Dr. Larry L. Rasmussen is one of the world's foremost Christian environmental ethicist. Dr. Rasmussen has mentored a generation of Christians in eco-theology and “green religion.” He spearheaded the “greening” at the Union Theological Seminary as an institution and rooted his courses and scholarship in the practice of environmental justice with communities and community leaders. He has published more than a dozen books, including the landmark, award-winning Earth Community, Earth Ethics. He is currently directing a 10-year project on Earth-honoring Christianity at Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, New Mexico.

A Minnesota native, Rasmussen studied history and philosophy at St. Olaf College (B.A., 1964). He received a bachelor of divinity degree from Luther Theological Seminary (1965), and his Th.D. from Union Theological Seminary (1970). Following service as an assistant professor of religion at St. Olaf and a professor of Christian ethics at Wesley Theological Seminary, Washington, D.C., he was appointed the Reinhold Niebuhr Professor of Social Ethics at Union Theological Seminary in New York in 1986, retiring in 2004. He served as co-moderator of the Justice, Peace, Creation unit of the World Council of Churches 1990–2000.

Dr. Rasmussen’s volume Earth Community, Earth Ethics (Maryknoll: Orbis Books, 1996) won the prestigious Grawemeyer Award in Religion of 1997. He served as a member of the Science, Ethics, and Religion Advisory Committee of the AAAS and was a recipient of a Henry Luce Fellowship in Theology, 1998–99. He has long been active in international ecumenical circles, particularly in the World Council of Churches, where he served for many years as co-chair of the Justice, Peace, and Integrity of Creation Commission. He has been active in the Society of Christian Ethics for decades and served as the SCE president in 1990
