What Can The Bible Tell Us About Ecology?

A More Sustainable Diet

There are over 116,000 fast food chain stores around the world. The majority of people in the world eat these chains’ food each year, with common ingredients being meat, cheese, wheat, corn, oil, and sugar.

The homogeneity in diet worldwide has contributed to a dramatic decline in the biodiversity of food crops, which the UN cites as a threat to global food security.

This has also led to a dramatic decline in individual health.

Sustainability and Environmental Mindfulness

Applying Biblical ethics to stewardship, conservation, and creation care is not just an idea for today, but is essential for a future where we and future generations live in balance, thriving on a planet that remains viable for all life.

At a time of both ecological and spiritual crisis, ecological reading of the Bible can have profound impact on human behavior since billions of people worldwide consider it a holy book.

Eco Bible Addresses These Challenges with Positivity and Hope

“Almost as soon as I began reading, I knew that the Eco Bible would be a long term companion for me as I work to care for God’s creation and encourage other people of faith to do the same. Most communities of environmentalists I’ve encountered are heavily burdened by grim predictions of the future, which create an atmosphere of pessimism and disillusionment. What is unique to a Biblical perspective is hope, the “knowledge that we can choose; that we can learn from our mistakes and act differently next time.” The focus of environmentalism in the Eco Bible is completely different from a secular sense of hopelessness: here there is a spiritual conviction that we can and must turn from our destructive actions and live as we were created to: in peaceful, mutually beneficial flourishing with all that is.”
