My work focuses on the relationship between the earth and the sacred. Such a focus represents a new line of inquiry in contemporary intellectual life. While science and technology have traditionally been seen as the natural allies in ecological understanding, recent scholarship in the humanities notes the importance of religious worldviews in shaping attitudes toward the environment. For visitors to my page unaware of this emerging discipline, I hope here to introduce religion and ecology, a promising new field of inquiry.
