Canticles of the Earth: Celebrating the Presence of God in Nature

Couverture
Loyola Press, 2004 - 206 pages
Humankind has always sought the divine in creation. Because God is present in the natural world, everyone, regardless of geography, economics, or faith tradition, can experience the richness of the divine in nature. With a focus on finding God in the natural world, F. Lynne Bachleda has assembled 160 nature-based meditative readings that span genres, religions, and centuries, from ancient to modern poetry and prose. Arranged so that it may be used as a Book of Hours for worship four times a day, Canticles of the Earth invites the reader to take time to contemplate the mysteries of the natural world. Including contributions from well-known nature writers, saints and biblical authors, this collection celebrates nature while encouraging the reader to meditate on the "treasure-laden earth."
