Towards an Agenda for Ecological Theology: An Intercontinental Dialogue

Ernst M. Conradie
Issued Date: 24 Feb 2007


This contribution to outline an agenda for (Christian) ecological theology
includes a position paper from Ernst Conradie (Part 1). Responses to this
position paper1 from Sigurd Bergmann, Robert Borrong, Steve Bouma-
Prediger, Celia Deane-Drummond, Denis Edwards, William Everett, David
Field, Samson Gitau, Jesse Mugambi and Peter Scott, form Part 2. There is
also a rejoinder by Ernst Conradie. The paper identifies a number of issues
that an ecological theology has to address in the fields of ethics and
systematic theology (only). It calls for a proper theological rationale for
Christian earthkeeping and seeks to avoid theological reductionism.
Responses to this paper were invited from a somewhat random group of
friends, colleagues and associates from all around the world. A rejoinder
that offers a reply to these responses concludes this contribution.
