Timeless and classic sermons on a vital topic for today.

With temperatures warmer than they have been in decades and major hurricanes and storms occurring with increasing frequency, the fragility of the environment is on everyone's mind these days.

For centuries, the Christian religion has preached a dominion of the earth, which has turned into exploitation of the environment in the name of religion. As the sermons in Earth and Word demonstrate, a vast portion of the Christian community does not endorse or condone the destruction of the environment in the name of God. This collection gathers the voices of many environmentalists, theologians, preachers, and activists who have spoken in support of saving the planet.

Included in this collection are compelling and insightful sermons from Wendell Berry, Thomas Berry, John Cobb, William Slone Coffin, Bill McKibben, Sallie McFague, Joseph Sittler, Barbara Brown Taylor, and many more. In each of these sermons, the authors explore the deep relationship between thinking religiously and thinking ecologically.
