Thomas Berry,Mary Evelyn Tucker: The Sacred Universe: Earth, Spirituality, and Religion in the Twenty-First Century
A leading scholar, cultural historian, and Catholic priest who spent more than fifty years writing about our engagement with the Earth, Thomas Berry possessed prophetic insight into the rampant destruction of ecosystems and the extinction of species. In this book he makes a persuasive case for an interreligious dialogue that can better confront the environmental problems of the twenty-first century. These erudite and keenly sympathetic essays represent Berry's best work, covering such issues as human beings' modern alienation from nature and the possibilities of future, regenerative forms of religious experience. Asking that we create a new story of the universe and the emergence of the Earth within it, Berry resituates the human spirit within a sacred totality.
Assignments in isolated outstations provide surreal moments, like the 80-year-old missionary in long friar's robes revealing natty turquoise shorts as he tears away on an ancient motorbike. Adventures on nearby Pacific islands relieve the intensity of life in a close-knit community of nationals and a cosmopolitan mix of expat 'characters'. Local women offer friendship, but their stories are often heart-breaking. More chaos arrives with Frisbee, the dog she inherits The Sacred Universe: Earth, Spirituality, and Religion in the Twenty-First Century free pdf when the project manager leaves, along with other project expats. Tensions increase between local factions supporting the project and those who feel threatened by it - and stuck in the middle is Trish. Her emotionally engaging memoir Inside the Crocodile is full of humour, adventure, iron determination and...Frisbee the dog. It is beautifully illustrated with colour photos of Trish's time there.
