Deep Ecology and World Religions: New Essays on Sacred Ground. Bringing together essays on the relationship between traditional world spirituality and the contemporary environmental perspective of deep ecology, this landmark book explores parallels and contrasts between religious values and those proposed by deep ecology. In examining how deep ecologists and the various religious traditions can both learn from and critique one another, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, Judaism, Catholicism, Islam, Protestantism, Christian ecofeminism, and New Age spirituality are considered.

Divine Rebels: American Christian Activists for Social Justice. Chronicles the efforts of American Christian activists who agitate for a world free of racism, patriarchy, bigotry, retribution, ecocide, torture, poverty, and militarism. While pundits speak of the “Religious Right,” this is the underreported story of American Christians who are progressive because they are religious. By profiling social justice activists, Divine Rebels articulates a forward-thinking, faith-based alternative to both the conservative drone warping religion as well as the political left’s cynicism.

The Ecological Community. Explores important and previously unexplored responses to the environmental crisis. 'The premise,' writes editor Roger Gottlieb, 'is that the environmental crisis challenges the presuppositions of, and creates a rich field of creative work in, philosophy, politics, and moral theory.’ The eighteen essays included in this volume are compelling interrogations of the existing wisdom and explore environmental challenges for political theory and philosophy, environmental theory and moral questions, and current conflicts in environmental theory and practice.

Engaging Voices: Tales of Morality and Meaning in an Age of Global Warming. Our ecological dilemmas provoke powerful emotions and deeply contested views. How can we live together, or even talk together, when we cannot listen to people who think differently? Gottlieb explores this question in a collection of distinct but related philosophical short stories. Fictional characters wrestle with the value of nature, the roles of science and religion in environmentalism, and political choices facing activists. Readers will examine personal barriers to listening to those “on the other side.” As Kindle | More…

The Oxford Handbook of Religion and Ecology. In the face of the environmental crisis, believers from all faith traditions have come to recognize that religion's relation to ecology is of critical importance. Vital new theologies and ecologically oriented visions of God, Enlightenment, and human beings have arisen. Religious morality has expanded to include human relations to other species and ecosystems.

Religion and the Environment. In the last two decades, a new form of religiously motivated social action has emerged. Interaction between religion and environmental concern has resulted in explosive growth of ecotheological writings, institutional commitment by organized religions, and environmental activism oriented to religious ideals. Clergy in most denominations have received guidance from their leaders that the environment – no less than sexuality, poverty, or war and peace – is now a basic and compelling religious matter. Four volumes cover virtually every aspect of the field. More…
