Pressestimmen

"Many of the articles are nuanced, carefully crafted, and clearly advance specific arguments in the field of environmental ethics...The text will appeal to undergraduate students in ecology and religion classes or to seminarians searching for general synopsis of this conversation." Daniel McFee, Religious Studies Review, Vol. 33, No. 3, July 2007
