Toward a Christian Ecological Ethic: The Lesson of Old Testament Israel's Dialogic Relations with Land, History, and God

Michael Kraftson-Hogue


By drawing from Walter Brueggemann's land theology and Mikhail Bakhtin's theory of dialogism, the purpose of this essay is to enrich the project of developing a comprehensive Christian ecological ethic. Michael Kraftson-Hogue's essay began as a senior thesis researched under the guidance of Hope College Professor Steven Bouma-Prediger and was earlier presented in working-draft form at the Fall 1996 Mideast Christianity and Literature Conference. Mr. Kraftson-Hogue will commence studies at Princeton Theological Seminary in fall 1998.
