The Sacred Universe: Earth, Spirituality, and Religion in the Twenty-first Century

The Sacred Universe The Sacred Universe Columbia University Press

  Thomas Berry

Columbia University Press, 2009

This is a culminating collection of Berry's writings and lifelong commitment to the sacredness of the earth and protection of it.

The book is divided into four themes: the variety within world religions as aways to relate to the earth, the importance of having an earth-centered spirituality, the value of relationship between science and religion, and how our connection with nature is a source for spirituality.

"The subtitle declares that these collected essays, published from 1972 to 2001, are still relevant. Readers confronting the planetary degradation that Berry chronicles in later essays and those recognizing a basic human need for spirituality will likely agree.... The essay collection acquires even more significance and urgency in light of Berry's death...."  -Publishers Weekly
