The Ecological Spirit and Global Culture

Book - 2004
Rate this:
Noted theologian Mary Grey believes we have gotten out of touch with our deepest desires and that this has caused us to acquiesce in global capitalism's most problematic characteristics. Story and symbol, she argues, can put us back in touch with our ''sacred longings.'' Focusing on such simple yet profound symbols as water, light, and sacred space, she tries to re-instill a spiritual quest. In the end, she envisions spirituality -- a kind of ecomystical renewal -- as an element in the transformation of desire, lived out in Christian community.

Part One examines how our culture has lost heart; Part Two analyzes our restless hearts; Part Three asks us to take heart and rekindle our thirst for righteousness.
