Item Description...
Outline ReviewDrawing upon the religions of indigenous people, editor Anne Rowthorn has assembled an elegant anthology for readers who find their God in the natural world. For example, Albert Einstein reflects upon the prison humans create when they delude themselves into believing they are separate from nature and the universe. Zen monk Thich Nhat Hahn writes of breathing clean morning air in walking meditation. Chief Sealth (Seattle) explains how every part of the earth is sacred. Even a Northwest logger might think twice before taking a chainsaw to a tree upon reading environmentalist John Muir's sad and beautiful lament, "Any Fool Can Destroy Trees." And poet Diane Ackerman writes of the divine speaking to her "between the wingbeats of hummingbirds, when love smiles humbly at sunrise and in the evening rain." Page by page, prayer by prayer, word by word, these profound pieces of writing offer lifelong companionship for all who believe that God and nature are one and the same. --Gail Hudson

Product Description
Anne Rowthorn drew together pieces ranging from the earliest Hindu song (3,000 B.C.) and the oldest known Celtic prayer to a contemporary poem by a Nigerian teenager, with a spate of religious and cultural works in between. This collection features works from the Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hahn, Ernesto Cardenal, Wendell Berry, Boris Pasternak, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, and Albert Einstein and pieces by children in UN environmental programs.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Worship and Engagement to Save The Earth!  Dec 18, 2000
This book is a treasury of creation stories, prayers, poems, blessings and rituals. I found it beneficial in two main ways. First, it allows the reader to experience creation from the perspectives of diverse cultures. The breadth of the author's research is evident here, particularly in the inclusion of a significant amount of Asian material which is unknown to most of us in the West. Additionally, her brief notes at the end of each piece help to contextualize the material. But by far my favorite part of the anthology is the second half which contains many rituals celebrating nature. These can be used in personal prayer or communal worship. The author's own Creation Creed and Agape Liturgy are beautiful and easily incorporated into Christian worship. Last but not least, I was very impressed by the introduction to the book which sets what proceeds in the context of ecological activism. The book enables readers to deepen their love for our Earth and thus to sustain activism to save our planet-home for all species and ourselves.
An excellent anthology of religious celebration.  Mar 3, 2000
Anne Rowthorn edits Earth And All The Stars (106-X, $15.95), which gathers writings on reconnecting to nature through stories, hymns and prayers from world religions. This draws from a range of religious disciplines to consider these prayers, litanies and songs from ancient to modern times, providing an excellent anthology of celebration.
