Anthropogenic climate change is among the most significant and far-reaching social issues of our time. Although climate scientists are near unanimous about potentially catastrophic consequences, mobilizing a meaningful response has proven to be a real challenge. Among the significant but understudied responses has been that of religious groups. Numerous statements on climate change by faith-based actors and institutionalized religious groups have occurred in recent years. This book fills the gap in research on faith-shaped action by religious institutions, groups and individuals. The collection covers different faiths' responses to climate change and how religious action and interfaith interaction operate locally and internationally when it comes to the environment. The book is wide-ranging in its coverage and thoroughly demonstrates the relationship between faith communities and environmental issues. The contributors are recognized experts in their fields and come from geographically and religiously diverse backgrounds.
