Since the 1960s, theologians have been involved in efforts to guide Christians to reflection and action in light of planetary peril. The contributors to this volume illustrate how Friedrich Schleiermacher�s theological work could fulfill that need. Schleiermacher�s theology, they contend, finds its culmination in Christian social action and is remarkably conducive to ecological thinking in the modern world.
Each chapter deals with a particular locus in Schleiermacher�s systematic theology, focusing on its implications for sustainable living. In so doing, Schleiermacher and Sustainability offers a sophisticated account of Schleiermacher�s thought that will upend many estimations of his value for current constructive theology and provide a potent resource for those seeking to integrate ecological living into the marrow of their daily existence.
