Five Faces of Religious Environmentalism

Five Faces of Religious Environmentalism

(p.193) Chapter 7 Five Faces of Religious Environmentalism
A Greener Faith

Roger S. Gottlieb

Oxford University Press

This chapter shows the faces of five religious environmentalists. The leaders of these environmentalist groups express their personal roles, their religious identity, and their concern for the earth, which are all part of their lives. Despite many differences, certain basic and important similarities emerge. These include a wide ranging commitment to care for the human and the nonhuman alike, a faith in the possibility of deep change, and a refusal to despair—no matter what happens.
