How does religion relate to our global environment? Religion and the Environment provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to this controversial question by covering the following important themes:

the religion-environment interface

pre- and post-industrial religious practices related to resource extraction and the rise of the Anthropocene

an analysis of religious response to the impacts of contemporary industrialization, globalization, and urbanization

religious thought, leadership, policy formation, and grassroots activism relative to the environment.

Religion and the Environment will offer students and general readers a sophisticated yet accessible exploration of the relationship between religion and the environment, through case studies ranging from climate change to the impacts of warfare. This engaging book will be an excellent addition to introductory courses and those approaching the topic for the first time.
