Bemidji State Sociology Professor Publishes New Book on Environmental Concern & Religious Identity

Bemidji State University’s Dr. Lukas Szrot, assistant professor of sociology, recently published a new book titled “Faiths in Green: Religion, Environmental Change and Environmental Concern in the United States.”

His book focuses on environmental concern and religious identity in the United States, drawing on decades of population data and framed in terms of theory, history and personal narrative.

“Motivated by the hazards posed by environmental changes driven by human activity, including climate change, extinction of species, and pollution, I undertake this work as both a social scientist and concerned citizen,” Szrot said.
