Compiled in honor of esteemed teacher and scholar Ben. C. Ollenburger, The Earth Is the Lord’s brings together a diverse group of scholars with specializations across the Christian canon to address creation in the Bible, God as Creator, and God’s relationship with creation.

The essays in this volume cover topics ranging from creation theology, the symbolic devastation and renewal of land, cycles of creation, creation and peace, and the covenant as the purpose of creation. Moreover, while previous studies on this topic have focused almost exclusively on the Hebrew Bible, the current volume gives equal weight to the New Testament as a vital source for approaching the Bible’s theologies of creation.

The Earth Is the Lord’s advances the scholarly and ecclesial conversations surrounding creation and will be an indispensable resource for biblical studies scholars, seminary students, and Christian congregational leaders and teachers.

In addition to the editors, the contributors are Walter Brueggemann, Andrea Dalton Saner, Theodore Hiebert, Loren L. Johns, Safwat Marzouk, David Rensberger, Darrin W. Snyder Belousek, Willard Swartley, Patricia K. Tull, Thomas R. Yoder Neufeld, and Gordon Zerbe.
