About-

The book explores how African Christians in Ghana can think eco-theologically about the nexus of mining, waste pollution, water pollution, and land degradation. In 2017, the government of Ghana banned illegal mining and declared war against any activity that does not complement environmental protection and conservation of natural resources. The Christian church needs academic resources to support the campaign against the destruction of the land, water bodies, and environment. The papers presented generate theological imaginations in shaping the political campaign against the destruction of the land and the environment. Reflection on areas related to the theme includes: “The Concept of Land in the Bible”; “The Christian Church and the Galamsey Menace in West Africa”; “The Fulani Cattle Headsmen and Care for the Land”; “The Bible and the Environment: Towards an Agenda for Eco-theology in African Theological Institutions”; “Stewardship of the Land”; “The Menace of Mining in Ghana”; “Destruction of Water Bodies in Ghana”; and “The Menace of Plastic Waste in Ghana.” This volume will serve as a textbook for theological students, the church, and other governmental agencies.
