Visions of a New Earth
Religious Perspectives on Population, Consumption, and Ecology
  • By Harold Coward
One of the most significant topics of our time is the current eco-crisis of overpopulation, overconsumption (often called affluenza ), and environmental degradation. In Visions of a New Earth, eight world religion scholars and two creative international economists address these linked problems by bringing religious perspective into conversation with economics. They conclude that religion and other cultural forces must be mobilized to force humankind toward an epochal birthing of bio-reverence. Traditions discussed include Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Chinese, Native American, and African religions.
Contributors include Nawal H. Ammar, Harold Coward, Rita M. Gross, Catherine Keller, Paul F. Knitter, David C. Korten, David R. Loy, Daniel C. Maguire, Alberto Munera, S.J., Vasudha Narayanan, Jacob K. Olupona, Chun-fang Yu, and Laurie Zoloth."
