Summary or Abstract : In this dissertation, a particular pedagogical moment is examined to discover how religious education might be shaped by ecologically aware practices. After examining the charges that Christianity and Judaism are inherently against the health of the world, the dissertation proceeds with interdisciplinary review of wilderness philosophy, theological anthropology, and progressive education. The contingent character of knowing within these theoretical areas sets the stage for a practical pedagogical experiment. In chapter one, investigations in anthropology frame questions about how human beings are perceived, building toward a constructive ecological theological anthropology. Chapter two explores the resources of progressive education for clues as to how education may challenge, sustain, reveal, or renew unexamined commitments of individuals and communities. In chapter three, the concepts of faith, meaning-making, praxis, and practice shape an emerging definition for ecological religious education. Chapter four examines a strategy for ecological religious education through an experiential course in theology and ecology taught with young adults on Sapelo Island, Georgia (1998-2000). Students read theological and ecological texts, worked with a local ecologist, engaged in local narrative and crafts, kayaking, and poetic reflection. Reflection upon narratives arising from the experimental strategy offer insights for the further refinement and construction of a model for ecological religious education..
