Ecology and Religion

Island Press
From the Psalms in the Bible to sacred rivers in Hinduism, the natural
world has been integral to the world’s religions. John Grim and
Mary Evelyn Tucker argue that today’s growing environmental
challenges make the relationship ever more vital. The authors
explore the history of religious traditions and the environment, and
the emergence of religious ecology. They then describe four fundamental
aspects of religious life: orienting, grounding, nurturing, and
transforming. Readers see how these phenomena are experienced in a
Native American religion, Orthodox Christianity, Confucianism, and
