Edited by Libby Bassett. This publication reflects on the numerous links between faith and the preservation of our planet Earth. It offers an overview of lessons that the various faith traditions provide through the profound respect they teach for our planet. It presents a panorama of Earth issues and success stories on: fresh water, oceans and coasts, climate change, protecting the land, biodiversity and biosafety, toxic wastes and chemicals, consumerism, and globalization. Earth and Faith is the result of a unique effort to continue the dialogue between the scientific and faith communities from which is hoped will emerge a greater commitment to take responsible actions for the protection of our environment.(UN Environmental Programme; Markings Present; Heavy Shelfwear edition, 2000).
