This book appeals for a holistic Christian approach to the stewardship of creation.

It seeks common ground between the commitment to social justice within third-world liberation theologies and the environmental consciousness characteristic of eco-feminist theologies. Gnanadason begins her study with concrete examples of the struggles of Indigenous peoples, and especially women, to preserve traditions of prudent care for the earth in opposition to the modern ideal of 'development' prized by multinational corporations, neo-liberal financial institutions and many national governments.

She cites examples of 'eco-systems peoples' who challenge the economic doctrines that nature is an object to be exploited and natural resources are commodities to be bartered, and proceeds to argue for a global ethic of care for the earth, an ethic of resistance that shows appreciation for both social and ecological concerns related to the integrity of God's creation.
