Reviews
Booklist
"A pioneer of ecotheology, Sittler addressed environmental concerns even before the publication of Rachel Carson's Silent Spring. As the editors' introductory and concluding essays note, Sittler's lasting significance lies in his insistence that environmental concerns be addressed by Christians in terms of Christology and grace. For Sittler, environmental degradation isn't just wrong, its is blasphemous. He invites us to share aesthetic delight in a world permeated by God's surprising presence."

The Lutheran
"It's an occasion for rejoicing that Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. recently released Evocations of Grace. . . The collection includes the most important of Sittler's writings and speeches, drawing together the concepts of nature and grace--his theological trademark. As he said often, he is not a theology of nature but rather a theology for nature--an incarnational theology whose lasting importance cannot be overstated."
