Minding the Earth, Mending the World
We all know our earth is in trouble. But is it beyond repair? Are we stuck with a global disaster we cannot hope to address?
Despite the reality we find ourselves in, Susan Murphy reminds us of the astounding intelligence of nature and magnificence of the earth that exists under the strain of the developing catastrophe. She argues that not only is it not too late, but that we all have the capacity to embrace this challenge with a sense of hope and reason. By shining a sober light on the current state of emergency, she delivers a brilliant rethink of the crisis we face, radically challenging the stories we tell ourselves about the world, and illuminating the ways humanity might become the solution, rather than the problem.
What if we were to choose courage and resolve, rather than fear? What if we discovered the difference each of us could make?
Passionate and eloquent, this book shows how we can confront the threat without retreating into numbness, or resorting to denial, and live in the environmental reality of the here and now.
Here is a chance to engage with what it means to deeply mind the earth once more. In the tradition of the great eco-theologian Thomas Berry, Minding the Earth, Mending the World is a profoundly hopeful book which has arrived at exactly the right time.
