Sustainability in Crisis : “It’s a beautiful little book, and as far as I know unique – at least until our own book comes out! – in that it sets out multiple religious views on the environment in parallel, neither synthesising them into something virtually meaningless, nor asserting that their own religion’s view, and it alone, is the one to follow…………….
“…….So – a very encouraging and helpful project, and I hope it inspires those in each of the three traditions to collaborate more in environmental thought.”
