"Celia Deane-Drummond's new book provides a wonderful resource for those who are new to ecological theology as well as for those who have been long involved. She maps the field in a way that is accessible and user-friendly. Her approach is critical, intelligent, and learned, the fruit of her grounding in science as well as in theology, and of love for creation as well as her strong commitment to the Christian tradition."
-The Rev. Dr. Denis Edwards
"I've read it in manuscript: now I want the book! Here is
theology earthed. Celia plants the planet firmly within the
providence of God. This book is popular in its appeal and
scholarly in its depth. It connects with the environmental
agenda and stretches the reader to reach new heights of
understanding on this vitally important subject."

"Celia Deane-Drummond has established herself as one of the foremost amongst a new generation of scholars working in the field of Christian eco-theology. This volume provides an erudite overview and a balanced assessment of the state of the debate after three decades of heated discourse. She also
provides a clear sense of direction for further reflection—with reference to the wisdom tradition. Here she weaves the Hebraic texts together with cosmic Christology, feminist views on Sophia and the pressing need for responsible decisionmaking in science and in civil society."
