About this book

What can Christianity as a tradition contribute to the struggle to secure the future well-being of the earth community? This collaborative volume, the third in the series on religions of the world and the environment, announces that an ecological reformation, an eco-justice reorientation of Christian theology and ethics, is prominent of the ecumenical agenda. The authors explore problematic themes that contribute to ecological neglect or abuse and offer constructive insight into, and responsive imperatives for, ecologically just and socially responsible living.

"The articles in this set of 28 papers and responses, part of Harvard's series on world religions and ecology, discuss how Christianity might, on the one hand, be an ally to the ecological movement and how, on the other hand, ecological problems are demanding changes in Christian theology, church organization, and ways of conceiving Christian life [...] The articles and responses, in general, are written by some of the most renowned people in the field and are of superb quality."
