Susan Bratton and a New Introduction to Religion and the Environment

Sam Mickey

This episode of Spotlights features Susan Bratton, PhD, a Professor at Baylor University in the Department of Environmental Science. She talks about her work at the intersection of religion and environmental ethics, particularly in light of her exciting new book, Religion and the Environment: An Introduction, which provides a thorough and thoughtful introduction to the field.  This new introductory text covers the religion-environment interface in pre- and post-industrial religious contexts, religious responses to the impacts of contemporary industrialization, globalization, and urbanization, and examples of religious thought, leadership, policy formation, and grassroots activism relative to the environment.
