quote from "Blessed Are the Consumers: Climate Change and the Practice of Restraint" by Sallie McFague -

"As our crises worsen, more and more people are questioning the reigning anthropology of insatiable greed, and they are coming to the conclusion that the prospects of the consumer culture have been greatly overrated and that serious change at a fundamental level— of who we think we are and what we must do— is necessary. Change at this level is incredibly difficult, and many people find it impossible. Yet it is precisely change at this fundamental level that most religions prescribe. Christians call it “conversion,” and it demands thinking and living differently than conventional society recommends."

quote from "Ask the Beasts: Darwin and the God of Love" by Elizabeth A. Johnson -

Although some still prefer to remain blind with denial, the fact is we have crossed a threshold into a new moment of human history dangerous to the well-being of the diversity of life on this planet.

quote from "Ask the Beasts: Darwin and the God of Love" by Elizabeth A. Johnson -

"a powerful anthropocentric paradigm in theology that shaped every aspect of endeavor. It cast christology, for example, in its mold; the good news of the gospel flowing from the death and resurrection of Christ offered hope to human beings while the great biblical theme of cosmic redemption flew by in silence. Every area of theology can be charted making similar restrictive moves. Even the theology of creation, once it gave due play to the appropriate truths, receded to become a backdrop for the human drama. The natural world was simply there as something God created for human use. Theology lost touch with the universe."
