All My Holy Mountain

All My Holy Mountain

Power, Identity, and Reclamation from a Theocentric Perspective

(p.105) 5 All My Holy Mountain
Sacred Mountains

Andrew R. H. Thompson

University Press of Kentucky

The goal of this book’s theocentric approach is not only to relativize human interpretations and imaginations but also to articulate more God-centered ones based on God’s values and purposes. This chapter describes theocentric perspectives that reshape imaginations of power and powerlessness, insiders and outsiders, and destruction and reclamation. For each set of ideas, the author summarizes a theocentric view of the issue and defends the applicability of the theocentric view to MTR and Appalachia by indicating how this perspective resonates with a variety of other perspectives on Appalachia. Finally, he suggests some practical implications for Christian responses to MTR and offers specific examples from the region.

Keywords:   theocentrism, reclamation, imagination, Appalachia
