Abstract

Currently, the earth faces a global ecological crisis. Possible responses to major environmental issues have generated the modem environmental movement. The environmental movement has become one of the largest and most powerful social movements of our time. The movement is built upon a series of interrelated scientific, political, social ideas and efforts. Yet one idea often remains under explored: The environmental crisis has recently challenged Christian theology to formulate a response. This thesis explores the ways in which Christianity has developed and implemented contributions to the modem environmental movement.
