In this volume, scholars from around the world read the story of Earth in key texts from the Psalms and the Prophets. Their readings challenge popular understandings of the Choaskampf myth, the theophany of Psalm 29 and the New Earth in Isaiah 65. Re-readings of Ezekiel expose the cruelty of divine justice extended to the natural world. Several articles by indigenous writers sensitive to the voice of Earth bring new insights to the potential meaning of texts like Psalm 104. Contributors include Lloyd Geering, Russell Nelson, William Urbrock, Laurie Braaten, Keith Carley, Anne Gardner, John Olley, Gunther Wittenberg, Kalinda Stevenson, Peter Trudinger, Arthur Walker-Jones, Norman Charles, Howard Wallace, Geraldine Avent, Madipoane Masenya and Abotchie Ntreh.
