"A personal and highly readable exploration of the environmental crisis and what insights can be brought from the theocentric perspectives on ethics for thinking and acting about environmental issues."—Rosemary Radford Ruether, retired, Georgia Harkness Professor of Applied Theology, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
"Gustafson has been able to step back from the charged debate about the environment and assess—with equal parts rigor and tenderness—what it means to be a human being living on a planet we did not create but increasingly dominate. This book is a treasure of calm and conviction."—Bill McKibben, author, The End of Nature
"Ever since the publication of Gustafson's Ethics from a Theocentric Perspective, we have awaited his treatment of humanity and the natural environment. We wanted most of all to know how to think about this momentous subject from a theocentric ethics perspective, with a view to the findings of science and the concerns of policy studies. Here it is. It was worth the wait."—Larry L. Rasmussen, Reinhold Niebuhr Professor Emeritus of Social Ethics, Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York
