Abstract

These are very welcome titles from WWF UK's expanding range of environmental materials with a focus on religious education. In general the books highlight both doctrine and action, providing a future agenda for further development. There are no books with Sikh or Bahá’í perspectives ...Overall, the series gives a positive impression of the contribution religion could make in future environmental protection. Religions may have in them the seeds of future hope - if only they reshape their agendas to allow principles to address new circumstances where their respective historic traditions do not offer solutions. Plus later postscript.
