Ecological Ethics and Biblical Studies

The Ecological Ethics and Biblical Studies research group provides a forum for dialogue about the ethical insights that our Christian communities can find in the Bible to transform character and practice within the ecosystems in which we live. The group engages extended discussion between scholars and practitioners on ecological ethics from a biblical studies perspective. Each year will focus on a different ethical dimension (hope, justice, and wisdom). All are invited to attend and take part in the discussion. For further information, please contact Alexander W. Breitkopf ( and Alexander C. Stewart (
