Planetary Solidarity brings together leading Latina, womanist, Asian American, Anglican American, South American, Asian, European, and African woman theologians on the issues of doctrine, women, and climate justice. Because women make up the majority of the world’s poor and tend to be more dependent on natural resources for their livelihoods and survival, they are more vulnerable when it comes to climate-related changes and catastrophes. Representing a subfield of feminist theology that uses doctrine as interlocutor, this book ask how Christian doctrine might address the interconnected suffering of women and the earth in an age of climate change. While doctrine has often stifled change, it also forms the thread that weaves Christian communities together. Drawing on postcolonial ecofeminist/womanist analysis and representing different ecclesial and denominational traditions, contributors use doctrine to envision possibilities for a deep solidarity with the earth and one another while addressing the intersection of gender, race, class, and ethnicity. The book is organized around the following doctrines: creation, the triune God, anthropology, sin, incarnation, redemption, the Holy Spirit, ecclesiology, and eschatology.

'Dying for Water' details the causes and consequences of an environmental problem which looks set to become a major crisis in the twenty-first century. Human activity is polluting water in rivers, lakes and oceans around the world. In Ireland, severe agricultural pollution has led to a dramatic deterioration in water quality during the past 40 years. Agriculture, industry and tourism all place huge pressure on water supplies worldwide. Oceans are being over-fished and polluted at an unprecedented rate, so that deep water eco-systems are destroyed even before we discover their existence. However, the shortage of clean water is not merely an environmental issue. Recent conflicts over access to water between Israel and Palestine, and between India and Bangladesh, for example, suggest that water promises to be to the twenty-first century what oil was to the twentieth century. Finally, Sean McDonagh explores the role of water in the Bible and the Christian churches.-- BOOK JACKET.
