Updating a classic ground-breaking survey of religion's complex relationship to the environment, this new edition of This Sacred Earth reflects the last decade's tremendous growth and transformation of scholarly, theological, and activist religious environmentalism. Roger S. Gottlieb has added nearly forty new selections, retaining the strengths of the first edition and dramatically expanding the book's cross-cultural scope. From Christian ecotheology and Buddhist critiques of economic globalization to religious environmental activism and spiritual practices celebrating the sacredness of nature, the book includes careful scholarship, groundbreaking theology, historical analysis, and accounts of real-world struggles. Fully engaged with the world's religious traditions, This Sacred Earth is an invaluable teaching resource and inspiring introduction to religion's response to our global environmental crisis.
Roger S. Gottlieb is Professor of Philosophy at Worcester Polytechnic Institiute and is widely recognized for his work in environmentalism. He has a regular column in Tikkun, and has published in popular venues such as the Sunday Boston Globe and Orion Afield. He has written and edited books on Marxism, Religion and Environmentalism.
