Just occasionally in a life of much reviewing one encounters a really major book... [a] theological blockbuster, clearly the fruit of vast reading and keenly intelligent reflection... there are very many riches in the book - explore them for yourself. (Christopher Southgate, Reviews in Science and Religion)
this is a most welcome contribution to current ecotheology, one that would certainly enhance further discourse. (Ernst Conradie, Theology) -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Hardcover.

Not for the weak of heart or mind.
on 26 October 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
I was warned about the scholarly style of this book. You can expect to re-read sentences over and over, go on line to look up the definition of words you never heard of before, but it is expected from a Yale Divinity School Associate Professor. I guess my German heritage for reading difficult books just got in the way. Jenkins basically reviews and critiques various great writers on the subject from Thomas Aquinas to Sergei Bulgakov. Very deep stuff. Not light reading, but worth the effort.

graced by ecologies of grace
on 31 January 2008 - Published on Amazon.com
This is an excellent new addition to my resources on eco-stewardship. As a clergy member of the Presbyterian church deeply concerned about the moral issue that is our current environmental global reality, I find this book both practical and refreshing. With the eloquance of a gifted writer, and grit of a versed theologian, Dr. Jenkins puts his practical global experience into a very useful framework for us "practioners" of theology and eco-stuff. I appreciate his logical breakdown of the field of eco-ethics into three- ecological spirituality, eco-stewardship, and ecojustice. All these areas are not only hot these days, but of real use for those of us clergy that are desperately seeking ways to link parish work and our heart felt eco-priorities. Kudos to Dr. Jenkins- and may his books keep flowing! I highly recommend this one. - Rev. Rob Mark

Systematic Theology and Environmental Philosophy Meet
on 20 January 2008 - Published on Amazon.com
Willis Jenkins engages Karl Barth, Thomas Aquinas, and Sergei Bulgakov--master theologians from all 3 major branches of Christianity--and puts them in a well-read and -considered dialogue with theories in environmental philosophy and ethics. If you have an interest in ways that serious systematic theology can engage with environmental concerns, this is the book for you.

Theological jargon and no content
on 13 August 2008 - Published on Amazon.com
I put very few books down, and this one was terribly disappointing. Written in thick theological jargon that conveys essentially nothing, the author remained aloof in his abstract theological world for the first seventy pages and tied none of his concerns back to real world science or environmental concerns. If you love the incoherent rambling style of academics where one sophisticated but empty sentence follows the next, then this book is for you. I tried my best but really found nothing substantive to talk about here. Christians should stop being so concerned about finding a legitimate ethic for the environment in their text and simply get on with the business of being ecological concerned. If you want a meaningful issues - deal with the real science and the practical issues facing the world, and leave this "theo-babble" alone.
