Overview

How can we bring about the profound conversion of mind and heart necessary to protect and preserve our planet at this critical point in history? Loving Creation shows that only when we are touched by God will we find new ways of relating to all other species and the Earth itself. Rich in tradition, the book draws from ancient and contemporary sources to fashion a holistic Christian spirituality that unites ecological concerns with social justice, personal struggles with those of the planet, theological reflection with scientific findings, and everyday grace with global outreach.

Filled with stories and practical suggestions, Loving Creation prayerfully guides readers to a broader vision of Christian maturity and a solid hope in the Spirit's power to shape us into the people we are meant to be. It builds on the ecological thinking of recent decades, while taking a fresh look at key areas of an Earth-centered spirituality-emotion, imagination, wonder, desire, asceticism, and legacy. In the process, the book suggests ways to incorporate greater ecological awareness into classical spiritual practices and will provide the spiritual foundation for sustained ecological action.
