Item description for The Earth Story in Wisdom Traditions (Earth Bible) by Norman Habel & Shirley Wurst...
Overview Ecofeminist readings emphasize the supression of women's voices and the voices of the Earth. Essays in this volume explore texts that recover the Earth's voice, while other essays invite the reader to celebrate how creation is central to the book of Job and the ways that the Song of Songs calls us to celebrate Earth. The writers highlight the importance of Wisdom being portrayed as a woman in a patriarchial world. The Earth Bible Series team introduces readers to a new understanding of the earth using six ecojustice principles, moving beyond identifying ecological themes in creation theology. The six principles are: The principle of intrinsic value, The principle of interconnectedness, The principle of voice, The principle of purpose, The principle of mutual custodianship, The principle of resistance.
