Bauckhaum reviews virtually all the biblical material that relates to the natural world. His focus is on the relationship of human beings to creation. Instead of humans being the apex of creation, he suggests that humans are part of creation, not above it but within it. Humans have an ethical responsibility to care for creation not rule it and use it for human purposes.
To support these ideas, Bauckham analyzes Genesis 1 and Job 38-41, showing how the authors of these works place humans along side the rest of creation. He then looks at Psalm 104 and Psalm 148 as paradigms of how non-human creation glorifies God in its own right. Creation's praise of God becomes a model of praise for the human world to emulate.
Some of Baukham's most helpful material discusses the biblical concept of wilderness. Rather than a dangerous, empty, and frightening place, it is simply the natural world that is not cultivated, a non-humnaized nature with a value of its own.
Baukham concludes by pointing out that Jesus joined the community of creation. He will ultimatley triumph over the forces of chaos in creation and then bring healing to the human relationship with all of creation.
I looked at a number of books on the topic of the Biblical view of the environment. Baukham's stood out from the others by its solid biblical perspective and its readability. The material is exegetically based and the speculations and interpretations are labeled as such.
