God, Creation and Climate Change: Spiritual and Ethical Perspectives (Lutheran University Press, 2009)

Climate change threatens the future of the planet and raises deeply spiritual and ethical questions. Biblical scholars, theologians and ethicists creatively develop perspectives that can make the significant changes in worldviews, practices and policies needed at this kairotic time.

The articles in this book seek to stir and motivate readers not only to face the urgency of the unprecedented global crisis of climate change as manifest in their contexts, along with the various social, economic and political issues related to it, but to reflect in news ways on the spiritual resources that are a part of the Christian and other traditions and are so crucial for empowering and sustaining us in facing and redressing challenge not only now but also for the futures.
