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.
