Concilium is an international theological journal published five times a year in five languages. With its origins in the renewal of Catholic theological thinking following the Second Vatican Council, "Concilium" draws together a wide range of the best of current leading theological writers from Europe, the Americas, Asia and Africa. It is a catholic journal in the widest sense: rooted firmly in the Catholic heritage, open to other Christian tradition and the world's faiths. Each issue of "Concilium" focuses on a theme of crucial importance and the widest possible concern for our time. "Eco-Theology" shows how theologians from around the world engage with the question of how to respond to the global ecological crisis and the natural and human-made disasters resulting from it. Topics include: 'Earth as Gaia - An Ethical and Spiritual Challenge' (Leonardo Boff), 'Ashes and Dust: On (not) Speaking about God Ecologically' (Anne Elvey), 'Toward and Inter-religious Eco-theology' (Felix Wilfred), 'Learning from the Earth: Reflections on Theological Education and the Ecological Crisis' (John Clammer), and 'Ethical Management of Natural Resources' (Jayapaul Azariah).
The reason why Concilium is unique, precious and catholic is that it is an international theological review with articles written by authors from all over the world. It helps reader to move beyond the theological reflections of their own cultural circle and wrestle with theological approaches located in other cultures.'Gregory Baum, Concordia University, Montreal
