Item Description...
The ecological crisis is a serious challenge to Christian theology and ethics because the crisis is rooted partly in flawed convictions about the rights and powers of humankind in relation to the rest of the natural world. James A. Nash argues that Christianity can draw on a rich theological and ethical tradition with which to confront this challenge.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great guy, great teacher, great ethicist  Mar 26, 2002
James Nash is a great teacher. I have him in class and find him amusing, challenging, and open to others who's opinions differ from his own. Loving Nature is a great book that takes the economics-environmental crisis seriously.
easy read, important message  May 22, 2000
Sorry it is out of print. it is not only an insightful account of ecological responsibility in light of theological understanding but also a practical guide to Wesleyan theology in particular. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in ecological issues.
A balanced & insightful work on Christian Environmentalism  Dec 27, 1998
For several years I have been reading extensively in the area of Christian Environmentalism. These works range from popular to highly technical, from approaches that are fairly conservative to more progressive. I have not been completely satisfied with any of them, until I found a copy of James Nash's Loving Nature. It is by far the best book I have read on the topic. The perspective is balanced, thoughtful, insightful, and theologically sound. It is especially suitable for the Wesleyan theological tradition, to which I am belong. Nash's work is essential reading for anyone interested in Christian Environmental studies, whether they be theologians, scientists, or concerned laypersons! I recommend it especially to Christian Environmentalists, but it suitable to anyone who wants to explore an ethical approach to the Environmental crises. I used the book as required reading in a course I taught in January 1999 at Eastern Nazarene College ("A Christian Perspective on the Environment").
