- DescriptionEcojustice, social justice, and the Christian conscience Key Features: Mapping the ethical terrain of an imperiled planet Convincingly showing how ecojustice relates to ecomic justice Rethinking Christian ethics in light of the ecological crisis The increasingly pressing situation of Planet Earth poses urgent ethical questions for Christians. But, as Cynthia Moe-Lobeda argues, the future of the earth is t simply a matter of protecting species and habitats but of rethinking the very meaning of Christian ethics. The earth crisis cant be understood apart from the larger human crisis - ecomic equity, social values, and human purpose are bound up with the planet's survival. In a sense, she says, the whole earth is a moral community. Reorienting Christian ethics from its usual anthropocentrism to an ecocentrism entails a new framework that Moe-Lobeda lays out in her first chapters, culminating in a creative rethinking of how it is that we understand morally. With this moral epistemology in place, she unfolds her tion of moral vision and applies it to the present situation in a full-fledged earth-horing, justice-seeking Christian ethical stance.
