The book is a special endeavor for readers of any sector to enable them to reread the Biblical Texts entirely from non-traditional Ecological perspectives and motivate them to join hands with the people who have genuine concern for the Creation.Starting with the more cautious attitude of many countries shown at the `Rio + 20' Conference and comparing them with the heady promises made at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, the Author shows that for many modern economies, implementation of `Green' movements has become a hard task as the issue of eradication of poverty comes into conflict and in that, the latter often wins. So, the question is left with these economies to decide whether they want to head towards Green Economy, or Great Economy, or Big Economy.He boldly addresses the Colonial character of Christianity imposed on the Indian sub-continent, which stressed the dualist concept of the Earth and Heaven, which puts emphasis on the salvation of the soul rather than that of Creation. The Author has tried to show linkage between Colonialism and Environmental damage, he further proposes for the review of inherited mindset of Indian Christians, that has become indifferent towards the Ecological Problems).He then charts the development of Indian Christian Theology and its great thinkers with particular reference to the second half of the 20th century and proposes a complete review for its deconstruction and replacement with a sound Biblical and Theological Methodology.This informative and thoughtful work also deals with Socio-Economic and Historical subjects and is thus meant for Ecologists, Historians, Economists, Christian Laity, Church Clergies, and Students & Researchers. An ordinary person will be left less informed without having read the book.Printed Pages: 328.
