Are Christians fulfilling the stewardship commandment of Genesis to care for God's household?

When we speak of the "environmental crisis" facing the planet, we reduce the coming catastrophe to a physical problem.  In Creation in Crisis, Joshtrom Kureethadam seeks to extend the current understanding of what is truly an ecological crisis to include ethical and spiritual perspectives, arguing that the crisis is not merely an environmental problem, but is truly 'eco-logical' (a discourse about our common home - oikos) in nature.

In its careful incorporation of the latest science around issues such as environmental degradation, pollution, climate change, and food production, this book also enters into dialogue with various disciplines in understanding the contemporary ecological crisis.  Creation in Crisis offers a depth of vision that yields up profound insights about our present milieu and the future of our common home.

Joshstrom Kureethadam is a Catholic priest and a professor at the Salesian Pontifical University in Rome.  His background is in cosmology, and he currently holds the chair of philosophy of science at the Salesianum.

He presents the science he elegantly lays out within a theological account of God as creatively, incarnationally, and eschatologically related to our common home.
A deeply troubling account of the ecological crisis, with a clear explanation for those without a background in science, and with an original discussion of the morality and theology that challenges all readers.
In its careful incorporation of the latest science related to issues such as environmental degradation, pollution, climate change, and food production, this book enters into dialogue with various disciplines in understanding the contemporary ecological crisis.
Demonstrates that the Earth as finite, the birthplace of all life, and demands the realization of human's needs in a mutually sustainable manner that enhances the wellbeing of all creatures. This book is most suitable for seminary, theological, and academic libraries.
Kureethadam’s chief contribution is to bring several disciplines together by summarizing the arguments for environmental activism from cosmology, climate science, social justice, and the doctrine of creation. There are few books on the market that bring such diverse fields together with integrity.
