Voices of Hope in the Struggle to Save the Planet

By Marjorie Hope and James Young



Voices Of Hope In The Struggle To Save The Planet reveals the lives of individual men and women engaged presenting a renewed vision of our relationship to the earth, describing actions by faith-based environmental groups to nurture and protect the environment. Included are the lives and ideas of spiritual leaders and activists drawn from Judaism, Western and Eastern Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Taoism, Shinto, and the faiths of indigenous peoples. Each chapter includes a brief analysis of a particular faith's ecological teachings and description of the environmental problems of the country where a particular activist is living. Voices Of Hope In The Struggle To Save The Planet is compelling, informative, challenging, motivating, and very highly recommended reading for environmental studies, activists, policy makers, as well as the non-specialist general reader with an interest in religion and environmental issues.
