Climate Change and Global Religious Pluralism

Berry, Evan; Brock, Jan; Everett, Sami; John, Fahy

In social scientific examinations of religious pluralism, the typical scale of analysis is the nation state, though considerations at the community or neighbourhood level are also common (e.g., Mislin in Saving Faith: Making Religious Pluralism an American Value at the Dawn of the Secular Age. Cornell University Press, Ithaca, NY, 2015; Phan in The Joy of Religious Pluralism: A Personal Journey. Orbis Books, Maryknoll, 2014). Scholars have devoted considerable energy to the task of understanding the dynamism of the so-called ‘religious marketplace’ in the United States or to the status of minoritarian traditions in nations with established religious institutions.
