"[By] Ross Kinsler and Gloria Kinsler".
Includes bibliographical references (pp. 164-166) and index.
"This book is the ideal resource for churches to nurture commitment and creativity by promoting `Jubilee literacy', a spirituality of forgiveness and reparation, and practical economic disciplines for individuals, households, and congregations. However, the Kinslers are clear that with this hope for renewal also comes a warning: Any theology that refuses to reckon with the realities of the increasingly unequal distribution of wealth and power in the human family today is both cruel and irrelevant. We Christians must talk about economics, and talk about it in light of the gospel". -- Foreword, p. xi.

Includes bibliographical references.
"The environmental movement has proved to be curiously ambiguouise as a moral crusade. In theory it should have been perfect. Everyone is for life and health, clean air and pure water, so how could there be any quarrel with a movement devoted to these ends ? Yet the poor, the oppressed minorities, the non-industrial nations exhibited massive disinterest. This disinterest often turned to active hostility as preparations went forward for the 1972 United Nations' Conference on the Human Environment. Why did this conflict happen ? Was it inevitable ? Is the tension between environmentalists ans the poor in the very nature of the case ? Are we learning again that there are no movements free of political conflict ? Or are there fundamental differences in assumptions about man, nature, and society underlying this debate ? These questions are addressed in the following pages from the perspective of the ecumenical community developed within and around the World Council of Churches, and arise out of a study process which involved diverse viewpoints at all stages." -- Author's Introductory Note.

"Drawing from his considerable experience in community organizing, education, and spiritual formation, James Conlon helps bridge the often divided worlds of those struggling for social justice and those seeking a creation centred spirituality. The name he gives this converging terrain is 'Geo-Justice'. As both a spiritual vision and a framework for political action, Geo-Justice seeks to heal the brokenness and make whole the relationships of humans with the Earth, with each other, and within our psyches". -- p. [2].

Notes
"[By] Ian Bradley".
"Foreword by Jonathon Porritt".
Includes bibliographical references.
"This book seeks to show that the Christian fait is intrinsically Green, that the good news of the Gospel promises liberation and fulfillment for the whole of creation and that Christians have a positive and distinctive contribution to make to the salvation of our threatened planet and the preservation of the natural environment. But in order to find this Green gospel at the heart of Christianity we need to clear away centuries of anthropocentric thinking which has put man rather than God at the centre of the universe and which has made the Church in the western world at least one of the prime aiders and abetters of the exploitation and pollution of the earth's resources". -- Intro., p. 1.
Contents: Foreword dated Lake District, October 1989 / Jonathon Porritt -- Preface / Ian Bradley -- Introduction -- God's concern for all creation -- The dance of creation -- The fall of nature -- The cosmic Christ -- The role of human beings -- Postscript: Some practical suggestions for greening the churches -- Notes.
Author is "a minister in the Church of Scotland" -- back cover.
