Description:     

Ecological concerns can occasion serious levels of depression and disillusionment, unless such ecology is truly “integral” in allowing for the spiritual resources that can come from religious faith. This book presents this larger religious horizon, so that the danger of ideological divisiveness and monodimensional mind-sets might be avoided. A genuinely integral ecology works in the largest possible horizon while being informed at every step by the contributions of those who have a particular expertise.

There will be inevitably opposing points of view even though there are new modes of collaboration to be discovered, and more inclusive and respectful conversations to be conducted. A new language of integral ecology is being spoken—one more worthy of the limitless mystery within which we exist. For too long, the language of faith has been a local dialect. But this language now has a chance to grow into a genuinely universal communication and gracious wholeness.

This book contributes to a continuing collaboration of theology and ecology so that language of Christian faith is neither cosmetic nor unearthly.
