Synopsis:

This book is about the complicated and provocative ways nature, science, and religion intersect in real settings where people attempt to live in harmony with the physical environment. Scholars of philosophy, religious studies, and science and technology have been at the forefront of critiquing the roles of religion and science in human interactions with the natural world. Meanwhile, researchers in the environmental sciences have encountered disciplinary barriers to examining the possibility that religious beliefs influence social–ecological behaviors and processes simply because the issue resists quantitative assessment. The contributors to this book explore how scientific knowledge and spiritual beliefs are engaged to shape natural resource management, environmental activism, and political processes.

Review: This fascinating book admirably succeeds in navigating the complexities of a challenging and conflicted landscape. It refreshingly provides new nuanced understandings grounded in a set of penetrating case studies. These engaged and engaging scholars adeptly illuminate some of the ways that people of religious faith are considering environmental matters while others including environmentalists are considering the relevance of religious faiths for environmental concerns. This book is most welcome and valuable as a pioneering multidisciplinary contribution to the new intellectual and pragmatic frontier scrutinizing the dynamic interrelationships among religions and ecologies. --Leslie E. Sponsel, author, Spiritual Ecology: A Quiet Revolution

The strength of the volume lies in the case studies and on-the-ground field examples of the nuanced and complex relationship between practiced religion and local environmental concerns.... [Nature, Science, and Religion] can add to the emerging collection of in-depth anthropological investigations of environmental conflict and how religious beliefs, values, and practices provide support for citizen action. --Stephanie Kaza, University of Vermont

The book is a strong contribution to the literature on the general topic of religion and environment. --Julie Velásquez Runk, University of Georgia

Stellar job of tying together the complex intersections that shape societies and the environment.... The text is also objective, insightful, and long overdue. --T. Johnson, Choice, December 2012, vol. 50, no. 04

The book is a strong contribution to the literature on the general topic of religion and environment. --Julie Velásquez Runk, University of Georgia
