The prose in this this book is so elegant and concise that I let the book speak for itself: “To know one’s place in the cosmos is to know something of immense spiritual value,” writes the author, a professor of Religion and Philosophy at Luther College. He convincingly argues that “Everybody’s problem calls for everybody’s story.” In this book he shows how the Epic of Evolution constructs “a new wisdom tradition that couples an evolutionary cosmology to an ecocentric morality.” This book fulfills the author’s goal “to inspire grateful service to the enduring promise of life on this planet.”
