Abstract

Against James Nash’s proposal that scripture has no regard for biodiversity or untamed nature I propose that on the contrary scripture contains a rich narrative of ecological respect and restoration. Nash fails to see this because he reads scripture along the lines of the now discredited form critical approach to the Bible. When scripture is read as canon it speaks clearly of human duties to care for other kind, and to respect a cosmic covenant between Creator and all creatures.
