"Does an admirable job of summarizing the main strands of Christian environmental theologies and highlighting the most valuable contributions of each. There is much to celebrate in this book! Scharper, like all of the best contributors to the conversation on religion and ecology, is motivated by a passionate concern for the "groaning" of creation; no less obvious is his urgent desire to include the downtrodden humans of the earth in his analysis. In this book he suceeds, not just in coherently summarizing a number of the most important voices in ecotheology, but also in giving us a blueprint for the changed consciousness necessary to motivate a conversion from our destructive earth-damaging behavior to a more earth-friendly way of living."--Sanford Lakoff "Worldviews: Global Religions, Culture And Ecology "
