There are few topics today that are so timely, and at the same time so momentous, as those concerning our relationship to the natural environment. This publication is the first substantial and most extensive collection of articles, in any language, to address environmental issues from the point of view of Orthodox Christianity. Its contributors include many of the most highly respected as well as influential theologians and philosophers in world Orthodoxy today. In addition, the collection combines new and original contributions with articles that have become classics in Orthodox circles, but which are currently unobtainable because they were first printed in small editions. Toward an Ecology of Transfiguration: Orthodox Christian Perspectives on Environment, Nature, and Creation is a landmark volume and a textbook reference, not just as pointing toward new horizons in environmental thought, but also as a contribution to the admirable effort to reconcile East and West.This is a book that should engage a very wide audience, in academic as well more popular circles—resonating not only with Orthodox audiences, but especially among those in search of a fresh approach to environmental theory that brings to bear the resources of ancient spirituality upon modern perplexities.
