What does it mean to live in harmony with all of God's creation? How might our spiritual practice contribute to the healing of this place we call home, and to our own healing along the way? Rachel Wheeler offers compelling testimony for the value--and the life-giving power--of "rewilding." For conservationists, rewilding is a strategy of human restraint, of letting the wild enact ecological repair on its own terms. The "wild" is a quality of life beyond the control of the human. For Christians, a rewilding spirituality restores the life-generating and life-sustaining norms in which we were created to dwell.

Radical Kinship: A Christian Ecospirituality provides readers with both theoretical foundations for understanding a rewilded Christian spirituality for the twenty-first century and practical strategies for rewilding our own lives. Wheeler brings biblical foundations and the history of Christian spirituality into conversation with environmental ethics, ecopsychology, and ecopoetics. The frameworks she constructs bring Christian spiritual tradition back to its deepest foundations not only as a product of human culture, but as one shaped in large part by Christians in relationship with other-than-human members of the Earth community.
