Climate change is one of the most serious and difficult international challenges of the era and Pope Francis has played a surprisingly significant role in raising the moral questions of environmental issues to new prominence. Hear Dr. Willis J. Jenkins, Associate Professor of Religion, Ethics, and Environment at the University of Virginia, present a review of this compelling history.
Dr. Jenkins is the author of two award-winning books: Ecologies of Grace: Environmental Ethics and Christian Theology (Oxford 2008), which won a Templeton Award for Theological Promise, and The Future of Ethics: Sustainability, Social Justice, and Religious Creativity (Georgetown 2013), which won an American Academy of Religion Award for Excellence in the Study of Religion.
