Young suggests that theology can offer alternative views and approaches, but he does not dwell on this. His task is analytical, not prescriptive.
Some of the scholarship is a little weak, and parts of the book could be shorter. But as a theologian, Young deserves credit for addressing economics as a major factor in our ecological lives. Perhaps the integration of this into ecological ethics might lead to more realistic prescriptions by eco-theologians.
In my view this book is a significant contribution. I recommend it.
