    1. The term ecotheology came into prominence in the late twentieth century, mainly in Christian circles, in association with the emergent scientific field of ecology. Ecotheology describes theological discourse that highlights the whole "household" of God's creation, especially the world of nature, as an interrelated system (eco is from the Greek word for household, oikos). Ecotheology arose in response to the widespread acknowledgment that an environmental crisis of immense proportions was threatening the future of human life on the earth. Ecotheology also arose in response to what has been called "the ecological complaint" against Christianity.
