(p.1) Introduction
God and the Green Divide

Amanda J. Baugh

University of California Press

This chapter advances the book’s central argument: the spread of religious environmentalism in the United States has relied not simply on the “ecological dimensions” of scriptures, theology, and religious traditions, but also on latent assumptions about race, ethnicity, and class. It also introduces the work of Faith in Place in the context of other religious environmental movements in the United States, and discusses how the book contributes to conversations in American religion, religion and ecology, and lived religion.

Keywords:   Religious environmentalism, religion and ecology, women and nature, eco-divide, environmental ethics, lived religion, green ceiling, secularism, liberal Protestantism, interfaith
