Loving Water across Religions
By: Elizabeth McAnally
Elizabeth McAnally strikes a remarkable balance in this academically rigorous and spiritually rich approach to the myriad global issues related to water. She draws from Christianity sacramental consciousness of baptism, loving service of the Yamuna River in Hinduism, and the compassionate wisdom of the bodhisattva to develop an integral approach to water ethics. Building on but distinct from the foundation laid by Christiana Zenner Just Water, this book is a welcome addition to the growing field of concern surrounding global water crises.
