    Abstract

    In this article, we set out some considerations around war, peace and environment, with a focus on the twentieth and twenty-first century phenomenon of “security anxiety”, with particular reference to Australia and our regional context. Second, we give two examples of Christian theological response to these considerations: the first biblical (focusing on the Book of Revelation); the second christological (focusing on the concept of “deep incarnation”). Then, we suggest some factors that might contribute to a Christian approach to a cultural transformation adequate to respond to the complex interweaving of war, security anxiety, colonial violence and climate change in our region.
