Format: Hardcover
Considered the "Green Patriarch," His All Holiness Bartholomew I has devoted more attention to environmental concerns throughout his twenty (20) years as Ecumenical Patriarch [1991-2011], as well as many years prior [born 1940], than any "worldwide church leader" [1]. The title of this third and final volume for his twenty-year ecological legacy of collected speeches, writings and homilies--edited by John Chryssavgis--draws upon a phrase in the Lord's Prayer: "on earth as in heaven." The supplicatory phrase indicates a present and future possibility that the will of God "is" to bring the orderliness and respect of the holy dwelling in the heavens to the earth. In fact, the order of words in the Greek original reads as follows: "as in heaven, so on the earth."

HRH Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, attests to the same in his Foreword to this book [vii-ix], wherein he traces how the future Ecumenical Patriarch provided "inspired (global) leadership" for bearing Christian witness to the aims of the 1986 World Wide Fund for Nature's [WWF; "World Wildlife Fund" in North America] twenty-fifth anniversary in Assisi, Italy. HRH Philip had served as president to the WWF throughout the 1980's, during which time the 1986 Assisi-based general conference resulted in the creation of the Alliance of Religious Conservation [ARC].

ARC held one of its earliest convocations on the Dodecanese island of Patmos in the Aegean Sea during September 1988, which was initiated and led by +Bartholomew representing the Ecumenical Partriarchate with the theme, "Religion and the Environment.
