Abstract / Description of output

The human roles in relation to the rest of the created world has long been debated in Christian circles. Now, the pressing immanence of climate change throws those roles, based on the assumption of a stable climate, into jeopardy. This article begins to articulate how the usual anthropological models used in eco theology, including stewardship, priesthood, and more, begin to shift in the shadow of climate change. Woven through this argument is reflection on how the science of restoration ecology, one of the primary sciences of ecological care, is related to these different visions of humanity’s role.
