All That We Are – Briefing Paper number 40

JRI is pleased to announce the publication of Briefing Paper number 40, All that we are’ by Samuel Perilla, a member of the Cross Current Environmental Sciences group. Starting with a selection of verses from Psalm 104, Perilla asks the question ‘Why don’t we, Christians, take care of this planet that God has given us?’ and looks at two possible answers through Biblical exploration of issues of identity and ignorance with specific reference to passages in Genesis and Leviticus. The paper can be downloaded from this link (pdf, 7 pages) and from the Briefings page of the website.
