Item description for Open Theism and Environmental Responsibilities- A Promotion of Environmental Ethics by Sharon R. Harvey...
Theology is one of the hindrances to seeing ecojustice take place. Evaluation of the God/human/world relationship in Christian environmental ethics is necessary due to difficulties regarding competition in nature and the traditional concept of God. Theological ethics of the environment are needed that are practical, compatible with science, and that promote human responsibility. This book examines the problems of theodicy and theism coming from traditional Protestant Christianity that continue to prevent it from producing an intelligible environmental ethic. It analyzes the concept of God's self-limitation in openness theology and its pragmatic stress on experience. With openness theology, the dynamic qualities of nature and God are adequately accounted for, providing a new vision and framework for future Christian environmental ethics. The book is addressed to Christian and Jewish ecotheologians, environmental philosophers, Christian religious constituents, the scientific community, and researchers in environmental science, environmental studies, religious studies, philosophy of religion, intelligent design, pragmatic philosophy, environmental ethics, and Kabbala.
