Water: a Matter of Life and Death

Norman Habel and Peter Trudinger (eds)


This collection of essays contains an extensive diversity of topics, methodologies and contents on the same subject - water. It is at once scholarly, readable, accessible and practical. Water is a matter of life and death. Water wars could soon tragically replace oil wars. This book leads the reader to reflect and challenges us to do what we can do now. There is a diversity of authors from wide-ranging backgrounds, not just theologians or biblical scholars, but professionals from other fields such as law, agriculture, ecology, TEAR Australia, evolutionary biology, comparative literature and cultural studies who contribute a wealth of wisdom and knowledge providing rich and absorbing contents.
