This study interweaves philosophical, scientific, religious and cultural factors to reveal why non-human animals and nature are objects of moral concern and how our well-being depends on harmony with nature as it was created. This argument is unique in its comprehensiveness, its overt reliance on traditional forms of religious faith, and its account of how those with conflicting ethics can work together to end the current, foolish abuse of nature.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"...well-intentioned, wide-ranging..." Roger S. Gottlieb, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Journal of American Academy of Religion

"I believe this to be a great and important book. It presents the most comprehensive and convincing argument I have seen from inside the academic discipline of ethics for redirecting environmental ethic--as well as academic ethics more generally--back to the scriptural sources of western values. It is a stunning and vital argument." Peter Ochs, University of Virginia

"The mostly straightforward material in the first part will be useful for upper-division undergraduates and graduate students interested in environmental ethics.... [The] last two sections will be especially useful to theologians and religious studies students who aant to think about environmental ethics within the framework of Reformed theology." Choice

Book Description

Nature, God and Humanity weaves together philosophical, scientific, religious and cultural considerations to show why non-human animals and nature in general are proper objects of moral concern and how our well-being depends on harmony with nature-as-created. This argument is unique in its comprehensiveness, its overt reliance on traditional forms of religious faith, and its account of how those holding conflicting ethics of nature can work together to end our current, foolish abuse of wild nature.

This book is an intelligent analysis of ethical issues our ecological responsibilities written with clarity and depth.

It convincingly and effectively traces these issues with logic rather than passion.
