The Ecology and Justice Series published by Orbis Books seeks to integrate an understanding of the Earth as an interconnected life system with concerns for just and sustainable systems that benefit the entire Earth. Books in the series concentrate on ways to:

  1. * Reexamine the human-Earth relationship in light of contemporary cosmological thought.
  2. * Develop visions of common life marked by ecological integrity and social justice.
  3. * Expand on the work of those who are developing such fields as eco-social ecology, bioregionalism, and animal rights.
  4. * Promote inclusive participative strategies that enhance the struggle of the Earth’s voiceless poor for justice.
  5. * Deepen appreciation for and expand dialogue among religious traditions on the issue of ecology.
  6. * Encourage spiritual discipline, social engagement, and the reform of religion and society toward these ends.

Viewing the present moment as a time for responsible creativity, this series asks authors to speak to ecojustice concerns from the Christian community, from the world’s other religious traditions, from secular and scientific circles, and from new paradigms of thought and action.

Advisory board members for the Ecology and Justice Series include: Mary Evelyn Tucker, John A. Grim, Leonardo Boff, and Sean McDonagh.
