Bratton, Susan Power. Christianity, Wilderness, and Wildlife: The Original Desert Solitaire
"This book reviews the long history of Christian wilderness spirituality and beneficial Christian interactions with wild nature. Beginning with the relevant Genesis texts, the volume documents the importance of wilderness as a location for spiritual events and suggests that wilderness has traditionally been the landscape where the divine may be most clearly discerned and directly encountered. It makes the case that our contemporary relationships with wild nature require an increased understanding of its value to God."
Gottlieb, R. A Greener Faith: Religious Environmentalism and Our Planet’s Future. Oxford, New York: Oxford University Press, Inc.
Gottlieb maps out the history of the religious environmentalism movement. In a time of mounting environmental crisis, his perspective holds people of every faith and background accountable for the state of the planet. Addressing the environment is a political, religious, and moral issue, and Gottlieb suggests that what we chose to do with it represents who we are and how we respect life. A Greener Faith connects spirituality, environmentalism, politics, and justice.
