Readers of the Bible often overlook the extent to which it is grounded in the created world, having much to say about water, air, earth, fire, animals and vegetation. The author of this book highlights the ecological wisdom found in the sacred texts, including a consideration of Christ and creation, and concludes with an examination of the ecological insights of three key figures in the Christian tradition - Hildegard of Bingen, Francis of Assisi and Albert Schweitzer. Besides being of interest to the general reader, this book may well offer inspiration for the sermons of clergy and lay preachers, helping them to read the Bible through 'ecological eyes'. 'Through Ecological Eyes' is a sensible and considered reflection on the environmental crises Australians face. It is a book for the concerned general reader.
