Chapter 4


Chapter 4- Standing room only for the creatures of the Earth

In this chapter we focus on human population, biodiversity loss and peak oil. We consider the loss of the rain forests and the impact of urban sprawl. In response to this we look at the concept of creation in bondage as set out in Romans 8.
