Editorial Reviews

"The wide range of issues covered in this book is impressive and appealing to professionals and lay persons, who have some concern for the healthy survival of our environment. This is a timely book. It is well-written. Its clarity, content, and challenging rhythm make it compulsory readign for all who share a concern for the survival of our planet, and for a wholesome environment for future generations."-John Sahadat, University of Sudbury College, Laurentian University "Asian Profile, December 2002 "Gosling's work is clearly and passionately written, betraying careful scholarship in science and religious studies. It should help to clarify the role of religious traditions in incresing ecological awareness, and, it is to be hoped, in promoting some resolutions of the social and environmental problems our world faces."-Rev. David Atkinson, Bishop of Thetford "The Times Higher Education Supplement, December 2002
