Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

We enter our houses of worship in search of meaning and understanding, but can we include the halls of academe and scientific laboratories as additional sources of inspiration? Science writer Barlow gives us an enthusiastic Yes! She builds her book on conversations with biologists, ecologists, and religious scholars, who argue in groups and individually for the appreciation of what leading socibiologist E.O. Wilson has coined as the "epic of evolution": the reading of creation and evolution as a spiritual text that calls us to care for our world and each other. Scientists are increasingly working with environmentalists, mainline Christian denominations, and others to call us to protect our planet. This book has the potential to be a key work for environmentalists and those interested in the relationship between science and religion. Highly recommended for all public and academic libraries.

"Green Space, Green Time could well mark a turning point in humanity's troubled relationship with nature." -John Davis Editor, Wild Earth Magazine

More About the Author

Connie Barlow (b. 1952) had 4 science books published between 1991 and 2001. All explore how a mainstream understanding of evolutionary biology can help us feel deeply rooted in this world and supported by a glorious ancestry. In 2001, she shifted her focus to online writings and curricula, as webmaster of the acclaimed TheGreatStory dot org website. In 2009 she (with her husband, Michael Dowd) launched a podcast: "America's Evolutionary Evangelists." She regularly uploads evolutionary videos to her YouTube channel, ghostsofevolution, which echoes the title of her last book, "The Ghosts of Evolution." You can sample Connie's free writings (including contributed chapters to books) at her publications page on her website (google: Connie Barlow publications). Connie is also the founder and webmaster of an ecological activist group: TorreyaGuardians dot org.

Connie Barlow's Green Space, Green Time is a testimonial to the emerging bridge between science and religion. Writing primarily from the perspective of biology and ecology, Barlow predicts that a New Age religion is now in the process of forming, and that its underlying tenets will be the wonderful discoveries about evolution and ecology which science has provided. She acknowledges that previously science has not really provided an image of the meaningfulness of human life within the greater cosmos, and this has been a shortcoming. Humanity needs a story in order to achieve integration, to feed the human spirit. What better story, she asks, than the one which science provides us about where we all come from and why we (all beings) need to relate to each other in harmony? The book is well written and easily accessible to the non-scientific reader. Moreover, it celebrates the cooperation of a group of leading-edge scientists and inclusive religionists, in the form of conversations and dialogues with leading thinkers in both fields such as Edward Wilson, Ursula Goodenough, Brian Swimme, Loyal Rue, Lynn Margulis, James Lovelock, and Stephen Harding.

As someone who closely follows contemporary religious "revival" and "renewal," I welcome Barlow's guidance for those who sense a need to re-story experience in a way which honors and integrates science and wisdom. This kind of work, by authors like Barlow, and by individuals everywhere, is truly a recovery of our ability to repair the world in the deepest sense.

Interesting and enlightening. However, difficult to separate facts from faith.Similar to Tiplers' "Physics of immortality".Difficult to imagine that a tiny superficial layer of life is a major geologic force on a planet of 8000 miles in diameter.
