"After three decades of reflection on the human relationship with nature and the ways in which Christian theology can resource a renewal of that relationship, Paul Santmire has produced a book that shows a theology matured over time.
"Newcomers to this area of ecological theology will be rewarded by the author's ability to summarize clearly and briefly the work of other writers in this field. ... He also rewards the reader with a clear sense of the path the theological debate in its North American form has taken over the last few decades. ...
"In its later chapters the book takes on a more personal and narrative style. ... These later chapters also articulate astute reflections on the Christian understandings of such central subjects as death and Eucharist."
