How do religion and the natural world interact with one another? Grounding Religion introduces students to the growing field of religion and ecology, exploring a series of questions about how the religious world influences and is influenced by ecological systems.

Grounding Religion examines the central concepts of `religion' and `ecology' using analysis, dialogical exchanges by established scholars in the field, and case studies. The first textbook to encourage critical thinking about the relationships between the environment and religious beliefs and practices, it also provides an expansive overview of the academic field of religion and ecology as it has emerged in the past forty years.ã

The contributors introduce students to new ways of thinking about environmental degradation and the responses of religious people. Each chapter brings a new perspective on key concepts such as sustainability, animals, gender, economics, environmental justice, globalization and place. Discussion questions and contemporary case studies focusing on topics such as Muslim farmers in the US and Appalachian environmental struggles help students apply the perspective to current events, other media, and their own interests.ã

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Grounding Religion is a tightly constructed examination of how religion and ecology are interconnected and the key issues that emerge from their relationship. This volume is very well done and should become foundational for any study of theã religion-ecology matrix.' - Rosemary Radford Ruether, Claremont Graduate University and Claremont School of Theology, USA
