Planning and architecture have to be understood in relation to climate change and peak oil, and the concept of the common good is key to understanding how important this is. Leading on from his previous book, A Theology of the Built Environment, T. J. Gorringe provides a theoretical and political framework of the common good, applying this to the built environment. This framework is used to discuss and highlight issues regarding place, transport, food and farming, and as such explains the relation of Christianity to the built world in which we live. Exploring new themes in the context of the concern about climate change and resource depletion, Gorringe provides an innovative account, covering a wide range of source matter and illustrating the connections in modern theology and ethics.

T. J. Gorringe (University of Exeter)

T. J. Gorringe is Professor of Theological Studies at the University of Exeter. A Theology of the Built Environment (2002), his previous book with Cambridge University Press, was the first to reflect theologically on the built environment as a whole. He is also the author of God's Just Vengeance: Crime, Violence and the Rhetoric of Salvation (Cambridge University Press, 1996).

'In this compelling and lucid book, Tim Gorringe opens our eyes to the built environment as a key place where the struggle for a just world is focussed, and where we're all challenged to live gracefully and graciously.' The Rt Revd Graham James, Bishop of Norwich
