Sacred Nature examines the crisis of environmental degradation through the prism of religious naturalism, which seeks rich spiritual engagement in a world without a God. Author Jerome Stone presents and defends the concept of religious naturalism, clearly introducing past work on this topic. He makes a case for the role of religious naturalism in addressing environmental crises, evaluating the merits of public prophetic discourse that uses the language of spirituality and transcendence. This book is designed for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students, as well as scholars specializing in contemporary religious thought or environmental studies.
