About-

A new and urgent item on the agenda of churches around the world is the theological and ethical dimensions of the ecological crisis. Highlighted by the United Nations "Earth Summit" in Brazil, the issues covered in this volume raise unavoidable and fundamental questions of the life-style and Christian witness in the face of threats to the very survival of humankind and planet Earth.

The groundbreaking essays by more than two-dozen contributors in this book are divided into five sections: biblical witness, theological challenges, insights from ecofeminism, insights from indigenous people, and ethical implications.

Contributors include: Jose P. M. Cunanan, Philippines; Margot Kaessmann, Germany; Renthy Keitzar, India; K. C. Abraham, India; Tony Brun, Costa Rica; Milton B. Efthimiou, United States; Wesley Granberg-Michaelson, World Council of Churches; Kwok Pui-lan, Hong Kong; Larry Rasmussen, United States; Samuel Rayan, India; M.
