about

When we speak of the environmental crisis facing the planet, we reduce the coming catastrophe to a physical problem. In Rediscovering Our Home, Joshtrom Kureethadam seeks to extend the current understanding of what is truly an ecological crisis to include ethical and spiritual perspectives, arguing that the crisis is not merely an environmental problem, but is truly ‘eco-logical’ (a discourse about our common home – oikos ) in nature. In its careful incorporation of the latest science around issues such as environmental degradation, pollution, climate change, and food production, this book also enters into dialogue with various disciplines in understanding the contemporary ecological crisis, adding to this theological meditation a depth of vision that yields up profound insights about our present milieu and future home.
Joshtrom Kureethadam is a professor at the Salesian Pontifical University in Rome and a Catholic priest. His background is in cosmology, and he currently holds the Chair of Philosophy of Science at the Salesianum.
