Hi Ted. Thanks for the comment. As long as I'm pushing papers and books, I
might as well point out that the same issue of Dialog has a number of articles
on theology and environmental/ecological issues. Some of them will set the
teeth of part of this list on edge, but I'm partial to Paul Santmire's
excellent (IMHO) contribution "So that He might fill all things: Comprehending the
cosmic love of Christ".
Santmire recently retired from being a parish pastor and apparently has been
busy at the computer keyboard. He also has a paper in the Summer 2003
environmental theme issue of Christian Scholar's Review, along with others such as
Cal DeWitt, Loren Wilkinson, and (your colleagues at Messiah) Joseph Sheldon
and David Foster. Santmire has an interesting take on the stewardship theme in
"Partnership with nature according to the Scriptures: Beyond the theology of
stewardship". (Abstracts are available at <A HREF="http://www.hope.edu/resources/csr/XXXII4">
And for the liturgically inclined on the list, he also has a related paper "A
critical challenge for ecological theology: Liturgical renewal" in the
Sewanee Theological Review, 2003, v. 46, p. 423-446.
(See, I told you he's been busy!)
