Description

"Finding common ground between Christianity, Islam, and Judaism is a critical priority for the whole world-and nowhere is that common ground more evident or inspiring than on environmental issues."- Jonathon Porritt, co-founder, Forum for the Future "[A] very encouraging and helpful project, and I hope it inspires those in each of the three traditions to collaborate more in environmental thought."-Sustainability in Crisis, United Kingdom This introductory handbook combines beautiful and enlightening texts from each faith's religious teachings to address some of the most prominent environmental issues faced today, such as waste, climate change, and biodiversity. Each author brings a contemporary focus to the eternal challenge of caring for the environment and provides practical advice on how we can all do our share to protect it. Sharing Eden sets out to show how respect for the environment is at the heart of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Natan Levy is the environmental liaison for the Chief Rabbi's Office and the rabbinical expert for the London School of Jewish Studies' Responsibility Unit, both based in the Untied Kingdom. David Shreeve is the director of The Conservation Foundation, which he co-founded in 1982, and the environmental advisor to the Archbishops' Council of the Church of England. Harfiyah Haleem is a trustee of the Islamic Foundation for Ecology and Environmental Sciences (IFEES).
