Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Updating a classic ground-breaking survey of religion's complex relationship to the environment, "This Sacred Earth," Second Edition reflects the last decade's tremendous growth and transformation of scholarly, theological, and activist religious environmentalism. Roger S. Gottlieb has added nearly forty new selections, retaining the strengths of the first edition and dramatically expanding the book's cross-cultural scope. From Christian ecotheology and Buddhist critiques of economic globalization to religious environmental activism and spiritual practices to celebrate the sacredness of nature, the book includes careful scholarship, groundbreaking theology, historical analysis, and accounts of real world struggles. Fully engaged with both the world's religious traditions and the worldwide environmental crisis, This Sacred Earth is an invaluable teaching resource and inspiring introduction to religion's complex relationship to the environment.
