Deane-Drummond provides a comprehensive survey of the myriad forms of environmental theology, including biblical, Christological, theodicial, eschatological, and justice-oriented approaches to the field. Focusing not on ethical or spiritual concerns but rather upon the Christian engagement with contemporary environmental issues, the author also provides critical explorations of global responses to eco-theological debates.

About (from the publisher)

Concern for the environment has developed and intensified over the last decades to the point where it now dominates much of our contemporary political landscape and culture. The rise of religious environmentalism in particular adds its own distinctive voice to the debate, for it seeks to trace both the malaise and a potential solution to environmental understanding. In Eco-Theology, Celia Deane-Drummond offers a comprehensive resource book for this burgeoning field of enquiry that highlights and seeks to evaluate the merits or otherwise contemporary eco theologies. She introduces the reader to critical debates, tracing trends from around the globe and key theological responses, and encourages reflection and analysis through further reading sections at the end of each chapter and questions for discussion. It will prove an essential guide for students and general readers with a serious interest in the topic.
