16 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Gary Sprandel on November 20, 2001
Format: Paperback
Berry may be the only "geologian" - Earth scholar. As an 11 year old he had an epiphanal experience in a meadow that gave him a new sense of reality. Later as a priest of the Passionist order, he took the name Thomas after Thomas Aquinas, and is influenced by Aquinas' rediscovery of the universe and quotes from Summa Theologica. The first two essays introduce his cosmology under the broad topics "Economics" and "The earth: a new context for religious unity".
The remaining seven essays present a critique of Berry. Almost all are appreciative of Berry's view point even if differing. There are different perspectives offered on how strongly the Bible and the Redemption story should fit in to this evolving earth story. Physicist Brian Swimme offers a scientific perspective, of "science as a partner", on both the role of science in providing the story but also on the role of Berry in teaching to science. Additionally Berry is critiqued from a feminist standpoint. The book concludes with Berry's 12 principles for understanding the universe.
This book offers an introduction to Berry, and through the critiques and "Questions for discussion" after each chapter provides a useful whetstone for thinking about his new cosmology.
