Earth & Spirit
The Spiritual Dimension of the Environmental CrisisBook - 1993
"As we watch the health of the environment worsen, we know that real changes must be made in the way we live if we are to ensure a healthy future for the planet and the human family. As science and ecology describe the changes now required, what remains is the will to act - the motivation, courage, and creativity to change course." "Until recently, the spiritual dimension of the environmental crisis has been largely ignored. Today, this is changing. Many people, including numerous religious, environmental, and political leaders, now believe that the accelerating deterioration of the environment is preeminently a spiritual crisis of the greatest magnitude. Its resolution depends on a basic transformation of human hearts and minds, a profound reshaping of how we think and how we live." "Earth & Spirit is based on the conviction that the spiritual dimension of life provides a relatively untapped reservoir of wisdom, imagination, and strength for meeting the challenge of a damaged planet and for calling humanity into a new relationship with the natural order. It includes writings by Thomas Berry, Paul Gorman, Brian Swimme, Joanna Macy, and many other experts."--BOOK JACKET.
