This book is about ecofeminism and its encounter with theology, predominantly that of Christian theology in Euro-western contexts. It introduces and explores ecofeminism and the encounter. The goal is to understand the significance and implications of ecofeminism and its contribution and challenge to theology. A further goal is to assist ecofeminist theology, or theologies, to be more effective in preventing ecological ruin, assisting women's struggles for freedom and supporting the flourishing of all life on earth.

Ecofeminism represents ways of discerning associations of many kinds between the feminist and ecological movements, and between the oppression and domination of both women and the earth. Ecofeminism is an insight, referring to critical analyses, political actions, historical research, intuitions and ideals. The ecological crisis is creating a pivotal moral and religious challenge, and new contexts for theology. There is a renewed spiritual sensitivity towards the natural world. We are in a time of a spiritual awakening, wherein the earth and all life are experienced, as sacred, where it is possible to experience awe and wonder, and encounter the ineffable. Ecofeminist theologies are at the intersection of these ideas and experiences. They are the efforts of particular people who see and experience possibilities for greater life, more justice and freedom. They do not accept that injustice and ecological ruin are inevitable. Ecofeminist efforts are directed towards reducing further ecological and social devastation, and awakening consciousness to the immense beauty and elegance of all life on this fragile yet awesome blue-green planet.

Review:

Piece by Heather Eaton (double page spread). Volum e30, Number 02 (Catholic New Times)

'...contains thought-provoking and inspiring passages.' (Antje Jackson Esssat News)

"...the strongest section of [Eaton's] book is thefirst chapter in which she lays out the groundwork for ecofeminism. She definesecofeminist terminology clearly and well. And certainly people of all faithsmust reconsider, or continue to consider, their relationships to the Earth.They should, as Eaton urges, encourage 'the exchange between science andreligion' and understand the extent of the ecological crisis." — The Catholic Register, December 11, 2005 (The Catholic Register)

"Ecofeminism has quickly become a multidisciplinary and increasingly international insight. It is an intersection point, where those with deep concerns for the world can find comrades and allies, and indeed challenges. Its history and development is one way to appreciate the scope of this lively phenomenon called "ecofeminism"."- Catholic New Times, January 29, 2006

(Catholic New Times)

'...Heather Eaton offers an introduction to ecofeminist theologies which is both scholarly and accessible.' 'It offers insights into areas of theological thinking which have hitherto been neglected/ignored by male-stream academic theology.'

Epworth Review (Natalie K Watson)

"Heather Eaton has written an accessible overview of the history, development and variety of ecofeminist theologies.... a comprehensive and accessible introduction to ecofeminist theology for laity and for theology students. She explains in plain language the basic issues and debated within ecofeminist theology, and gives a helpful introduction to its historical development and diverse approaches. Her pragmatic and passionate emphasis upon ecological activism highlights the importance of engaged ecofeminist theology. Eaton leaves the reader with hermeneutical questions that can be used to evaluate not only ecofeminist theology, but all approaches to theology as she encourages us to seriously consider our impact on this earth."- Loraine MacKenzie Shepherd, Touchstone, September 2006

(Touchstone: A Journal Of Mere Christianity)
