"Liberating Nature is exactly the kind of good work that needs to be done--liberation theology done at the intersection of economy and environment, by and for affluent North Americans."
--Larry Rasmussen, Reinhold Niebuhr Professor of Social Ethics, Union Theological Seminary, New York
"Paul King and David Woodyard make a compelling case that economics and ecology cannot be pursued in isolation from each other. This will be an invaluable book on campus and in the church for introducing the complexity of this new challenge in an artful and engaging prose."
--M. Douglas Meeks, Cal Turner Chancellor Professor of Theology and Wesleyan Studies, Vanderbilt Divinity School
"In a blend of perspectives too long separated among scholars, King and Woodyard have dared to claim that economists, ecologists, and liberation theologians need each other if they are to help our human species understand how all the species of earth need each other. For its framing of this expanded version of liberation theology, the book makes a powerful contribution to our common earthly future."
--Donald W Shriver Jr., Professor of Ethics and President Emeritus, Union Theological Seminary, New York
"Accessible, clear, and inclusive of middle-class realities, this book connects liberation themes with practical ways to restructure the economy to promote sustainable life for all."
--Carol Johnston, author of The Wealth or Health of Nations: Transforming Capitalism from Within.
