Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thomas S. Derr argues that most recent books on environmental ethics are implicitly, and sometimes explicitly, unfriendly to Christianity. Christian faith and the Western religious tradition are accused of an exploitative attitude toward the natural world which has engendered business and economic policies and institutions that have put us on the road to ruin. Derr argues that a human-centered environmental ethic accords with common sense, remains faithful to traditional Christian ethics, and avoids the anti-human dangers which must await if we succumb to the critics.<P>Significant critical responses to this position are provided by James A. Nash and Richard John Neuhaus, to which Derr presents a rejoinder.

Synopsis:

The international political and economic scene has changed dramatically in recent years; the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet Union are among the most visible changes that have swept through Europe and other parts of the world. As we approach a new millennium, we face a world that is increasingly interdependent and globalist in perspective. What are the implications of these changes for Christian social ethics? Does Christian ethics have anything useful or relevant to say in the face of these changes? The Abingdon Press Studies in Christian Ethics and Economic Life series is intended to address such questions by providing teaching resources for upper-level college and seminary courses in christian ethics that focus on the analysis and reconstruction of basic ethical perspectives and principles in our post-Marxist, highly technological, and increasingly interdependent global civilization.
