In this engaging book, Cummings builds a bridge between the seemingly poles apart topics of ecology and spirituality and explores their common concern for justice, compassion, and quality of life.

Ecological awareness is increasing as we enter the "environmental decade." Not surprisingly, the concerns of ecology and spirituality intersect in the material world in which we all live. Indeed, for some, ecology has become a new religion. As this book emphasizes, everything is part of the web of life, and the mechanistic/scientific worldview of past decades is fast waning in the epoch of environmental crisis. Now science itself is writing the "new story of the universe," and finding it uncannily difficult to negate the presence of a Creator. Eco-spirituality sees the image of God in all of creation and consequently reveres life and the wonder and mystery of the sacred. The author maintains that nothing less than a spiritual and social revolution is needed to heal the unjust and exploitative behavior toward the Earth's resources. This succinctly argued theological solution to the "groaning of creation" is recommended.
