About-

In this innovative volume, Jay McDaniel creatively weaves various strands of contemporary theology into a vibrant pattern for an ecological spirituality.

Influenced by process theology, the author synthesizes core insights of feminism, liberation theology, creation theology, and world religions. He focuses this varied knowledge around the central theme of an ecologically sound and nurturing faith.

The work is strengthened by provocative study questions, an insightful appendix on the role of silence in ecological spirituality, and a comprehensive, annotated bibliography.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"In this study . . . by Jay McDaniel, we find a new context for an ecological spirituality, in a remarkable way. He has brought together the traditional modes of religious thought with the modern scientific insights, and the philosophy of . . . Alfred North Whitehead, all as aspects of an integral approach to our ecological concerns."
-Thomas Berry, author of The Dream of the Earth

"McDaniel . . . achieves a rare inclusiveness by drawing together the contributions of others and enriching them through his own originality. What emerges is something genuinely new and fully authentic to the best of our contemporary understanding. If a healthy new piety is coming to birth in our time, this is it."
-John B. Cobb, Jr., School of Theology at Claremont

"An earth-loving, spirit touched book, warmly and lucidly accessible in its call to an ecological Christianity. It dreams and defends a needed vision of our place and hope, our possibilities and accountabilities, among fellow earth creatures."
-Catherine Keller, author of From a Broken Web: Separation, Sexism and Self
