To address the major environmental concerns of our time, we created an online environmental science textbook that includes discussion of environmental ethics and spirituality.

"Part of the power of this endeavor is that we're tapping into the expertise of scientists, ethicists and theologians around the globe.
It’s not a regional effort, it's a global effort. And, it’s adaptable to deal with the different manifestations of global environmental problems, rather than just the parochial, regional, North American centric perspective.

"We know the science. Healing Earth discusses that science with an ethical sense in a local context. It raises questions beyond the scientific realm, and it goes deep into our own hearts as to who we are and what needs to be transformed, both within us and within the students.
It challenges us."
