The Bible and Biodiversity (Rev. David Bookless)
The Bible & Biodiversity
Rev. David Bookless (A Rocha)
From GreenChristian.org.uk, "Ordinairy Christians, Extraordinairy Times."
The organisation “The Jubilee Centre” launched the paper “The Bible and Biodiversity” with a presentation by David Bookless (of A Rocha). Mr. Bookless gave highlights from his paper “The Bible and Biodiversity”. Read the paper here.
David Nussbaum picked up on several points in David Bookless’s talk. e.g he loved “The image of God” as a “job description” – it is in Genesis that we read that God created Man in his image – but what is God’s image? – the image of God relates to our relationship with other creatures.
He also said that more could be made of the story of Noah. If God had just wanted to save humans, he could have asked Noah to build a big rowing boat for a few people – but instead he told Noah to build an ark.
