This text provides a survey of the critical connections between religion, nature and the environment. It includes writings from sacred texts and a broad spectrum of eco-theological selections as well as historical and contemporary selections from key authors and a multicultural range of sources. Traditional religious myths, creation stories, and conceptions of nature are surveyed - with selections from Jewish, Christian, Native American, Indian, African, Chinese and indigenous texts and commentators. This work also focuses on religion in an age of environmental crisis. Exploring religious rituals that help us respond to nature, the complex relations between religion, ecology and society, including the religious role in environmental political movements, are also examined.
