Abstract

From the perspective of the Erath, death and decay leads inevitably to the generation of new life. However, humans, especially in the West, seek to deny death.The irony is that, by emphasising instead an ultra-materialist life, we contribute to a material culture of over-consumption that in fact promises death.
The recognition that the Earth can store up death, both as compost and toxin, forms the basis for this chapter's interpretation of Luke 12.
