to understand the deepening environmental crisis and shape a fruitful response? Biblical scholar Patricia K. Tull opens scripture to the many voices that express God’s love for all of creation and humanity’s responsibility for its care. Using scripture as a lens, she considers the human contribution to ecological degradation, such as the use of fossil fuels, the industrial food production system, consumerism and toxic waste. Each chapter ends with reflection questions for use individually or in small groups, and the appendix includes a list for further reading. A workbook and leader guide for congregational study are also available. Inhabiting Eden is aimed at anyone who looks to scripture for inspiration and direction related to humanity’s role in creation stewardship.
