Ecology and Animal Rights

Dr Andrew Davies. BD MA PhD

Green issues are no longer exclusively the concern of conservationists and hippies which they once were. The way we should care for the planet has become a mainstream political concern of immense national and international significance, and cases of pollution and enviromental damage still raise strong feelings at local level.

Although the 'spiritual' justification offered by many environmental protestors often has strong roots in 'new age' or pagan philosophies, there are strong theological reasons for arguing that Christians should be equally passionate in their care for our God-given resources - although the Bible also offers an equally important counterbalance.
