Our planet is in trouble, and it will take an amazingly large and powerful force to shift into a more sustainable way of living. Cohen-Kiener poses that people of faith have the numbers, the passion, and the mandate to do itand that nothing else is strong enough to counterbalance "business as usual."
Claiming Earth as Common Ground gathers insights from ecology coalitions, emerging theologies, and spiritual and environmental activists to rally and inspire people from diverse faith traditions to live into the challenge. Questions for discussion and action are included to help religious people and groups focus on specifics they can do that, collectively, have the power to save the planet.
