Product Description

Details

Katharine Preston challenges us to think more deeply about the human condition and our choices in this time of ever-increasing climate disturbance.



Moved by the landscapes surrounding her home, Wild Orchard Farm, and drawing on both her ecological and theological training, she writes for scientists leery of faith, people of faith who know and love the miracles of science, and anybody who shares the vision of the planet as a sacred community.



Katharine studied anthropology as an undergraduate at Brandeis University, learning from indigenous American cultures about the place of humans in the natural world. She went on to gain a Master's in Forest Science from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies and a Master's of Divinity from Andover Newton Theological School.



She and her husband, John Bingham, live in Essex, New York and are active associates of the Iona Community.



Fascinating theological reflection - grounded in the real world, and in the greatest crisis of our time on earth. I'm so glad someone is asking these questions.

There will be more books like this. There have to be. But read this one now, and be uplifted by Katharine's sense of wonder, fed by her scientific and theological literacy, her experiential reasoning, and her realistic and timely passion for the Earth and all its creatures in this, our age of accelerating climate crisis.
