Summary

A leading scholar, ecotheologian, and Catholic priest who has spent more than fifty years writing about our engagement with the earth, Thomas Berry possesses a prophetic insight into the rampant destruction of the Earth's ecosystems and the extinction of its species. In this book he makes a persuasive case for an interreligious dialogue that can better confront the environmental problems of the twenty-first century. These erudite and keenly sympathetic essays represent Berry's best work on such issues as human beings' enduring alienation from nature to future, regenerative forms of religious experience. Asking that we create a new story of the universe and the emergence of Earth within it, Berry resituates the human spirit within a sacred world.
