About the Author

Andrew R. H. Thompson is assistant professor of theological ethics and director of the Center for Religion and Environment at the University of the South (Sewanee). He is the author of All My Holy Mountain: A Christian Ethical Response to Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining (2015).


"Thompson gives us a thoughtful and candid look at the dangers and inadequacies of Christian environmentalism when it does not take seriously the various and rich ways in which peoples of color see a technicolor creation that we must save. His anti-oppressive Christian environmentalism calls us to cast a wide vision for transformative ways of knowing that embrace a deeply incarnational theology--one that throws open the doors of typical Christian environmentalism to cherish a world of humans and more-than-humans in order to save us all." --Emilie M. Townes, University Distinguished Professor of Womanist Ethics and Society and Gender and Sexuality Studies, Vanderbilt University Divinity School; author of Womanist Ethics and the Cultural Production of Evil

"In a clear and forthright voice, Thompson explains how whiteness has distorted Christian environmentalism. Then, listening well to decolonial and anti-racist voices, he constructs helpful pathways toward an anti-oppressive theological environmentalism. An important book!" --Willis Jenkins, Hollingsworth Professor of Ethics, University of Virginia
