In “Love God, Heal Earth” (St. Lynn’s Press, 2009) Sally G. Bingham poses the question of what it might take to power a great awakening about Earth’s environmental crisis.

Bingham, an Episcopal priest and Canon for the Environment in the Diocese of California, points out that until recently, science has been alone in sounding the alarms while many religious leaders have held back, viewing global warming as a purely secular issue. Now, in an unprecedented demonstration of unity and moral purpose, religious voices from across the spectrum – liberal, conservative, Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists – are joining in one of the largest movements in human history, declaring the environment to be an urgent matter of faith.

In “Love God, Heal Earth,” Bingham brings together 21 highly regarded spiritual leaders from diverse faiths to make the case for environmental stewardship and show how their faith communities are tackling the issue of religion and environment.

“‘Love God, Heal Earth’ is a historically important contribution. Its authors of diverse faiths recognize that protecting the planet and all of life is a transcendent responsibility – for both the scientists who study it and those of religious faith who are able to express its spiritual importance.” — E.O. Wilson, Harvard biologist and naturalist, author of “The Creation: An Appeal to Save Life on Earth”

“‘Love God, Heal Earth’ features some of the clearest and most compelling voices in the emerging creation care movement – a unifying and rallying point for people of faith from across diverse traditions.” — Jim Wallis, president of the Christian social justice organization Sojourners, author of “The Great Awakening”

“An important book veals the growing power of the religious environmental movement to address the central moral issue of our time: no less than the future of civilization itself!” — Lester R. Brown, founder of the Earth Policy Institute and author of “Plan B 3.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization”
