Overview

The increasingly pressing situation of Planet Earth poses urgent ethical questions for Christians. But, as Cynthia Moe-Lobeda argues, the future of the earth is not simply a matter of protecting species and habitats but of rethinking the very meaning of Christian ethics. The earth crisis cannot he understood apart from the larger human crisis-economic equity, social values, and human purpose are bound up with the planets survival. In a sense, she says, the whole Earth is a moral community. Moe-Lobeda lays out a new framework for the orientation of Christian ethics in her first chapters, culminating in a creative rethinking of how it is that we understand morally. With this "moral epistemology" in place, she unfolds her notion of "moral vision" and applies it to the present situation in a full-fledged Earth-honoring, justice-seeking Christian ethical stance.
