About the Author
John B. Cobb, Jr. is an American theologian, philosopher, and environmentalist. Described by historian Gary Dorrien as one of the two most important North American theologians of the twentieth century, Cobb is the preeminent scholar in the fields of process philosophy and process theology and the author of more than fifty books. In 2014, he was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Cobb is a founding co-director of the Center for Process Studies and Professor Emeritus of Claremont School of Theology and Claremont Graduate University.

"A prophet does not see the future: a prophet sees what is present and where it is leading. Cobb, a lonely prophet who, like Cassandra, saw in stunning detail more than most could accept. Now, he points us toward saving what can still be saved in the shrinking interval left to us." --Daniel C. Maguire, Marquette University

"Cobb is one of the few theologians who can release a book 50 years later with both timeless philosophical truths and contemporary relevance. With both repentance and hope, Cobb shows how a commitment to deep relationality propels Christians to care for the natural world." --Monica A. Coleman, University of Delaware

"The planet has changed dramatically since 1972. It is even more remarkable that Cobb's response holds up so well and remains a deeply probing effort to find our way to a reconstructed Christianity amid profoundly altered conditions. Cobb's fifty-year retrospective is itself a treasure that complements the original work." --Larry Rasmussen, Union Theological Seminary

"Fifty years ago, Cobb realized that neither classical Christian theology nor modern secular culture and its philosophers provided an adequate foundation for enthusiastic ecological responsibility. The new preface and updated bibliography make this edition a valuable resource for students, teachers, and anyone else interested in the liberation of life." --John F. Haught, Georgetown University

"The preface of this edition helps to interrupt the white Christian protestant norm in the field and reminds us of the connection between earth justice, interfaith dialogue, racial and social justice. Detailing his own 50 year theological journey alongside the journey of this book, new insights from Cobb read like gifts. They help us chart a path towards ecological reparations and give us hope for churches and the world." --Melanie L. Harris, Texas Christian University
