Religious Experience and New Materialism: Ecology and Social Movements [This chapter addresses some theoretical and practical issues concerning how social and religious movements might address urgent environmental concerns. Specifically, we advocate a confluence between what has been called the New Materialism and a more specifically Christian movement, Relational Christian Realism. Bringing these two terms together, we suggest, offers fresh insight into some of the most important ecological and political questions we confront. Furthermore, this chapter is the result of a collaboration by two scholars and theologians, one in the United Kingdom and one in the United States, who share viewpoints and perspectives across both countries with implications for other parts of the world.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png

Abstract

[This chapter addresses some theoretical and practical issues concerning how social and religious movements might address urgent environmental concerns. Specifically, we advocate a confluence between what has been called the New Materialism and a more specifically Christian movement, Relational Christian Realism. Bringing these two terms together, we suggest, offers fresh insight into some of the most important ecological and political questions we confront. Furthermore, this chapter is the result of a collaboration by two scholars and theologians, one in the United Kingdom and one in the United States, who share viewpoints and perspectives across both countries with implications for other parts of the world.]
