An ongoing pick for any serious Christian library Nov. 13 2009
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim edit The Christian Future and the Fate of Earth, a fine guide to Thomas Berry's reflections on Christianity and the environmental crisis. From the interrelatedness of the Earth community to a Christian thinker's concern over the Earth's situation, this offers some powerful connections between religion and the environment and is an ongoing pick for any serious Christian library.

These writings, edited by Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grimm, provide for us a way to create and live into a sustainable future. Highly recommend.

Book review Sept. 26 2010
By vjp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The Christian Future and the Fate of Earth is a thin, well developed and complex book. The book should be considered if you have time and background to slowly study the contents. If you are used to reading a book once and putting it aside, this is probably not for you. To fully comprehend this book, you will need to read it two or more times and with each reading additional insights are obtained. This is a cerebal project and not a beach speed read. You may want to consider forming a study group and and develop collective understanding building upon a team concept. With time and a little (lots) of effort, this book is a great addition to your knowledge and understanding of how Christians have a great responsibility for moral and spiritual as well as to the world community.

The Earth Can Get Along Without Us Humans March 25 2010
By Denise M. Collins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
These 10 essays by Thomas Berry gave urgent messages 20-30 years ago. They are still pertinent and poignant, and call us to an immediate response, for the sake of our dear Earth.

Berry at his best Feb. 13 2010
By James L. Facette - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Most of the Berry selections I have read and studied before, but it it always good to review them. Then there is a lot of new material for me too. I hang on every phrase and paragraph.
