Healing All Creation: Genesis, the Gospel of Mark, and the Story of the Universe

Connell and Bartholomew spend comparatively little time with either Mark or Genesis, relying instead on the silences of the linked narratives. While useful for storytelling, this technique risks importing, rather than exploring, meanings. This presentation of ecotheology might interest casuals reader, but serious students might find it distracting.
