About the Author:

Barry McDonald's authoritative voice on the world's religions has been formed by a combination of academic study and first hand contact with various sacred traditions throughout the world. He received his undergraduate education at Goddard College and his graduate degree at Indiana University. The six months that he spent in the Middle East in 1973 began a series of life long contacts with authentic representatives of most of the world's great religions, including travels to the Middle East, Asia, North Africa, Europe and the American West. Thomas Yellowtail, the venerable Crow medicine man and Sun Dance chief, adopted McDonald into the Crow tribe.

He is a published poet and has edited Every Branch in Me: Essays on the Meaning of Man, in the Perennial Philosophy series and is in the process of editing, with Patrick Laude, Music of the Sky: An Anthology of Sacred Poetry, scheduled for publication in the Fall of 2003 in the Treasures of the World's Religions Series. His writing style combines the lyrical beauty of a poet, the penetrating metaphysical understanding of a scholar, and the personal insights of a spiritual seeker.

Book Description World Wisdom Books, United States, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 336th ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. This collection of essays on the relationship between nature and the sacred reflects the thoughts of some of the most important religious authorities and scholars from Buddhist, Christian, Islamic, Jewish and Native American traditions. Covering subjects ranging from flower viewing in Japan to the spiritual dimension of the environmental crisis, some of these articles are simple and poetic meditations while others are richly layered metaphysical studies concerning the divine root of creation. Following each essay is a short poem, drawn from various traditions of spiritual poetry, echoing the underlying theme of the book. The most important and urgent message of this anthology is that our current environmental crisis results from a loss of spiritual centre and that the physical world cannot be separated from the metaphysical without suffering potentially disastrous consequences. Its fundamental thesis is that our continuing physical and spiritual well-being is ultimately linked to our ability to see God everywhere and to remember Him in all things. Whether this view is theistic, according to Western and Native American traditions, or none theistic, according to the Buddhist perspective, all of the essays in this collection underline our need to recognise and embrace the interdependence of all things in the unity of the Real and to extend our definition of the spiritual into the ecological. This vision of the immanence of God in nature is the most radical of all ecological perspectives because it points to the Origin of all that is. Bookseller Inventory # ANB9780941532426
