Eco-spirituality

Issue 374

In the name of God was sheer pleasure, particularly David Boulton’s superbly written ‘Who needs religion?’ It surprised me that your only reference to eco-spirituality was one para (God the unauthorized biography) relegating it to historical primitivism. That’s a shame: modern earth-based spirituality is alive and well, with a growing scholarly literature; see Thomas Berry’s The Great Work (1999, Bell Tower) for starters. Australia’s Earth Bible project is a Christian angle on eco-spirituality, but its uniqueness lies in being embedded in the best of scientific evolutionary knowledge combined with a total blindness to culture, creed and dogma.
