Abstract

The devotion of Alex Kiss to the environment and its legal protection must be understood as inextricably intertwined with his Christian faith. Taught and inspired by his father's work for the Protestant Church in Hungary, he developed a love of creation and sense of responsibility towards it. Not long ago, he made a presentation on environmental protection and the Book of Revelation, for an anniversary celebration of St. John's apocalyptic vision. It is with this background in mind that the following essay was written (in 1998) in honor of and as a gift to Alex. It attempts to bring together for study the many Biblical references to nature and human relations to it. Therein is the basis for many years of future discussions.
