    The Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology is an international multireligious project contributing to a new academic field and an engaged moral force of religious environmentalism. With its conferences, publications, monthly newsletter, and website, it explores religious worldviews, texts, and ethics in order to contribute to environmental. Ecology and Religion (Foundations of Contemporary Environmental Studies Series) (Paperback) By John Grim, Mary Evelyn Tucker. Island Press, , pp. Publication Date: January 2,

    Seven major scholars discuss the perspectives that the fields of literature, history, religion, philosophy, environmental ethics, and anthropology bring to the natural environment and our place in it. The book represents a continuation of the Center for the Study of World Religions’ highly regarded Religions of the World and Ecology series. An edited volume titled, Worldviews and Ecology, compiled in , contains articles reflecting on views of nature from the world’s religions and from contemporary philosophies, such as process thought and deep ecology. 24 In this same vein, in , J. Baird Callicott published Earth’s Insights which examines the intellectual resources of.

    Subsequent chapters examine the emergence of religious ecology, as views of nature changed in religious traditions and the ecological sciences. Yet the authors argue that religion and ecology are not the province of institutions or disciplines alone.   In their book Ecology and Religion, they argue that the religious component is a 'missing link,' 'an important lens whereby humans can understand and reenvision their roles as participants in the dynamic process of life.' In volumes of this genre, their virtue must mirror their vice—that of being both sketchy and simultaneously insightful.
