The Sacred Universe : Earth, Spirituality, and Religion in the Twenty-First Century Hardback

Edited by Mary Evelyn Tucker

Description

A leading scholar, cultural historian, and Catholic priest who spent more than fifty years writing about our engagement with the Earth, Thomas Berry possessed prophetic insight into the rampant destruction of ecosystems and the extinction of 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, covering such issues as human beings' modern alienation from nature and the possibilities of future, regenerative forms of religious experience.

Asking that we create a new story of the universe and the emergence of the Earth within it, Berry resituates the human spirit within a sacred totality.
