David Bookless
Issued Date: 6 Mar 2007


This paper tells the story of A Rocha, an international Christian conservation organization, founded in 1982, and now working in an increasing number of countries. A Rocha's distinctive inclusive Christian basis is eplored in describing the original Portuguese project, and three more recent ones in Lebenon, Kenya and an urban UK context. Some of the theological and missiological issues A Rocha's work touches upon are considered, including the biblical basis for practical conservation work, and the possibility of mission in a multifaith environment using creation as a starting point
