Religion’s Timothy Beal receives praise for latest book on confronting climate crisis

Timothy Beal, the Florence Harkness Professor of Religion at Case Western Reserve University, recently received positive reviews on his newest book, When Time Is Short: Finding Our Way in the Anthropocene.

Publishers Weekly described Beal’s book as a “deconstruct(ion) of human exceptionalism” that confronts the impending peril of the climate crisis.
