Format: Hardcover
Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim edit The Christian Future and the Fate of Earth, a fine guide to Thomas Berry's reflections on Christianity and the environmental crisis. From the interrelatedness of the Earth community to a Christian thinker's concern over the Earth's situation, this offers some powerful connections between religion and the environment and is an ongoing pick for any serious Christian library.

The Christian Future and the Fate of Earth provides for us a guide into the future where humans can learn to live with all other species in peace and harmony. Thomas Berry helps us to know the story of the Universe and our story as One. He invites us to recognize our place in the Universe as one species among many, each having a role to play. These writings, edited by Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grimm, provide for us a way to create and live into a sustainable future. Highly recommend.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The Christian Future and the Fate of Earth is a thin, well developed and complex book. The book should be considered if you have time and background to slowly study the contents. If you are used to reading a book once and putting it aside, this is probably not for you. To fully comprehend this book, you will need to read it two or more times and with each reading additional insights are obtained. This is a cerebal project and not a beach speed read. You may want to consider forming a study group and and develop collective understanding building upon a team concept. With time and a little (lots) of effort, this book is a great addition to your knowledge and understanding of how Christians have a great responsibility for moral and spiritual as well as to the world community.

These 10 essays by Thomas Berry gave urgent messages 20-30 years ago. They are still pertinent and poignant, and call us to an immediate response, for the sake of our dear Earth.

Most of the Berry selections I have read and studied before, but it it always good to review them. Then there is a lot of new material for me too. I hang on every phrase and paragraph.

This book is a poignant reminder that we are all stewards of our wonderful planet, and we can all do a better job caring for and nurturing our environment. We start by changing our mindset, by remembering that we do not lord over this planet, though some may argue it is our God-given right to do so. This book is required reading for all who are trying to change their perspective about the role we play in preserving our planet.

Although many of the essays were written 20+ years ago, Berry's insights are even more appropriate today. I HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone desiring to assist opening our Christian tradition to the numinous aspects of the new discoveries of our cosmos!
