Abstract

Sabbath is a biblical framework for global common good and a reliable basis upon which the human vocation in the 21st century can be renewed. This thesis argues that Sabbath, with roots in the primeval creation narrative, reveals the manner in which humanity is to respond to God in the context of the environmental crisis, is to include the whole created order, future as well as present, in the category of neighbour deserving of love care and equity.
