Item Description...
Overview
This award-winning book provides a comprehensive approach to issues of social cohesion and ecological concern, synthesizing insights from religion, ethics, and environmental science in a single vision for creating a sustainable community of Earth. Larry Rasmussen first scans our global situation and the threats of life on the planet posed by rampant industrialism. Next, he turns to the worlds of religious faith and human symbolism, gleaning from them the resources for a "conversion to earth" so necessary to global survival. Finally Rasmussen offers a constructive ethic, a program of "Earth Action," that can shape a global movement toward sustainable community. Larry L. Rasmussen is Reinhold Niebuhr Professor of Social Ethics at Union Theological Seminary, New York City.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Ethics with heart and soul  Sep 3, 2002
Larry Rasmussen has done an excellent job of 'connecting the dots' in his analysis of the current state of Earth community. His analysis is thorough and holistic, as are the solutions he proposes, howbeit tentatively. His passion for Earth community comes through loud and clear, and one can hardly help but be moved by the depth of his compassion. Here we truly have a proposal for an ethic with heart and soul It is not a fast, easy read, however, and at times the text runs a bit dense. Overall, however, it is one of the finest books on Earth ethics--or ethics in general--that I have read.
