9780896225831: Earth Story, Sacred Story

In this profoundly motivating book, author James Conlon proposes a new approach to life on Earth. He looks at the present ecological situation-- including the depletion of natural resources, pollution, and the devastation of wilderness and wildlife-- and urges readers to adapt to a lifestyle more in sync with the needs of our planet. "Earth Story, Sacred Story" examines elements of our culture that are undesirable in terms of their ultimately negative impact on the quality of life in general. The squelching of creativity by modern institutions is seen by Conlon as particularly harmful; in this regard, he focuses on aspects of culture that can be changed and nurtured to enact a return to our creative origins. Conlon is conversant with the teachings of modern theologians in regard to Earth spirituality: Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Thomas Berry, Gregory Baum, and Dom Helder Camara. Discussion questions at the end of each chapter, an intensive bibliography, and a concise glossary make this an ideal book for adult study groups. The individual reader will also find much that is of challenge and benefit in these pages. (From the back cover)
