Earth Story in Genesis takes up the cause of justice for the earth to discover whether the earth and the earth community are oppressed, silenced, or liberated in biblical text through a series of articles by scholars inspired by a reading of the story of earth in Genesis. The Earth may be valued or devalued, given a voice or denied a voice, dominated or served, depending on the orientation of the text. The ecojustice principles introduced in Volume 1, Readings from the Perspective of Earth, are further supported and enhanced. The Earth Story in Genesis invites you to read as a critical scholar and with an empathetic eye.
-Publisher


A series of articles by scholars from around the world reading the story of Earth in Genesis in the light of the ecojustice principles enunciated in Volume One, 'Readings from the Perspective of Earth'. These readings uncover how Earth may be valued or de-valued, given a voice or denied a voice, dominated or served, depending on the orientation of the text. In Genesis 1, for example, the intrinsic worth of Earth is highlighted in the 'revealing' of Earth's presence but negated when humans are given the right to 'subdue' it. In Genesis 9 the text begins with the Earth community terrified by, and alienated from, humans but ends with all the Earth Community-and Earth itself-bound together equally in a covenant.
