About this product
- DescriptionIs stewardship a useful way of regarding our relationship with our environment - or is it a dangerous excuse for plunder? Is it possible for us to be effective stewards? Or are we irrelevant parasites? Or foolish virgins unprepared for the Master's return? The tion that God has appointed us to care for creation has a long history and has been taken over into secular thinking. But can we be responsible for something if we do t ackwledge an Owner? This book gathers together classical expositions of stewardship with criticisms of the concept and adds other contributions written especially for this collection, linked by a critical commentary from the editor, R. J. Berry. The authors include both religious thinkers and practical conservationists. The questions faced were sparked by a conference of scientists and theologians organized by the John Ray Initiative and continued in a consultation at St George's House, Windsor Castle, with papers from Robin Attfield (philosopher), Murray Rae (theologian), Calvin DeWitt (environmental biologist), and Jim Lovelock (biogeochemist). The essays presented here are t simply an intellectual pastiche; they are a distillation of ideas to challenge us how to treat our environment - whether or t we call it 'Creation'.
- Author BiographyRJ (Sam) Berry is Professor Emeritus of Genetics at University College, London. He is both a distinguished scientist and committed Christian: he has served as President of the British Ecological Society, the European Ecological Federation and of Christians in Science.
