"Privately, I suspected there was some force that drove human existence. I felt it in me and outside me, all around me, and in all living things."

To and From God is one man's spiritual journey from "Churchie" Anglican schoolboy in Australia to agnostic environmental activist.

In this refreshingly honest spiritual memoir, geography teacher and orienteering enthusiast Robin Simson explores philosophy, scientific thought, theology, and environmental principles in a bid to explain how his passion for the natural world made him analyse long-held Christian ideals and find them wanting in the face of secular humanism, Gaia theory, and ethics.
