Edited by Willis Jenkins and Whitney Bauman

The Spirit of Sustainability helps readers map out a "territory of values" - the moral worlds, axial concepts, and social practices - related to sustainability. In collaboration with the Forum on Religion and Ecology (FORE), an established network of leading scholars, it explores a wide range of topics and perspectives, from the promise and problems of approaching sustainable lifeways through global and indigenous religions, to major theories in philosophy and environmental ethics, and then to professional practices and social movements. This volume presents the various goals of sustainability ecological integrity, economic health, human dignity, fairness to the future, social justice and provides interpretive frameworks for reasoning through the combined challenges each goal presents, to both current and future generations.(via)
