Tony Hodgson Rural Theology For those who connect ecological writing with prohecies of doom and gloom, Gottlieb's book A Greener Faith comes as something of a tonic.
Celia Deane-Drummond, Science and Christian Belief This book provides a valuable review of religious engagement with the environment...This book is written in a lively style, airing counter arguments followed by replies to such arguments in a way that helps build up the position the author is trying to make.
Peter Scott, Ars Disputandi nicely produced and attractively priced...A Greener Faith indicates that what is required now is to offer fuller accounts of the practical differences that religious environmentalism might make. That is, we need now to develop the religio-politics of religious environmentalism. That this book manages this double achievement is an indication of its importance and will ensure that is widely read.
Willis Jenkins, Journal of the American Academy of Religion ...this book is a provocatively useful contribution to the green public square, calling for its denizens to welcome the emergence of religion in their midst, and implicitly notifying religion scholars of its increasing importance.
Morning Star Gottlieb's beautifully written and carefully researched work is essential reading for people of faith, environmentalists, scholars and anyone who is concerned about our planet's future.
International Journal of Environment and Pollution It is valuable reading for environmentalists, scholars and the many among us who are concerned about the future of our planet.
Northern Echo ...a very hopeful message and puts a whole new slant on the meaning of fundamentalism.
