Ecological destruction is taking place on such a scale that it prompts the need to make sense of the world in which we live and of this moment in history. This study explores the ecological significance of seeing the world as the whole household of the triune God and, more specifically, in terms of God's acts of house-holding (economy), including creation, salvation and eschatological consummation. What, then, is the place of the Earth in God's economy?
