Moved by the landscapes surrounding her home, Wild Orchard Farm, and drawing on both her ecological and theological training, Katharine Preston 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. She challenges us to think more deeply about the human condition and our choices in this time of ever-increasing climate disturbance.

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.
