Rev. Dr. D. Rathanakara Sadananda, General Secretary of CSI Synod, released the third volume of Earth Bible Sermons edited by Dr. Mathew Koshy Punnackad during the public function held in connection with the World Environment Day celebration on 5th June 2016 at CSI Synod Centre, Chennai. Rev.Rathnakar Sadananda said: “The Earth Bible Sermons follow the well-conceptualised and articulated hermeneutical approach that the Earth Bible project offered to read the Bible from earth's perspective. They are: The Principle of Intrinsic Worth; the Principle of Interconnectedness; the Principle of Voice; the Principle of Purpose; the Principle of Mutual Custodianship; the Principle of Resistance; the Principle of Incarnation; and the Principle of Promise. By doing so, the Earth Bible Sermons serve the purpose of bringing global theological discussions to congregational pulpits of the villages”.
Rt. Rev. Thomas K Oommen presided over the function. Dr. Mathew Koshy Punnackad, Hon. Director of Ecological Concerns of CSI Synod, thanked the gathering.
