Dom Helder Camara puts forward a series of beautiful reflections on the role of human beings as co-creators of the universe. He writes with the sensitivity of a poet and the simplicity of one who is deeply spiritual. The reflections take us through the failures of our human condition to a discovery of the wonder and value of creation. A must-read for anyone interested in a Christian approach to ecology.
"Once started it is hard to put down. It is a work of simplicity, peace and insight."
"The depth of Camara's ideas, symbols, and language are striking. This is a very worthwhile book for meditation."
