ChristianityNext: Gender & Ecojustice

January 23, 2023

ChristianityNext Issue #7: “Gender & Ecojustice” Winter 2023 is now available! Get your copy by donating to ISAAC at Vanco or contacting us at info@christianitynext.org.

In the last 30 years, world leaders have been talking away the impending ecological crisis without walking their talks. Often environmental issues are perceived and shaped by the white middle class with people of color somewhat absent from the table. The heartbeat of the environmental crisis today flows from the flaws of Christian theology and from pulpits that focus on otherworldly and individual salvation. In response to this reductionistic theology, ChristianityNext issue 7 alerts Asian American Christians and the wider community to our responsibilities for the tender care of God’s creation. We hope this discourse will find its way to Asian American pulpits and households and lead toward responsible stewardship of the environment.
