Abstract: (Show)

Thomas Berry, CP, and Thomas Clarke, SJ. Berry and Clarke discuss the role of religion in the ecological movement today. They agree that religion, to now, has completely failed to address the despoliation of the earth, which they believe to be the greatest crisis in the history of the planet. Yet they offer hope and viable ways for church leaders and individual Christians to forge a bond between theology and ecology that will move us forward in our quest to heal the world. Befriending the Earth provides a rich feast of spiritual, intellectual, and emotional thought for individuals hungering to discern how we can both nourish the earth and be recipients of its bountiful goodness.
