Demonstrates how understanding environmental science and theology can provide new resources for sustaining the Earth.

A compelling »sign of the times» is that our human experience today is defined in part by increasing ecological degradation.

Given the complexity of these environmental issues, this book argues that creative and strategic collaboration between theology and environmental science is necessary to find and implement practical solutions.

The authors argue a solid grounding in environmental science creates an understanding of the major environmental problems we face: global climate change, ozone depletion, depletion of the earth's resources, collapse of biodiversity, overpopulation and over-consumption, the presence of persistent toxins, and the challenges of achieving sustainability.

With humankind contributing to the source of many of these problems, the book also explores the many contributions theology can make to the healing of the world - including an understanding of God as creator and the roles of nature, grace, sin, and revelation.

With sidebars, discussion questions, and recommended readings, this book provides students and professors a text that nurtures both critical thinking and ethical action. [Språk: Engelska] Häftad
