Product Description

This award-winning book provides a comprehensive approach to issues of social cohesion and ecological concern, synthesizing insights from religion, ethics, and environmental science in a single vision for creating a sustainable community of Earth. Larry Rasmussen first scans our global situation and the threats of life on the planet posed by rampant industrialism. Next, he turns to the worlds of religious faith and human symbolism, gleaning from them the resources for a "conversion to earth" so necessary to global survival. Finally Rasmussen offers a constructive ethic, a program of "Earth Action," that can shape a global movement toward sustainable community. Larry L. Rasmussen is Reinhold Niebuhr Professor of Social Ethics at Union Theological Seminary, New York City.
