THEO 5429 Theology and Ecology (Fall: 3 )
This course studies the emergence of ecological theology as a form of liberation theology. It investigates the roots of environmental degradation in the Judeo-Christian tradition and the attempts of contemporary theologians to re-envision our understanding of God, human being and nature in order to shape a sustainable, planetary theology. Authors studied include Thomas Berry, Teilhard de Chardin, Leonardo Boff, Dennis Edwards, Ivone Gebara, Elizabeth Johnson, Sallie McFague, Rosemary Radford Ruether, and statements of the World Council of Churches, the Orthodox Patriarchs, and the Catholic hierarchy.
