Christian ecotheology and the old testament

Environmental Ethics 6 (3):195-209 (1984)

Abstract
Because of its theocentric nature and the dispersion of relevant passages, the Old Testament presentation of creation theology is frequently misunderstood. I investigate the works of modem Old Testament scholars, particularly Walther Eichrodt, Gerhard von Rad, and Claus Westermann, in regard to the theology of creation. Using principles of analysis suggested by Gerhard Hasel, I discuss how the Old Testament portrays God as acting in both the original creation and post-Genesis events. The role of God as creator is not independent ofother major Old Testament themes, such as God the savior. God’s care for creation continues as does his blessing
