ISBN 9781626160170.Willis Jenkins’ The Future of Ethics: Sustainability, Social Justice, and Religious Creativity is an impressive work of multidisciplinary scholarship. It answers recent calls among scholars of environmental humanities and others for a more integrated approach to environmental issues, one that brings academic disciplines into conversation with each other to address planetary problems. Jenkins deploys his expertise in Christian theology and environmental ethics, as well as a wide variety of sources from other disciplines, to address issues such as climate change, poverty, biodiversity loss, and exposure to chemical toxins. The introduction and first two chapters diagnose the challenges of thinking ethically in the Anthropocene and the limits of existing moral traditions to respond to those challenges; the middle two chapters provide a defense of Jenkins’ pragmatic methodology; and the final three chapters provide case studies of the reform projects that are being undertaken by communities facing specific environmental challenges.In addition to contributing to work in the environmental humanities, the book is also a Christian theologian’s contribution to the field of religion and ecology.
