RESANE, Thomas. The theological responses to the socio-economic activities that undermine water as a resource. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2010, vol.66, n.1, pp.1-7. ISSN 2072-8050.

This article focuses, from a theological perspective, on both the ecological crisis and the politico-economic dealings in relation to water - especially with regard to the unsound ways in which governments deal with this resource. Texts are read from an anthropogenic perspective, as opposed to an anthropocentric one. Such a reading scenario calls for responses from theology with regard to the human position in creation. Humans are not a grand master plan of creation, but the completion and fulfilment of it, given an enormous sense of responsibility for the earth.The article argues that the human-earth relation should be understood from the point of responsibility based on solidarity, interdependency and stewardship. Theologians are challenged to embrace eco-ethics.

Palavras-chave : creation; earth; economic activities; humans; nature; resources; theology; water.
