About this product
- DescriptionIn this provocative book, Norman Wirzba argues that the doctrine of creation-as presented in the Bible and as developed through the centuries-actually holds the key to a true understanding of our place in the environment and our responsibility toward it. Wirzba contends that an adequate response to environmental destruction depends on a new formulation of ourselves as part of a larger whole, rather than as radically free individuals. Drawing on the work of biblical scholars, ecologists, agrarians, philosophers, theologians, and cultural critics, Wirzba develops a comprehensive worldview that grows out of the idea that the world is God's creation.
- Author BiographyNorman Wirzba is an Associate Professor and Chair of the Philosophy Department at Georgetown College in Kentucky. He is the editor of The Art of the Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays of Wendell Berry (2002) and The Essential Agrarian Reader: The Future of Culture, Community, and the Land.
